Had dinner with friends on Wednesday evening 16 July 2014 and the manager that was on duty had a stinking attitude. No way of dealing with guest. All the hard work and good services by the host and waiter was over shadowed by the managers attitude.

My favourite is still b+++ bingo - but Princess Pop entertained us on Wednesday night! Good burgers, good vibe - good entertainment! Have to agree with many other reviewers - it is expensive. But always a... More

The food was okay, but I am not really sure people would go here for a genuine sit down meal but rather the entertainment and the topless waiters (who remove their shirts at around 21:30 after getting up on stage) was an interesting addition. The first time I went here, I really enjoyed it as the food and the service... More

Great fun, although cocktails are very expensive and food is not amazing, the show and waiters alone are worth the visit!

Definitely a place to go for an evening to remember. The staff great fun and extremely good looking. If you like burgers you're in for a treat. Of course the body shots are good too :-)

Very disappointing burgers for anyone used to the real thing. Started out as a hot gay focused burger joint that has now become a hangout for lonely straight women wanting to peek at topless waiters. Another version of Hooters!

What fun we had at this destination restaurant. Difficult to get a booking, but it shows how popular this venue is. Always a good sign. The staff are amazing. Good bodies too. The burgers are creative and very tasty. The show was great and the atmosphere outstanding. What a great evening out and a wonderful break from normality for an... More

I like the vibe, food and service, and on performance nights the venue is a melting point for the gay community and heterosexual people. Think Ru Paul, and you'll get the picture

The vibe is gay and Friendly. Always a treat to have one of the many burgers and watch a drag show or Bingo. Your food is served by good looking waiter who makes you feel welcome. If you want an evening out on the town, this is the place to go!

A super fun and vibey place to go! The burgers were quite delicious, but the drinks menu was better. The pink tea - I think I had about 5! - was addictive! Definitely a place to visit for the entertainment value. We went on the evening of the drag queen show and what a show! Not to mention the waiters,... More
