I heard great reports from this place but I was so disappointed. Very poor.. tasteless food served 'warm'. Staff friendly although very disorganised. Won't be rushing back.

Everyone was special in it. and when the time came they played the appropriate music and all joined in. Although they were so busy our meal was perfect and the service could... More
