Our group ordered everything from full meals to just tea and that was fine as were individual checks. The wait staff was friendly and efficient! Amazing how they... read more

Nice atmosphere, lounge on one side, restaurant seating on the other. Large menu. Take out and delivery within 3 miles. Portions are good. Box your own leftovers.

However, pork in sauce/veg's was unedible. We've... More

Always quick to bring the drinks and clear empty glasses. Check in frequently during the meal to see how everything is and if we need refills. The only negative that we have is... More
