after hearing shouting and arguing in the kitchen, the atmosphere between the staff not good in the dining room, food kept warm on a mini hostess tray. Plates were dirty, and one of the specials l nearly choked on. Afterwards the waiter came over to check if l was ok, this was only a second thought. Table cloths had holes... More

Food was ok nothing special. There was only our party in the restaurant no background music or anything. Felt like the staff were looking over you hurrying you through the courses to get you out of the restaurant I won't be returning in a hurry.

4 of us ate dinner there. They use different adjectives to describe the spiciness but in the end it seemed totally random with some dishes very mild and one being so hot it was barely edible.

Not been here for years and to be honest nothing has changed much! Had the Tuesday night special which was good value for money. The staff were friendly and attentive. If planning to pay by credit/debit card they put a transaction fee which I think is unjustified!!
