The food took over an hour to arrive, admittedly there were quite a few of us, but we were utterly fed up by the time dinner arrived.

We were delighted to find this little restaurant. The... More

Don't usually eat chinese food, (unless in china town) but every other place was full, so we had to eat here, service was okay, food actually was quite good, except for the green thai curry (never seen pineapple in Thai food before) which was little odd, but over all much as we expected, doubt we would go back, but as...
