As ever (have been many times), staff very professional but friendly and helpful; food excellent, beautifully served; service professional, timely; lovely tiny relaxing waiting area for drinks/coffee; lovely surroundings & atmosphere, elegant and restful. Often visit with family. Have been going for a few years and always excellent.

This place is wonderful. It has a load of really different items on the menu and will bend over backwards to make you feel welcomed and cook to suit your desires. The Cinnamon Chili Fish, an award winning dish, is just that.... excellent. Add sensitive, attentive service and you have a winning evening in store.

We phoned on the day and booked, towards the end of the meal the restaurant was starting to fill up so i'd recommend booking where ever possible. The staff were friendly and explained the menu to my wife who doesn't like spicy food and they offered to prepare... More

A great restaurant with a good menu choice, the food is excellent and we return here regularly, it is busy at weekends so you will need to book. The restaurant is quite spacious and the tables aren't too close like other. Only drawback is a long stair which you need to climb..the entrance does not give impression that a great... More
