Nice food. Music too loud. Good atmosphere. Toilets in need of serious refurb (also a clean and some new light bulbs)! Whole place could do with an overhaul to be honest. Was my first time at the restaurant but I'm not too sure whether I'll be back any time soon.

Birthday meal. Disappointment all round, especially by those who had been before. Service was appalling considering we were the only people in the place. Staff were actively hostile when it was politely pointed out that the pre-ordered food was incorrect. It was our first visit, with friends who had been before, and we certainly won't be hurrying back. Whole experience... More

The food here is fantastic for anyone who likes to try things with a little more taste and spice than the average English dish. Me and my friends enjoyed the sharing platter, which contained various meats, fish's and vegatables etc. We all loved it! The only downside would be that the service is of no greater standard than that of... More

I visited this restaurant nearly two weeks ago with friends and will be returning. Food was tasty and reasonably priced and cocktails although small again had a fantastic taste. The only criticism was when we ordered cocktails it took over 30minutes to arrive. We had managed to order our main, eat our main and have our table cleared before they... More

Went on a Sunday with my Mum and a friend. The food was brilliant, so was the price. Everyone was really friendly and the waitress was superb. The ambience was really chilled. I would definitely recommend it.
