A perfect description of this establishment. Myself and husband had the platter which was heaven. It was perfectly presented and the rice placed in the middle of the plate surrounded by lots of different things. This I found very appealing because you could just tuck in with the varying dishes with a difference and nibble away to your hearts content.... More

I ordered the platter and added... More

After reading about this restraunt I was so excited about visiting it. I was dissapointed as there was no atmosphere. No music was playing, staff had a lack of customer service. They were only interested in catering for parties of people. The platter was all on one plate. Like it was all thrown on a plate and even the rice... More

We visited this evening, and a very last minute booking... The atmosphere was ok and Bob Marley playing out via the speakers.... Our starters were delayed and we were offered them free, which we declined, but it shows that they acknowledged they were late... But they were very nice, it would have been nice to have the salad leaves dressed,... More
