Meat in curry was a little undercooked but otherwise lovely! Amazing spare ribs and chicken and sweet corn soup!

Had the Sunday buffet and must say it was ok but not as good as it used to be. The satay chicken was of poor quality and although a favourite of mine, I left after one bite. The restaurant itself is much improved and now lighter and a little more spacious but the service does not seem at the same... More

Really enjoyed the food on the lunch menu. Although this is the case, the service was pretty bad and substandard. I have been here many times in the past and have always enjoyed myself - perhaps this is just a one off.

Great little lunch menu with soup, a side dish, main and dessert for only £7 when I was there last, it's now £8. The staff are friendly and always remember me.

The décor is bland, the food is bland, the service, not great and to top it off, it was quite expensive? I know some people really like this place but I don't know why? Maybe i'm missing something, but I wont be returning any time soon. And as for the gents loos......yuk!
