“Wow sized portions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

We went here for a friends birthday and seated upstairs which we had to ourselves. Good atmosphere and really friendly waiter who had a good chat with our table and made some recommendations. Food is more than amazing here, really offers something different for Chester. Chicken "kluck" special is absolutely fantastic. If you have not been here check it out!

“Best place in Chester ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Visit this city annually me and the mrs and have eaten almost everywhere but must have to say from the moment we entered the restaurant(no booking) still accommodated us. Staff are excellent, place is immaculately clean, chef's are pristine in there work, toilets are to 5* hotel standard and to visit Chester and not sample this cuisine would be a opportunity missed. And to top it all off the bill(prices) and brilliant. Two courses and bottle of wine less than £40. Enough said.

“Tasty food, great atmosphere, book a table”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We were visiting Chester for the weekend and were recommended to try this restaurant. So glad we did, it was amazing, the food was delicious. It;s always a good sign when the locals eat in too. It's just a short walk from the Railway Station (towards the Cathedral & City Centre)

We had the Hot Mezze Starter, Fried Halloumi Cheese, Turkish Sausage, Lamb Meat Balls and Hot Chicken Wings. I then had Lamb Meatballs with rice for my main course and my partner had the Lamb Stew with rice. Service was good, attentive but not over the top. We were amazed when we got the bill, great value for money. We couldn't eat another thing!

“Excellent service, friendly and easy going staff, nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The food was good...not 5 star cuisine but something different and really big portions. The thing that most impressed was the staff. They were friendly and had a really good chat with them. They actually knew what they were talking about when it came to the food and didnt seem forced or rehearsed.

Highly reccomend here for eating out with friends or family. Dont let the location put you off!
