This place appears to be a bad idea based on first impressions, as the gawdy lights, glass, mirrors and plethora of TV's on the walls are a definite off putter, but I would recommend you ignore this and look on it as a kitsch adventure - the food is absolutely superb.
Make sure you ask the owner for a recommendation - I have had several outstanding dishes as a result of doing this and have never been disappointed (and he has always offered to change anything I don't like). Don't leace it to chance, as there are bound to be dishes you don't like as well as those you do on such a large menu. On several occasions, I have been here with a group and ordered loads of dishes, all of which have turned out to be completely different - this is surely a good sign. The food comes served in large pyrex dishes, which look a bit wierd, but works for me (and it goes with the kitsch...)
Portions are generous and the beer is good - what more could you want (well, ok, less TV's...). Ambience is either terrible or fantastic depending on whether you have a sense of humour.
Speaking as a local who has been to most places, this is one of the must try locations in Plymouth in my opinion.
