“Poor food, poor service. This is not 1970's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went for a meal here for the first time. This will be the last also. The food was poor to say the least. The service was the same. The waiter only spoke to us at the end while giving us the bill, which I paid and left. Latter I found he had chared us twice for two items, the talk was i presume to stop us checking the bill too much. There are much better places to eat, this is 2013 not 1973

“excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I love this restaurant. It is authentic, the food is fabulous and varied and I have never had a bad meal here. The staff are wonderful and are very accommodating to your palette. They even taxied my coat to my house when I left it there after a visit.

“Its ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Went here on a saturday night, on first impressions it is a nice authentic looking establishment. Staff were friendly. We ordered garlic bread to start, but i was not impressed by this at all. It didn't taste very garlicky, was quite thin and dry. For main course i had risotto which was quite nice, but not the best i have ever had. Service wasn't brilliant either, had to ask for drinks a couple of times and the bill a couple of times too.
