“The Name Got Us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

A busy place even at this time of year, but the staff were attentive, quick and most pleasant. Choice of food was good and well-prepared. The place seemed to bevery comfortable with all manner of diners in terms of group size, age, fine/casual dining.

“Great for quick dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Good service and food in a bar atmosphere. I recommend the lamb salad there. And they had a good wine selection too.

“A NO NO for Indian Palate..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

After our lunch, I was cursing every bit of the dish that was plated to us..
Was left wondering if I have ever had any good beef steak, because as per the waitress, their way was the only way one can cook a beef steak!!
Fried fish n chips was a little raw in the middle & all of it was sweet!!
