“Lacking in atmosphere and fairly average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Such a shame that an interesting looking menu was spoilt by very average cooking and raw spicing, sadly accompanied by fairly disinterested serving staff.

“Excellent food and service at great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Superb food. Very friendly staff. Food arrived quickly and was excellent. Will be visiting again soon. Plenty of choices on menu for all tastes. Thought it was very good value for money. Other family members have ordered from the take-away menu and said that was also excellent. Would recommend this restaurant.

“Lovely food not so great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

My partner & I get a takeaway from this restaurant 2-3 times a month as the food is superb and the price is reasonable.
We booked a table for two for valentines day as we love the food so much we thought we couldn't go wrong. Unfortunately we were wrong on this occasion, the staff were VERY slow and seemed overwhelmed/confused at time's despite it not being overly busy. They forgot our starter, and appeared to forget our main also, although that did appear without us needing to prompt them again. It generally took a long time to get us anything. We were in the restaurant for 3 hours.... Most of this time spent waiting. The couple on the table next to us arrived 30-35 minutes after us yet got their food & drinks long before we did...Maybe we were just unlucky.
Don't get me wrong, we will still be using this place as our regular takeaway as the food was (as usual) superb but I would not recommend a evening out here.
