I keep going there and continue to enjoy it. Many good dishes, including the moussaka, both meat and vegetarian. The aubergine dish is also particularly good. I like the desserts, not least the lemon cheesecake. Wines are good too.

Had a terrible meal, overpriced and rubbish food. Really disappointed. Dirty tired decor, a piece of chicken burnt on a griddle and some flavourless rice for £11! Had to wait ages too.
