The food is very good but 2 let down in this place it’s so noisy to hear my client talk. Also the waiting staff are not friendly. Except for the host that show us our table.

Long waits between everything, overcrowded restaurat with tables so close together the diners next to me knocked our cutlery on the floor, and average food when it arrived. Not much else I can say. Won't be going back.

We called in here for lunch, although very busy, the staff were great and the food was very tasty. I'm not usually a fan of these restaurants but this one might just have changed my mind!
