We were a booking for 4 on a Friday evening. The welcome was friendly and we were quickly seated. It was busy and had a good atmosphere. We decided to get a mixture of dishes so we could all try as much as possible. The service was prompt and all the food looked great. It was well cooked but for... More

Amazing tastign cuisine, super friendly staff, who want to ensure you have a great time. This is not your what you would expect from a traditional restaurant it has everything from a light bite to full "chefs special " which is not to be missed. We have had many of a fantastic night or afternoon.

Finally managed to get round to dining here, and wow did it live up to expectations. Dined here mid-Jan during "Restaurant Week" so it was very busy on a Thursday evening, but service was very good. Lovely atmosphere and vibe inside, but its all about the food. We ate from a special fixed menu, and the food was delicious. Starters... More

Friends had mentioned how good Dabbawal was and we have been meaning to go for a while. On Monday we had tickets to see The Commitments at the Theatre Royal so I looked at the Pre Theatre menu online and decided this was the ideal opportunity to give it a try. Because we were a little bit rushed we had... More
