Ordered from here as we wanted a nice meal for a birthday as we normally go out. We ordered 3 x 2 course meals and we all loved it. When the delivery came in small polystyrene tubs i thought we had made a mistake, and...the portions also looked small. When it was out on a plate the portion sizes were just right and the food was gorgeous. It is clearly a restaurant making the most of lockdown and trying to survive this pandemic, which it is doing very well. We will definitely be back.More

Thank you see you again

Firstly the food was sensational eventually, the quality apparent but secondly it was that cold when it arrived it would have been easier to just send the ingredients over for us to cook at home. I appreciate this is a problem all restaurants have in...the current situation however this takeaway is probably one of the most expensive in the area so although I’m happy to pay for the quality they offer more needs to be done at the prices charged to get the meal delivered in a better state. I’m also really disappointed that for some reason on a takeaway a service charged is applicable ?More

We had a take out from here last night and the food was lovely. There is also discount for take out food at the minute. We got a cold platter to share and a couple of main meals and everything we had was beautiful. Will...be visiting here when it reopens as a restaurant.More

Called in this evening on a whim with my partner for a quick tea, having noticed the restaurant a few days earlier. Ambiance and decor are very pleasant, and our waiter was very attentive and friendly, without being overly fussy. Unfortunately I didn't take his...name but he was terrific. He was working alone on the front of house and managed it effortlessly. He recommended dishes and a 2 course offer that was available to us. He even asked us how much of a break we'd like between courses which was a simple, but nice touch. The food itself was superb. Both my partner and I agreed, and the freshly made baclava as desert was fabulous. I'd highly recommend that, but make sure to save enough room!!!! The price is about average for the food individually, but with the 2 course deal on offer this evening, it was incredibly cheap considering the standard of the food. Will certainly be visiting again. If the management do read this review, thank you for having us.More
