The food was absolutely delicious. I’m looking forward to the restrictions being lifted and sitting in, but I’m sure we’ll have another take away (or 2) before then.

Visited here as a family after looking at the menu online and the early bird offer of two courses for £16.95 seemed reasonable. This was during the “eat out to help out scheme” but when we arrived the only menu offered to us was a...set choice of two courses for £22. We asked for an alternative menu but were informed this was the only one available. We had waited a while to get a table so decided to stay, plus the other establishments around the area all had long queues. The food was superb, service a little slow but it was quite busy at the time. We also heard various customers around us querying the £22 set menu. I have waited a while to write this review and I still feel conned by this visit. To add insult to injury the staff made reference to the great discount and cheap meal we had on two occasions! As before, the food was first class but if paying the standard prices then you will have an expensive night out. £45 for three rice, three meals and drinks does not reflect any type of offer whatsoever. We visited different establishments during August and this was the only one that had inflated the prices. Based on this experience we will never return.More

Went here with a friend just to try something different from the usual American diner fare and we weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was perfect, the service was great and the food excellent. We will definitely be back and as often as possible. Highly recommended.

Me and my partner went for a friday date night and enjoyed the lovely relaxing atmosphere, amazing cocktails and fantastic food. Staff were all really friendly and made us feel very welcome, especially our server Viveik. Will definitely be visiting again soon

Had booked a table for 6.30. When we arrived at 6.20 we were told it would be a 15-20 minute wait but people in the queue had booked for 6 and still not been seated. People were queued in the restaurant and right up against...tables, terrible during the current pandemicMore

Great service, great food. Sorry to say they offer a set menu for the early bird of starter and main for £20. Main only was £17. Their early bird on their website is 2 courses for 16.95 and I presume you get a choice of...starter, main and desert. They have increased their prices by £3. Chancing their arm with the eat out to help out scheme when one of the rules is that they are to use their normal menu. Getting people to spend more without them even realising. Would make me think twice about returning.More

Booked a table for 2 for my wife's birthday, made a few amendments to the booking as family wanted to attend and they were more than accommodating and ended up with a table of 8! We were seated right away and the service was second...to none, when they found out it was my wife's birthday they bought out a free dessert and all the staff sang which was a lovely touch! One of the first places I have been recently where I wasn't felt rushed out, despite how busy they were! Will definitely be back again!!More
