Small restaurant, friendly and efficient service, not bad food. Not sure if I come back as prefer slightly different flavours. If you are nearby check it out.

Every dish had a beautiful, artful presentation. These guys clearly take a lot of pride in their food. The flavor was delicious. My partner ordered a dish with shrimp and it was incredibly fresh. My chicken was also great. Good service and good prices. I...More

We had a very good business lunch. The set menu is really good value at (I think) around £12.00 for 3 courses with decent sized portions and tasty food. Great service too. The restaurant is next to the Usher Hall so good transport links to...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
