Food is always cooked to perfection, never had any complaints. The Superfood Salad is a must try, as I am not fond of salads myself, I feel very proud to say i really enjoy this one! Quite expensive, but if your looking for high quality and quirky food, this is your spot.

I wanted to hold a party in my house for family and friends to celebrate a graduation and an engagement and decided to ask the Lovely Food Company to cater it, I have to say that I was delighted with the entire package!

The chicken wings to start were crispy, spicy and served with a delicious dip. The king prawns to start were also tasty. For mains we enjoyed... More

I brought my Mum here for dinner a week ago to celebrate her birthday as it's a local and easy spot for us in December, when the city centre is really busy. I'd never eaten dinner here before, only ever lunch. We were not disappointed. We ate from the early bird menu and each had 3 courses - all of... More

Very simple, boring breakfast. You could do it yourself with your eyes closed and it would likely be better executed. Ive been a few times to both branches I can only presume the people who love this place have never been anywhere else or are dullards.

This is a small cafe restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed with a uncomplicated tasty lunch menu. Tiger prawn salad and the grilled halomui sandwich reccomended.
