Massive portions and reasonably priced with a wide choice of menu options. Service is a little slow, but the place is very big and busy, so it's expected.

Sat down at a table and ordered food only to be told that we hadn't ordered enough food to warrant a table. Disgusting. If there's a minimum spend on a table they should have it on the sign. Never experienced anything like it and the manager was to coward to even talk to us directly.

The door host was smiley and really helpful by letting us know about the wait for a table. The service (we had a youngish man with tattoos and a women who looks... More

Have been to this restaurant many times over the last 16 years but I was very disappointed with my last visit. The entertainment and service is still good but the quality of the food has really gone down hill. The chicken wings we had for starters were tasteless and the garlic dip was obviously watered down. I had a cheese... More
