Have been here twice in four days and will visit again before we go home. Service is good and friendly, the food we ordered was brilliant, crispy duck and curried king prawns. Could not fault them, we ate everything. Would highly recommend it.

We had the buffet, food not very hot. Will not be visiting again. It is on a main road. Not very busy either.
