I remember when they started wow was it then Now it's average. Wow factor is gone. Ok not bad but price quality it's overstated. Atmosphere good. People behind the bar very nice. Just please serve for the price better quality

Had escargots soup and fried kibbeling as a quick takeaway. Absolutely loved it. Full of flavour and savoured every bite. Also a great concept of ordering a variety of dishes to share out with friends and family.
