Staff are really attentive and there are a lot of options for vegetarians. Food was amazing with huge portions of well presented, delicately spiced dishes and served with fabulous cocktails. A fantastic discovery and can’t wait to return.

Meals are abit over priced, service was average, asked for a jug of water with our meal and the lady went away and never came back with the water, meal wasn't very nice as well. Portions are quite big. Won't be visiting again.

Visited without a reservation, space available, not massively busy but enough to have a great atmosphere! Food was excellent, freshly cooked and hot! Sweet potato fries were the nicest I've tasted in a while! I'd recommend the delicious nachos and the Canadian burger with maple...More
