Food is always great, hot and fresh. Service is friendly and it is a steal of a meal with a taste card too.

Always a test of a restaurant when the table of nine are busy chatting and all order something different! But this well recommended restaurant coped really well and the food was excellent all with the staff always doing their best to make the evening work for us.

This is a small restaurant which is absolutely amazing. The food is great with service friendly and efficient. All the food seems freshly cooked but the wait is not too long. Highly recommend. Down side is the tables are quite small to fit all those delicious dishes. That is why it got four and not five stars.

What a funny, dinky, strange, great little restaurant! Shoehorned into what was the front room of a semi-detached house just South of the wonders of exotic Elmers End Roundabout, it seats 24 people and doesn't feel crowded. The decor is astonishing, full of trouvailles and bric-a-brac and totally charming in its accidental harmony. Only open in the evenings ( but... More

My friend and I visited this place on 14th Feb (Valentine's Day). We came here for a nice meal as opposed to a romantic night out - he is my friend and not my partner. I had phoned the restaurant beforehand and was pleased to find out that we could order from the 'A la Carte' menu and were not... More
