Good food. Nice ambience. Goan fish curry needs a revisit from the chef. Other food items were good.

Food is good, well presented by polite staff, this is a very popular bar with entertainment most nights. It's central in location & it's where a lot of people meet up.

We ate there during the final of the cricket twenty20 worldcup. The staff was super friendly, they moved the table for us to watch the match. The food was delicious. I recommend this place !!

Another great place to eat and drink. There is always a lively atmosphere in BB and it is always packed to standing room only. The restaurant side doesn't appear to be too busy though. It is difficult when there are so many other fine eateries nearby but the one meal I did have here was excellent.

Excellent place to visit for a drink - not sure about the food as I have not eaten here. Good atmosphere,with background music. Both staff and other customers are chatty and friendly. Reasonably priced drinks, open late until about 01.00hrs Well worth a visit.

This bar warms up late however great place to mingle, drink great value spirits and enjoy good music. On a friday night a British comedian performs and the bar is busier earlier due to his performance. Good service and staff
