Had a great meal with friends. Good food and not overpriced. Very good service. Unusual setting in an old school house but with a warm friendly welcome. I would defiantly go back.

After a friends recommendation we decided to visit this place with some friends of ours, On the outside it doesn't look much, just your average building that doesn't give too much away.

We visited this restaurant recently with our daughter. We hadn't booked and the restaurant was busy, but they showed us upstairs. One negative point was the stair carpet which looked filthy, I woudl replace it soon as it doesn't do your restaurant justice.

The food had good flavor with decent portion size at an average price for the area. The staff was helpful but service was less than expected.

I went hee with a group of friends on a recommendation, and I was not disappointed. Met by friendly staff and a good atmosphere in an old converted school. What else!. Service was good and all food was of high standard. I tried Haldi chicken which was described as medium, but I needed a third Kingfisher to cool down. However... More
