This place is awsome. They only have one standard and it is tops. The ambience is great. The food is to die for. Anyone that leaves hungry and not satisfed would never be pleased. Great range of top quality food served hot as it should be. But friday to Saturday you must book.

It was wonderful, the food was great. The only down side was you need to order in the counter for food and dessert but cannot include the drinks. All drinks should be ordered and pay in the bar. They should introduce that you can order both in one counter. Other than that all was good and service was great

The staff were fabulous with our multiple requests and no errors were made. A special mention for Dee, who went out of her way to help us. Meals were lovely. Dining area was noisy and difficult to hear people unless they were right next to you, which is why I give 4 instead of 5.

Hi Peter B. Thanks for your comments and taking the time to furnishing a review. We do just under 100 chicken Kievs every week.These are made by a specialist supplier using the freshest ingredients. Cooking time takes over 30 minutes as they are sealed then baked in a time controlled oven. Now I could bang on about other issues, but... More

A nice location for a local or someone on the way through. We had two Parma's and 2 kids meals with a soft drink each...price was 91 bucks and because we paid on credit we were still slugged with a 1.5% fee (visa). Meals were generous sizes which was good...however Parma's came with salad (not generous) and chips (generous but... More
