Great food, A waiter named Iqbal served us and the service was excellent. I would rate it one of the best restaurants in the U.K.

Great T bone although the salad option has been somewhat reduced over this year. There is the option of a porterhouse steak which I have yet to try. The desert is always good from healthy sorbet all the way to indulgent chocolate options. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant for the high standard of food and good service - efficient and...

Good food but bring a wallet/purse full of money cause it ain't cheap. Portions have gotten smaller over the years but overall good food and I would not hesitate in going back.

I had a party of 6, and I'm afraid I found the whole experience very disappointing. It started off promising, as the humus cold starter was excellent, but the chicken sharing Blätter was over priced and was not made for sharing as the portions were not great. The food was of not of that standard that the prices were set.... More

Nice place to eat, I love their coleslaw I know so random but if you go there do try it. I really like their starts very much. Regular prices but always have to wait for 20 minutes to get a table.

We were dissapointed at the... More

I've been to this place a few times and the food is decent, however this time I went the mocktails we ordered were rubbish and my friends chicken steak had a sauce which was way too spicy. She couldn't even complain because no one came around to ask if everything was OK.
