Despite the name not really fitting the place (Mess Hall?) and it being a bit hipsterish, we had an awesome meal during our stay in Brunswick. Really good curry and funky environs, definitely worth a stop for dinner.

With a name like 'mess hall' I was totally surprised by the atmosphere and wasn't at all what I expected! Amazing Asian inspired cuisine with an extensive beer and cocktail list (some they light on fire!) Delicious and defiantly bringing people back!!

This place was ok. It was a little bit busy however the wait was bearable. The sangria tasted like it was made of disgustibgly cheap red wine and sugar was added to make it taste better (it didnt), the food was ok though.
