We found the food to be very good. The service was excellent with staff attentive and good humoured. There was a large choice of dishes and portions were substantial. Would be happy to return when in the area.

“Horrible Meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

While the staff where very nice my dish of sweet and sour chicken was awful,the batter on the chicken was slimy and dreadful and the whole dish very unattractive. I did complain to the waitress whose comment was she would mention it to the chef but he had gone home
I won't be making a second visit.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Second visit in seven weeks while visiting in the area. Food is great, so much choice and excellent value for money. Drinks reasonably priced too.

Staff very pleasant and attentive.

What more can we say, we will be back.

If only this place did bed and breakfast!!! Apparently there is talk of providing this in the near future.........
