We have come back from the restaurant. We went all the way to Leicester from Milton Keynes for all 10 family members to come back to Milton Keynes in severe pain, tummy cramps, throwing up, diarrhoea, sweating abnormally and feeling absolutely horrible. This is by far the worst restaurant we have experienced and we are incredibly angry, the restaurant won’t respond to our complaint and we will be definitely reporting this! It’s the second day and we are all vomiting and have diarrhoea. All of us are stuck at home on the toilet and we are absolutely furious with this restaurant especially as they have not offered any type of apology either. I highly do not recommend this restaurant it is 100% not worth these consequences.

Would recommend getting a 50 prawn platter (a Tuesday deal only) - definitely worth it for £30! Comes with rice, chips or both, and also the trio of sauces. The prawns were cooked just right with great flavour, and the chips and rice were a great accompaniment. The staff were friendly and helpful in taking our order and when we asked about the Tuesday deal. They offered gloves so we didn't get our hands dirty when peeling the prawns and also came by regularly to check on us during the meal.

The only slight negative is on one of our platters there wasn't 50 prawns, there was 46. We understood that it must be difficult to count the exact amount of prawns when serving up a platter so did not raise it with the wait staff at the time. This did not affect our overall experience of the restaurant though as we were all so full anyway! Would recommend this place if you are a seafood fan.

Grilled to perfection they claim yet the prawns were dripping in oil. Grilled African baby chicken... you guessed it, dripping in oil. You ask the waiter why it’s fried... he gets his boss onto you who ‘assures’ you it’s grilled, but cannot explain why it’s dripping in oil! Bland, oily and overpriced. Shame really, as I travelled 80miles for this place, waste of a journey, money & time. My local chippy would have been a healthier option than this...

Good food , service not so good . Does what it says on the box . I do feel that it is quite expensive though . I think better to go in a big group to share out the bill .
