“Awful”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Found this restaurant en route to Paddington. There were a couple to choose from but we were tempted by the 20 per cent off flyers they were giving out at front of restaurant-what a mistake. Bruschetta was soggy and side salad wilted and out of date. My main course even worse. Fettuccine in a cream sauce with chicken and mushroom. Most awful pasta ever had. There was no sauce and the chicken was in tiny cubes and synthetic. No seasoning, completely tasteless. Waitress did apologise but was only asked if wanted something else and still charged for meal. Even had audacity to add service charge to bill, which we refused to pay. My dad also told the guy at the front of the restaurant (handing out the flyers).who was completely dis-interested. Please don't waste your money.

“Great food, great service and free wifi”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Had an evening meal here which couldn't be faulted, there was a girl outside the restaurant giving vouchers for 20% off the food bill so we took advantage. The service was great and the food was lovely. Free wifi in the restaurant was a bonus for keeping teenagers in touch with their friends!

“Horrible mushroom soup”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Went in looking for a warm soup. host said that the chef could prepare a mushroom soup because it wasn't on the menu. the soup that came was just a clear broth with some mushrooms in it. Not to mentioned it tasted horrible and cost £5
