“Slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

The food was pleasant enough and excellent value for money but the service was painfully slow. It took over an hour to get our starters and we often sat for 10 mins without a drink.

“Great food but poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Every time we order a take away here, it is never ready on time. It is so frustrating to sit in a restaurant for up to 30 mins waiting on your food. The thing is, the food is good, the staff are friendly and helpful but they just can't cope with the demand. Up the game folks and your business will improve.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had a take away supper, and will definitely be back for dinner in the restaurant. We were offered a drink while we waited and were given free poppadoms which was an unexpected add on. The reception was friendly and welcoming and from our short visit recommended...
