The space is a little cramped, and one always feels like you're squeezed in. The service is a little on the slow side but friendly nontheless. The staff seem like they have fun working there. The ribs are really good, and so are their pasta dishes, but rather give the risotto a skip.

In one word, "Fantastic" ! Service, Food, Atmosphere, Value.......

I do not have one bad thing to say about this unique restuarant. The food was to die for, the atmosphere unique and the prices very reasonable. A definite must see for all.

But beware, make sure you have a booking else you might be waiting for a while as the restaurant is very small.

Looking for somewhere fun to go with friends - this is the place. You would need to book in advance. The restaurant's tables are all quiet close together and the music is quite loud which adds to the fun and funky atmosphere. Staff are very efficient and the menu choice is great.
The food was very good too. Everyone in our party ordered a different dish and everyone not their meal.
Not child friendly at all due to all the quirky decor everywhere.

Enjoyed a great night out here with a brilliant atmoshphere and was sat on the swings by the door and it was fantastic vibe with great music, individual team of misfits waiting tables. We also enjoyed have Roger Taylor of Queen fame swinging us in our seats on his way out of the restaurant. The food is OK but if you want a great night out with friends this is the place to go.

Been here 3 times. Ribs are the only thing that I remember being good about this place. Yes. Interesting venue, but waiters are a bit familiar and too laid back. I'm chilled, but not your "sister". Kitchen staff changing and washing in the bathroom are not my scene. Pity. Sounds good on paper, but the restaurant is also on a busy intersection, so I would need loads of enticing to go back.
