The food really is poor. A starter of Nachos inexplicably came with two shot-glasses, emblazoned with the Polish flag, that contained sour cream and chopped tomato (supposedly salsa); I'm assuming the Polish like to pass their winter nights trying to force a nacho into a shot-glass without breaking it, but we had yet to learn the technique. The mussels chowder wasn't chowder at all but an over-salted cheese sauce. I left most of my main of paella: it was homogenous, tasteless, and stale: old rice, tiny shrivelled pieces of chicken, and one piece of lime to add any flavour when an orchard of lemons would have been insufficient; the effect of eating cardboard was however somewhat alleviated by the small pieces of soggy brocolli which kept me on my toes. In other areas, the prices were reasonable, but the bathroom was dark and dank. It was 1:30pm on a Sunday afternoon, and there were only two elderly ladies present (I assume they had no local knowledge of the place either), so with such limited custom you can at least expect good service before this place closes down.

Met up with some friends who live in Sandbach and they recommended that we meet and eat at this place. Six of us altogether and all chose different starters, mains and puddings and not one single complaint or grumble among us. The food was well prepared and service was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. The bill was a bit heavy but we probably drank a fair bit as well seeing that none of us were driving but looking back at the menu I would say that dinner for two is very reasonable. The restaurant was not full but this was a mid week evening but is generally well used by locals who are pleased that the current owners have returned.

Invited to a celebration party by friends in the upstairs room and had a great night. The food was good, drinks a little expensive, the decor was very modern and the ambience excellent.

Went to Symphony with a friend and had a really good meal. The price of the food was great as you could get a Tex Mex Deal for £10 which was a Burger, Chips, 4 or 5 ribs, chicken wings and a fahita. It could easily feed two people, but all the lads who ordered it easily polished it off.

We went on a Friday night so it was really busy with too rather loud parties, but it felt good to see so many people young people enjoying themselves.

The staff were inattentive, in that I had to order our pre-dinner drinks three times, but they were polite and very friendly.

I certainly would go back again for the food, but probably on a quitier night

Had a lovely meal served by great staff. Big improvement from when the Portuguese and Roofing people who were involved. (Thank GOD Andy, Aggie and the team are back!!)
Great food and I loved the black pudding starter followed by lovely main.
Great makeover and lovely ambient atmosphere which reflects the new Symphony. We planned to go into town but were never ready to leave!!! Loved it!!
