“Awful Take-away”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Ordered a take-a-way for delivery, for tea on a weeknight. Firstly when placing the order the lady on the phone did not even take my address, luckily she did remember to take my phone number so she could ring back and ask for it!!

The food arrived lukewarm, soggy from the grease and not at all appealing, we had one mixed kebab, The pitta bread was hard in the middle, the meat very dry and dehydrated did not look or smell appealing and was very swiftly pushed to oneside. the salad which is included with the special kebab was NOT included in the kebab, however if it was the same salad that came with my partners burger then sliced cabbage, onions and a little iceburg lettuce do NOT count as a salad!

Partners burger was greasy, bun was slightly hard and it was quickly tossed to oneside. All in all not a very sustaining meal, should have just made our own...also the coleslaw is very plastic in taste and texture :(

“Good but overpriced”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Had a table for two on a Sunday night. The food was ok. As Whitehaven standards go this was good due to lack of competition. The meal was overpriced however I believe this is again due to lack of competition and was in the normal price bracket for Whitehaven. The service was very good with the correct level of attention. Overall I would rate this as a good restaurant for Whitehaven however if you're used to eating out in a major city you could be disappointed.

“Make the portions smaller!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is a great looking restaurant, making the most of its location in a former Bank. Service was good, friendly attentive and relaxed, but we went on a quiet weekday night. The food was good but not excellent a good family style restaurant rather than somewhere you would go for a special meal. My only criticism is the portion sizes which are far too generous. We like many other diners took home a large doggy bag!
