Finally visited this recently having wanted to go since it opened! The food was well cooked and the flavours were great. The thing that really stood out though was the service. The staff were attentive without being over bearing and really made the effort to ensure we enjoyed our meal. Will definitely be back!

We visited the restaurant as part of a party of 13 after recommendations and where unfortunately disappointed. The staff did not seem to be organised for such a large group (although booked and paid deposit well in advance) and had trouble with our orders.

Some of the food arrived cold and some not at all and not served together so some where waiting for a long time whilst others ate.

A small cake was ordered for celebrating the birthday with a candle but we got a very expensive large cake.

When the bill arrived it was not itemised and when queried we where told sorry but we haven't got that facility yet which was very strange.

Overall we came away disappointed with the experience despite going with high hopes raised by others and felt a little lost in translation at times.

We had a wonderful Christmas party here for over 30 people. We had a few dietry requests, as you would expect with a large party, and, with a smile, they catered for our every whim!
Wonderful service, and outstanding food.
I really can't rave about their food and personal service enough.

Passed this restaurant quite a few times - always seemed empty on a weekday, which didn't quite marry up with the high rating on TripAdvisor, so I was curious to try it out for myself.

A friendly welcome awaited. We ordered the house red - it was surprisingly good. My friend ordered what a 3-dish combination for £12.95 - amazing value given how good it tasted. I ordered the lamb xacuti - a fragrant curry, which although spicy, was not too hot/overpowering.

The food itself was enough to make me want to come back; however we also got free drinks on the house. All in all a very satisfying evening.
