“Slow and bad service”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I was left waiting the place was empty! My chips were burnt, I had asked for cheese on one the burgers, neither had cheese, the curry sauce was like water! The burger baps fell apart! I was on my lunch break and had orders for other staff members as well! When I got the food back to work I was horrified at how disgusting the food was! Could even eat the chips they were so burnt! £12 in the bin would be better value
