“Not bad”
Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Thought I'd give the seafood menu a shot seeing as they had a 30 per-cent discount on the seafood. I cant remember exactly which I ordered, but it sounded very nice.

It would have been nice to have revieved the actual 30 per-cent discount on my meal too, but I didn't really want to question this upon receipt of our bill.

It was very flavoursome, but I'm a "fence-sitter" when it comes to seafood & found it a bit too much flavoursome. It was just warm when it reached my table, but I understand seafood & veg can go from hot to tepid very quick. It has put me off trying seafood in any restaurant, but if u do like seafood, I'd recommend giving it a whirl. It just wasnt my cup of tea. I did end up with a bad belly the next day, but seafood can be dodgy the best of times.

Customer service wasn't as friendly once u were in the restaurant, but it wasn't "bad". The curly-haired, tanned dude on the front was always lovely to speak to & not pushy with us.

“Not one to miss”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Visited this restaurant for the first time this year, The staff are very friendly and extremely hard working. The first night we visited, the food was very good and good value for money. The second time we visited, I was a little disappointed with the quality of the food in the main course. The pork kebab was very tough and I couldn't even cut some of the pieces with my knife, ended up leaving most of my main course. That said, I believe it was simply a one off bad night for the chef, as most people I spoke to were always singing the praises of the restaurant. Would I go back again? Yes
