Spent the day at the Thai street food course and was not disappointed. The chef was very professional and her instructions were spot on. This really is a fantastic training facility. Will certainly return for a different course.

Popped in for breakfast, very popular place. Excellent choice, breakfast was a good size but not too much, very good quality and price. Lunch menu looked very good too and the take away custom was constant.

Between ourselves and Vanessa we made a delicious Mexican feast that we enjoyed with a glass of wine at the end if the class, with enough to take home for another meal. The rest of... More

We were given a voucher as a present for the 'steak night' and were unable to get a date for about 3 months and as it is extremely popular. I'm not surprised!, it was a brilliant night and the food was exceptional. Excellent demo by Andy on how to cook the perfect steak, and sauces, beautiful starters cooked by Vanessa,... More
