hungry friends, with whom I've been visiting this place for years, we test their generosity with our order but we have never been disappointed, the food is cooked to order and we have never had cause for complaint - it's a lively place but enjoyable

I must have been here if not once a hundred times, the food is excellent and very fast. You'll need to book for busy times or get there early, I cannot recommend enough!
