Just had a really great vegetarian meal here. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the Aubergine melted in the mouth. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with a lovely big smile. Excellent value for money.

Problem 1, a taxi minibus arrived at the block of flats only to tell us that the bill was now £55 as we had to pay for the taxi, even though a delivery charge was already included on... More
