Quite good food, been three times. The set meals are especially good value and the student discount is useful. Found some hairs in my most recent meal which I was not impressed with. Other that it is worth going to.

Great food depending on when you get it, some days it's amazing some days it's a disappointment. Ordered tonight and after an hour of waiting I decided to call to ask about our food. Before I even finished my question the lady on the other end interrupted and said 'it's on it's way' without even asking who I was. It... More

As the photos below show, I found a piece of real chicken within the mock chicken dish I had ordered. When I rang to complain I was inadvertently called a liar, and told there was no way there was real meat in my dish. After ten minutes of trying to get through to the woman I hung up feeling frustrated.... More

My first impression was that the place was not clean as it should be. The welcoming area was not clean and tidy and who knows what is going on in the kitchen. However the food was very good and very cheap. Staff was friendly and quite helpful. Needs improvements to attract customers.

I have used this take away a few times and the food is always fresh and lovely. Both a collection and delivery services and a very extensive menu.

When I was here the staff was not very friendly and seemed kind of annoyed when asking for some information about the dishes. The place is a just take away place where I was wondering why they did not give me a fork and paper towels when I got my food. I had to run back to get it. I... More

I have been here a number of times now and have always been served by the same person. Who has always been rude, unfriendly and standoffish. It is a shame as the food quality is good. But the service is terrible.

Had ordered three main dishes plus a half & half (chips & rice) I think this half & half is a great idea. The food had very colourful garniture,which... More
