Absolutely loved this place! Really friendly and staff, especially dealing with a massive group of girls! The front man was very accomodating, and our waiters were quick with our orders! Absolutely loved the food. Definitely coming back here again!

Excellent service. Super-quick food. Amazing flavours from a menu that spoils you with irresistible options. And the 20% student discount from food and drinks is a very welcome bonus. Always reliable.More
