We went here on two different nights but you definitely need to book. We saw a lot of people being told it was all booked. Chicken curry was very tasty and lamb shanks a must to try. Chocolate cheesecake to die for. Book and go

The food here is top quality. Very tasty and good selection. It gets very busy so you must book. However be prepared to wait a bit even if you do book. Highly reccomended.
