The staff here are always so welcoming and friendly, especially the lady with the blonde curly hair (really sorry I didn't get your name, but she knows Dulwich!!), no matter how busy they are accommodating and never make you feel rushed. We have never had a bad meal here, drinks are very fairly priced. Look forward to our next visit.

Lovely evening with friends, the restaurant is very bright and colourful, I think at night they could dim the lights to create more atmosphere. Staff very friendly and food delicious.
