Based upon recommendations from the Internet we visited this restaurant for the Chef's Tasting Menu. The food and service were excellent (thanks to Kevin). It was a real experience - and we liked being able to pick and choose small dishes to experience the whole menu (and being able to ask for a larger portion of anything we liked). In... More

If you like hot spicy food and small portions, then this is the restaurant for you. It is a shame that they have changed their menu because we have been coming here for five years and it used to be our favourite restaurant in the Batutta Gate hotel, not any more. What a shame. I hope that they will re-think... More
