The food was good and as a whole the service was good. I was appalled at the service we received from one of the waitresses as we were paying with a voucher she came running over and announced very loudly to which the whole restaurant could here "as your are paying with a voucher, you cannot have this." I understand... More

We booked for a 5:30pm arrive. Not many in. We left, over full, around 8:15, packed. We opted for the £28 banquet & asked for "rests" to be built in to our service. I was on their highly tasty tap water as nominated chauffeur! Too much food, should we have asked for a banquet for 3 between us?Everything was tasty,... More

I have eaten here a few times, so I thought that it was time to give a review. This is a lovely restaurant which is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or as a group. Nice atmosphere. The food has always been delicious. I would recommend.

My partner booked and ordered the lobster ( needs booking ahead of attending). Had a lovely meal lobster ever so slightly overcooked. We joined in with other celebrations of a wedding anniversary and 81st birthday but alas my 50th was overlooked, quite disappointed as this was my one and only celebration so word of warning if you are celebrating something...

Ordered a takeaway and all was good until we got to the chicken curry. But it looked like we received the chicken in sweet and sour sauce instead. The food was lovely and the incorrectly made meal was okay to say it's not what we ordered. Third time we have had a takeaway from here and would go back again!

Went here Saturday night with my girlfriend... first time I've been. The staff didn't put a foot wrong all night. Polite, welcoming, attentive (but not in your face) and very helpful. The restaurant was packed and buzzing but service was still very quick. Not normally a massive fan of oriental cuisine but the food was delicious and we had a... More
