Reviewed yesterday NEW

A group of nine of us visited over the Easter weekend for a meal. The food was very nice and the restaurant was well designed and decorated. I am surprised at some of the negative reviews I have read of this establishment, as I found the whole experience lovely and all of the staff were very polite and helpful.

The restaurant was quiet and I got served quickly. Good service. I ordered the chicken curry. It was awful. You could see an oily layer floating. The rice was sopping wet with a cm of water at the bottom of the bowl. The rice had a really overpowering taste of parsley and I think cardamon seeds. It was really unpleasant.... More

The hotel itself is good, but food was awful. Bacon for breakfast was uneatable and had to be sent back. Wasn't impressed at all.
