The food was delicious. Friendly staff and efficient. We are here 9.50 on a Wednesday evening, everywhere else was closed. I consider we had a very lucky find. If I lived close by I would definitely come regularly Thank you.

We came here on a Saturday night (7.30pm) and they had the table we'd booked all ready. We were served relatively quickly and ordered poppadoms, which again cam e quickly, but when we asked for extra dips, we were told they'd get them straight away,...More
