Had an amazing meal here tonight. Steak was perfectly cooked, and Tuna steak was very tasty. The restaurant is a lovely setting on the river and very clean. The staff were very friendly particularly Asoka who served us. Would highly recommend.

Visited this restaurant several times due to its scenic location, fair price and friendly staff. Seating area was of a higher than normal standard. The food and drinks menu was quite extensive also.

Hi, your coffee is absolutely fantastic. Your meal we did not enjoy that much. However, it might have been just one of those evenings, where things do not work out. All the best. middlepark traveller
