We've eaten here twice now with our toddler and have no complaints. The food is good value for money, portion sizes are generous and they have a large variety on the menu. Something for everyone and very tasty.

Its not a posh place but very clean and tidy. The service is good and usually quick. I think its probably used by workers and students. The food is good and very reasonably priced. Worth a visit.
