Went to Neil Diamond tribute act and had an incredible time. The food was excellent (I had the Vegan menu), the atmosphere was great, the staff were really kind and the entertainment was just fantastic. A great night all round.

Drive past every day on my way to work always thinking we should have a meal here some time, why did I leave it so long? Amazing food, great service and lovely surroundings . Well worth a visit.

Entrance unclear. Not like photo at all. Appearance suggest big refurbishment in progress. Very good Chinese food. Chinese families dining there which endorses our opinion. Pleasant staff but maybe just a bit too busy for the number on duty.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. I'm very sorry that the event night was not to your expectation. Being a live band there would always be a need to have sound checks and the band had announced to the restaurant before...More
