We go loads here and we love how you get bread salad and dips.Before your meal. Go for the Chefs specials with everything, There's loads of food for 4 not 2 people.. Don't worry if you run out of dip they will give you more.....More

The service was really good. Not only did we get good advice about not ordering too much rice, but a high chair was provided before we asked, and the children all got lollipops :-) Oh, and the food was lovely.
