This wouldn't appeal to me 100% personally not faulting it but maybe it appeals to a different clientelle. In terms of taste the stake was 10/10 service 10/10 interior 10/10 in terms of price and portions I wouldn't give 10/10 but maybe they are aiming at a different market

Delicious food. Excellent service. Friendly staff. Beautiful building. Very clean and well maintained. Good location near city centre, pubs, clubs and attractions close by. Early bird deals available so always good to call ahead. Prices are fair for what you get. Have eaten here for a romantic evening for two, meeting friends and family occasions, all of which this restaurant... More

Cosy with good food, atmosphere ok. Good friendly service. Very busy which is a good sign but lacks some atmosphere as a consequence.

We visited for lunch, just 2 mains and some sparkling water. We both opted for Thai green curry, one Prawn, one chicken. Well, they just got it so wrong. Thai food is fresh, veg is al dente, bright, fragrant and the dish usually has some lemongrass and maybe some Thai basil. No. Even the rice was in short supply. It... More
