Jenkos managed to fit us in even though they were busy. Nice concept, you pick the food raw, plus herbs, spices and sauce then it is cooked on a hot plate for you. Recommend you follow some of their guides as your own mixtures can be interesting! Food good and you can go up as many times as you want.

very different way of eating out but very much enjoyed it. you can insure that you have just what you want with a large range of veg and meats. Will be returning, my only recommendation would be a little improvement on your cocktails.

What a hidden gem! Hidden at back of the Compasses pub, we walked through the funky cosy bar and we're greeted by the staff who were really welcoming. Hit with the smell of spices it smelt amazing! The log cabin was magical, like something I've seen in the French alps. The food was delicious, picking it all you self and... More

This place has everything. There's a cosy bar with comfortable high back chairs, an open fire, top notch ales and incredibly friendly staff to welcome you, then there is the warm log cabin to enjoy as much food as you like. You get to choose all of your own ingredients (meat, fish, veg) and have it cooked in front of... More

We had a really good night and enjoyed atmosphere/food. (that's why I gave 3 star to this place). however the following morning both of us - my husband and I felt really bad.. i couldn't back to work for a couple of days. I think that hygienic conditions are very weak at this place - sorry. May be it was... More

The incubation period (the time between eating contaminated food and the start of symptoms) for food poisoning is usually between two and five days. As you experienced symptoms within 12 hours; the source of your problem was some 1.5 to 3.5 days earlier. Also we have had no other reported cases which would be expected. Contrary to your assertion, we... More

I've been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now and I can certainly say I wasn't disappointed. The choice of fresh food and combinations you can have as part of the Mongolian option was amazing and the way it was cooked just perfect. The cooking was perfect and well organised. Service couldn't fault all staff was lovely and... More
