I have to say the excuse of "we're so busy" doesnt warrant poor quality food. I was so disappointed, to take my children and friends to a restaurant where we've previously had good food, to be served rubbish was embarrassing. Aside from 2 dishes from...More

The staff were lovely, attentive and didn’t rush us. The food authentic and flavoursome, we had the banquet, whilst it’s was good value it’s was far too much food. We would recommend this restaurant to others. Overall a very pleasant experience.

I’m not one to usually write a review, however I feel I owe it to the people of Manchester, the UK and my intestines to share my experience this week. We ordered the set vegetarian meal for two and a couple of drinks each. There...More

Came here with family. Service was nonexistent and being busy on Saturday can’t be an excuse.. The food was also sweet which was unexpected. We left after starters and went elsewhere for main course.”

So glad we came here! Food was super we loved it, service excellent! It was busy when we arrived but our wait wasn’t long, so be prepared to wait for a table on a busy night. Will definitely visit again - soon hopefully.

I believe they would deal well with a group booking-theyre efficient and the place is roomy-only problem is the entrance isnt that obvious.
