Thrown together her drenched in oil, tasted reheated and dry despite being served in a puddle of grease, salad was the best bit but you could tell it had been left in water for about a week. What a joke

We ordered from here as we fancied a takeaway after work, I ordered the burger, 3 chicken pieces and cheesy chips. The chips tasted like they had been sat out all day, completely stale and cold.

I've ordered a meal a week ago and I'm still waiting my soft drink. The delivered man said it would just take 15 minutes.... Pizza is good, but the chips were very bad. The positive thing is that the delivery is quite fast.

Have ordered from here many times, great value and great food. Clean kitchens and friendly staff :) Order from online and delivery is very quick within 10miles There are many take aways in this street but this is by far the best.
