When we last visited we liked the food and given the price that time, it was a no brainer for a Five star !!! We visited recently again. One day we checked in at 2:10 PM and found the place empty and but still open...More

We went after the cinema. The food was good, service was quick and the bill was very fair. Would go again. Ideal for pre or post cinema.

Nice to served and really good Mexican street food. Chicken Satay and Veg Rolls were very good. Can see the food being cooked behind a glass petition Well worth trying

Popped in whilst driving past and was blown away with the food, welcome and service. Food was incredibly tasty with great flavours and very tender beef. Highly recommend for anyone in the Newbury area.

Amazing atmosphere, funky tunes, cool and friendly staff, especially our waiter John, and food just incredible! Try the salt n’ pepper squid! Newbury’s best kept secret. Wish we had one of these in Pangbourne!
