At a first glance this restaurant is tastefully decorated and nothing special with nice tables and comfortable chairs and a view out over Hereford Street, BUT, upon tasting my Lamb Rack dinner off the newly created menu, I was in love!!!!! I had this meal twice in a row and we never left the hotel to venture for any other... More

The steak, salad, fries and sauce were all excellent. The location is also handy for city workers. The service was average.

Checked into the hotel after a very long day traveling and looked forward to a good meal. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in our meal. The restaurant is very noisy, tables are cafeteria like style, no ambience at all. Plastic molded chairs, felt like I was in a lunch room at school. The pumpkin soup was tasteless, the lamb kofta (kebabs)... More

Had dinner in the hotel on arrival. Was a bit confusing on arrival at the restaurant as we were told we couldn't book until 8pm even though restaurant had plenty of room, so had a drink in the bar. At 7.45 pm they took us through. The meal definitely made up for the confusion, was very nice. Both the chicken... More

It was not up to standard last time I wrote and unfortunately nothing has changed. Staff still kind and trying to make a good job of waiting. Meal was average and when we wanted coffee the machine was already turned off so we did not get one. A lovely restaurant and sad to see that it is not meeting the... More

It's rare when you see the service in a restaurant is good but the food is just terrible. Wine was good :-) The worst part was the dessert. Frozen and inedible.
