Loved the idea of face towels in the ladies instead of tissue- smart idea for summer, very refreshing. Food is a bit pricey, but yummy. Unable to connect to the wifi. No outside food allowed policy.

We were hungry and looking at the take away opposite when we spotted this restaurant. How good did it turn out to be? Very! Very welcoming and the service was first rate. Better still, the food was good - curry is a good option

A bit of an eclectic menu but the salmon we both ordered was lovely, fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and attentive - a good option if you're in the area.
