After eating at another branch of this chain and thinking how poor it was, I’m kicking myself that I tried them again. Visited on a Monday night and tried the midweek offer. First off, waited to be seated for what seemed like a very long while for a restaurant that only had 3 other tables in use when we arrived.... More

Just got home from here with my partner and daughter. The restaurant was empty apart from one other couple, which I thought was a good thing. Turns out there's probably a good reason it was empty. Ordered my partner and I two drinks, both Tango, both tastes like dirty water. Ordered our food, I had the meatballs. From the attached... More

Staff are experts in avoiding eye contact. Restaurant was almost empty but the waiter managed to avoid us for ages, placed order which he promptly forgot to place himself and only realised his mistake when others had received their food and we hadn't, finally got the food which was dreadful. I've never had chicken and mushroom pasta with so little... More

My son and grand-daughter took me out for lunch to celebrate my birthday. Restaurant was pretty quiet as it was just past noon. Food arrived and sadly my meal was luke warm. Just asked the waiter to re-heat it in the microwave as it wasn't a problem for me. food returned piping hot and was delicious. Very enjoyable meal.

Visited for a family birthday. Food lovely. Service very efficient and the staff were really nice and accommodating. They even bought the cake over with candles on I'd provided earlier and played happy birthday. Really nice experience and I thought £160 for 9 people food and drinks starters and desserts as well was brilliant value. Thank you to the staff

So disappointed, went there with my family to enjoy our evening, to start the restaurant floor was completely dirty, I've never seen so many mosquitos inside a restaurant like this one. The worse part was the service, clearly they're trying to save on wages, they had one manage and one waiter to look after 17 tables ( I've counted ),... More

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant the staff were welcoming, they seated us immediately and provided us with a menu. The food me & my partner ordered was delicious, the lunch menu has a great range! I would strongly recommend anyone coming here to try there pizzas, bolognese, and crispy chicken strips!!!

If you've been to one, you've been to all of them! Food was good, nice atmosphere, lovely and cool with the A/C on! Only grumble is that there seemed to be more than a few flies knocking about!

Its a year less 2 days since my last visit. This time it was a Saturday evening. I expected it to be busy but it was about two thirds full. Only had to wait a minute to be seated - a warm welcome. Then I sat for 20 minutes trying to catch someone's eye so I could order. Then I... More
