At 9.30 I rang to see where my order was, the lady that answered the phone was... More

Myself and my husband had a meal in this restaurant last night, and it was the nicest meal I have ever tasted. Fresh food, prompt service and very friendly staff who were willing to chat, ask if everything was ok, and gave us a card to fill out at the end of the visit. We never felt rushed here. Dont...

I've had takeaway, and I've sat in twice and each time has been as delicious as the last. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The early bird lunch menu is beyond affordable at just €5 per person. One thing to be aware of if you like to have alcohol with your meal, they don't seem to serve it. I've... More

Visited with family. The service was appalling, calling what was eventually served up food would be a breach of the trade fare descriptions act. Apart from being served inedible food the bill was an insult to human intelligence. Absolute Con of a joint an will certainly not be going back,

Tried out the new Shalimar Restaurant yesterday with the family. Sunday Lunch at €10.99 for 2 courses was great value. Food lovely and the man who attended us was very pleasant. Knocked off one rating circle as thought the table cloth should have been changed or covered but it did not interfere with our enjoyment of the food. Lovely lunch.
