Myself and two old friends have being meeting here for a long time now. The previous two occasions have been disappointing. The food was well below the restaurant's normal standards. Whether we return will have to be seen.

It was alright but we certainly haven't been back. It was a recommendation but the food was only average, the service & atmosphere were ok but there wasn't anything that stood out as noteworthy.

Have eaten there in person and used their take-away service a few times. The food is consistently good standard and the service and prices very reasonable. There may be better places in tiown but if you don't want to travel then this is a good alternative.
