“Good food, attentive service”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

I used to eat here ages ago and was a bit wary after reading the reviews on here. I am glad I gave it another try.

I went with a fussy friend who ordered two things not on the menu and it was no problem for them. All the food was good, freshly made with quality ingredients and tasty.

The service was attentive but not intrusive and we would have stayed longer but a crowd turned up who where a bit noisy. Not their fault about that though.

So all things considered it was good, and I would happily go back. And I am glad that it is as good as it ever was, it pays not to listen to everyone!

“Bland Food & Wine Pricey”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Warm welcome by staff then it went downhill. Food was bland and in need of spices. Restaurant quiet for a week day evening. Wine list needs improving as the red was poor. Beeter Indian options in Potters Bar. First and last time.

“Good food”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

2 of us dinned here. The food was tasty and of high quality. It was slightly more expensive than average, but so was the food. Service was excellent. Worth a visit.

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

I went with my friend and we had really nice food and polite service. Although there was a really noisy party on the side but we never felt disturbed, rushed or ignored. I would definitely everyone come here when you have the chance, it is really good!!

“Awful”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The whole evening was awful! The food was ok, the wine horrible & the service was extremely bad!! We will NEVER return, felt it was an amazing waste of money & have never had such bad service EVER! If anyone tries this restaurant, I wish you luck & better food & service than we had!! No wonder it was so quiet!!!

Hello Michelle,

Firstly, I would like to apologise for your experience. We take customer service and satisfaction very seriously, and I whole heartedly apologise for your experience.

We are under new management and have currently gone through renovations with all new staff. Including a new specialist chef.

I'd like to thank you for leaving your feedback, we can't improve any of our services if we don't know about the issues you are experiencing. We pride ourselves in providing a service above and beyond any customer expectations. I am also sorry you didn't feel as though you could not complain on the night, as it would have been far easier for us to resolve any issues you may have had.

We hope for the opportunity to serve you again to give us a chance to show you how good we can be.

Thank you for your review and continuous support.
