i had never been to international starters before but me and my sister thought we would give it a try. i never really like trying new things because i am SUCH a fussy eater but i loved everything i was served. The waitress i have looked lovely and i had brilliant service-i would 100% go back just for that. The interior is just right for the type of restaurant as you cant really go with a theme as there is so main foods from all over the world served so i feel the interior is grand and wouldn't change a thing.
What i would also like to point out is that the manager turned people away at the door as they were to busy and didn't want to give the customers they already had a substandard service which i feel is BRILLIANT management and wish other restaurants would do the same.

I have been back to IS quite a few times the food is lovely and portion sizes are good. Prefer going in a group rather than just 2 of us as it makes for a better experience. The interior is quite bland but when the place is busy it has a great atmosphere. Wish they did a dessert menu based on their IS theme.

Service good. Interior bland. Menu selection good. Sharing plates - average two per person is a good size and well reflected in fair price. Plenty vegetarian/pescetarian choice. However, someone has a thing for coriander! It's in everything! The chef must have a deal on it! Unfortunately an hour later I'm still trying to over-ride the taste! Also, be open and ask them to do something a about the music choice! The poor staff have been stuck in the 90s long enough! Also service wasn't included! I've just realised and feel slightly guilty!

The right mix of dishes and portion sizes.
Great for large groups and sharing all your dishes. Relaxed atmosphere.

Concept is great, food was average.

The Ribs were awful though, got about 1 bite of meat off them. They were overcooked, dry and pretty disgusting.

The mini burgers were very tasty.

Staff were very friendly and the setting is beautiful.

I would say it is a bit pricey for what you get.
