Just got home from here, just the two of us went for the 8.95 for 3 courses offer. We were greeted by a lovely lady who sat us down and offered us a drink, gave us menus which were dirty and then brought our two cokes over which tasted like asda smartprice coke £2.45 each. We then ordered our starters and main, starters were below average with them tasting like yesterdays food reheated. We then recieved our mains! All I can say is it was awful, vermicelli was tasteless and the chicken in the sweet chilli chicken was chewy, certainly not the usual taste and consistency of chicken. Needless to say we had a few spoonfuls and left before even trying dessert. The couple besides us informed us their soup was awful and they left after their soup.. and the couple opposite left most of their food. Please save your money and go anywhere but here.

Came upon this cafe, advertising lunchtime specials, whilst looking for somewhere to eat in the town centre. Unpretentious place with quite a few obvious regulars dining, seemed welcoming. There was a limited lunchtime special menu 1, 2 or 3 courses. Only had a mains as starters were only soup. Well cooked and presented dish [shrimps and vegetables on egg fried rice] - enjoyable and ample for about a fiver. Drinks are always a pricey extra! Passed on the banana fritter or ice cream.
So basic but no complaints and a useful central eatery.

For value and quality of food this restaurant is excellent. Went with my wife last night and couldn't have been made more welcome. The staff are great and attentive. The variety and quality of food are second to none. Will definitely be going back , well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I never write reviews but felt I have to!
Came here with my boyfriend we ordered off set menu, our soups came out & they had a strange chemical taste. The prawn crackers where stale so we told the staff & the manager started shouting & arguing back at us.
So rude. We left!!!!
Vile man!
