“Super quality takeaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Having recently moved to the area I was blown away by the amount of positive recommendations this place had on Streetlife forums so decided to give it a try. We have had takeaway delivered from here twice now and both times it was great. The food arrived piping hot and well packaged. It was clearly very freshly cooked and the dishes that were meant to be crispy were still crispy. Very impressed at the high quality meat used (especially the chicken breast). The food was truly delicious (a personal favourite is the smoked chicken starter and the crispy shredded beef). Delivery was perfectly on time.
Only negative was that it took AGES to get through on the single ordering phone line, I think they need additional lines or a service that automatically puts you on hold and tells you approx wait time as this was super frustrating!!

“Lovely staff, ok food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We very often will have a set menu when trying somewhere new as we did here. What we found was the portion sizes were very generous, to the point that we couldn't quite finish everything. However the quality of each course was a bit off unfortunately, some of the textures were a strange, there was a odd floury taste to one of the dishes and the duck for example was dry. That being said most of the dishes were tasty and what made it an enjoyable meal was the relaxed and very friendly staff. The costs were very reasonable too.
So for a date night or a new regular restaurant this would be great, you could see they treated their regulars well, but for a special meal out perhaps elsewhere might be better.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Very friendly and attentive staff. Generous portions, tasty food. Prob not the sort of place if go for a quiet table for two but great for a family meal or group occasion. Spacious but brightly decorated giving a lively homely atmosphere.

“Good but not Great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Having just moved to the area and having read the reviews I was hoping for more.

This is a nice restaurant and the food is of decent quality with very big portions but unfortunately they use MSG which if you ask they will not use.

As the portions were so big we had the mixed starter then the duck and were very full indeed!

The waiting staff and owner are very nice and make you feel very welcome.
