Only one member of the wait staff was pleasant. The menu choices are very limited and are mostly greasy deep fried specials. The fish and chips are horribly nasty. Not recommended.

This is a good restaurant with superb staff but the atmosphere is terrible. I can't put my finger on it but there is not a good feel. The staff and food are worth it. It is well priced and diverse. A good choice for a...More
