Just had a really great vegetarian meal here. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the Aubergine melted in the mouth. Our waiter was friendly and helpful with a lovely big smile. Excellent value for money.

Had a take away regardless of some reviews, I'm very fussy esp when I'm away from home, I found the food to be very nice, the ribs need a nice thick sauce but the char Sui curry and the chicken wings were lovley
