Have eaten here a couple of times and if you like chicken you'll probably be happy here. Basic food - chicken can be a little dry, but plenty of sauces if you want to address that.

It was one of my favourite restaurants. A notice of closure appeared on the door - no details. Website and Facebook page still active. Phone number connects to an American ? answering service. Emails are unanswered. All quite mysterious.

Great food but very expensive. Honey wings are a bit sickening. Portions are huge so you don't need a starter and main each. Maybe share a starter. Friendly staff too and in a good location

The staff are very friendly & efficient. The food is OK, obviously mainly chicken done in various ways. However it is expensive for what you get, deep fried chicken and chips is nearly €20..... If you want a quick, tasty bite it's good but expensive!

The food was very enjoyable but the staff's people skills were quite underwhelming and didn't make for a nice eating environment. Would go back for the food but would not go back for the staff.
