Finally managed to book a table and had a fantastic birthday meal . Prosseco sangria ❤️ Lush food and an amazing friendly atmosphere. Can't wait to go again soon our only dilemma was which skewer to choose they all looked so nice! Thank you

My chicken skewer with rice was fine and there was plenty of it. I personally would prefer them to take the meat off the skewer rather than having to manhandle it myself. Service was friendly-ish but a little slow

The food here lived up to it's reputation! That coupled up with such friendly service made it a lovely experience. The amount you get for a sharing platter between two is definitely more than enough! Brilliant for the money!

Yes it does, we have seen plenty of families with children in there, and we have taken our youngest son (aged 10) in there. The staff are lovely to them
