This is he best Scandinavian restaurant I’ve ever visited. Small enough to feel cosy and the food quality is amazing! The Swedish meatballs is our favourite meal 😊

There are more choices than meatballs, but they were the tastiest I have had. The restaurant was comfortable and bright; the service was very quick and friendly.

First time we've visited and certainly not the last. Trendy venue run by two sisters who certainly know how to deliver a good customer experience. Food refreshingly different and probably some of the best we've eaten for a while and very reasonably priced. Thank you...More

My first time here with friends. The price was £20 and included six tasty courses, with great flavours.
