This restaurant has been going close to 41 years, no matter how infrequently I come it’s always excellent. Great service and delicious healthy fresh food. Not many places stand the test of time.

Went to the Prophet last night and have been going there for nearly 30 yrs. Great value for money especially the banquette menu for a large group. The service was very attentive and friendly, so much food for a group of ten and great quality.
