Great flavour, fresh and speedy to the table. Love the atmosphere as well. Whilst it may not look much to the passer by you'll love the foot and atmosphere at this little restaurant. Highly recommend Tia's.

We were very lucky to stumble accross this restuarant while waiting for our laundry. Initially planned a quick appetizer and dinner elsewhere. We were impressed with the starter and the friendly, helpful staff and stayed on for mains which also impressed.
