We were here almost a year ago and the food was great. Tonight I'm left wondering have they changed chefs. The Calamari was terrible, boiled and luke warm zero taste and it was likely eating chewy rubber. . Zero effort was made with the plating...More

We originally went looking for a feed of Indian, but instead settled for this place, chilled atmosphere, friendly girls running front of house, small menu but well thought out that would cover most tastes. I had one of the specials Surf and Turf, the steak...More

Hi Pete, I emailed you 2 weeks ago as per your response to my review and have yet to receive either an acknowledgement or response to my email. Your statement in your response says - and I quote - "if there is any way we can convince you to come back and see that we can do much better then please contact me"etc. Your lack of response to me email makes me wonder if your words were for the purpose of the people reading the review as opposed to the customer service. Regards Karen
