Beautiful decor and delicious food! Lunchtime deal a bargain. Friendly and swift service. Fresh fragrant and tasty food. I enjoyed my dining experience very much and I'm going back this Friday! Free parking around the back is a bonus!

Really fancied some Greek but the restaurant was shut. so Went to this restaurant instead as it caught my eye. Ordered my drink before getting the menu. Really wish I hadn't! Unbelievable prices so high! But I thought that it must be good for the price "WRONG" . The starter was okay (Thai dim sim) the main very disappointing lemongrass... More

Went here today to celebrate a birthday. The food was fine but I definitely would not go back because of the terrible service. We ordered a la carte & because they forced my 3 & 4 year olds to take adult portions we had a lot of food left over. They do takeaways so I asked if I could pack... More

The food here was very bland and just thrown together. No effort what so ever. for the price of the food I expected something atleast edible. Wouldn't go back here again. The place itself looks lovely... Very decieving.

Visited several times most recently for Sunday buffet. Good value at £16:50 per a person although not sure why they add a service charge for the buffet. Food is very good would recommend lamb massam and green chicken curry. Service ok could be better took a while to order drinks.

This venue was one of our favourites but of late the service was very slow and the food not always hot but otherwise quite good.,

I visited this restaurant twice before in past years and I was therefore surprised to find that on this latest occasion the food and service, as well as the quality of the wine (I expected much more flavour from a Gewurztraminer and a better taste from the vintage Port-1985) and the bill I was eventually presented with, service included, ended...

I have been here probably four times now and never had a bad or even average experience. The food is outstanding, the ambiance of the restaurant is chill-axing whether you are with friends or looking for something more romantic - the bridge over the small water feature is great to take you to your table and that's before you have...

I have been here many times and each time the food has been delicious :-) I normally come on special occasions as for a local it is pricey, however the food is definitely worth it. The atmosphere in the restaurant itself is great and perfect for romantic meals.. Especially nice on Saturday evenings where it is busy with live music
