The hygiene was poor. The staff had dirty clothes and towels which left me to the opinion that the rest of the place was not up to standard. I walked out before I was served

I was staying nearby, and this was the only restaurant available in walking distance on a Sunday night. The food was served promptly, and was tasty. Thoughtful touches such as a warm towelette for cleaning hands, and some free sweets/choc while awaiting the bill. Recommended.
