My partner and I made the huge mistake of eating at this awful restaurant, if you can call it that. On arrival we waited to be seated and were shown to a table. A drinks order was taken and the drinks brought to the table. My lime and soda was more lime than soda! We asked what happened next having... More

Food from all over the world. I love to try different food and this place has them all, well almost. I'm not a big guy but I can eat......I had 12 full plates of food from all the different countries before dessert(s) The food was really fresh and tasted great....and very good value for money.

My wife and I called in here with our two sons (13 & 7) before a concert as we were a little pushed for time. My eldest son was just on the 150cm mark so we were told would be full price for him. Fine we thought as he eats like an adult anyway! OH MY GOD! Once we were... More

I went here when it first opened and thought it was great. Returned this week and was horrified at the state of it! There was hardly any food out and what was there was dry and absolutely revolting. There was even a chicken salad left out, unrefrigerated! Goodness knows how long it had been there! I was so concerned I... More

This restaurant is the worst I have ever dined in! To start with the presentation of the food was awful, the areas around the food was very messy. Most of the food containers were empty and the food that was left had been sitting for a good 6 hours as there were dry residue around the containers! Considering the size... More

We read some bad reviews but we always give somewhere a chance ourselves. Glad we did, the food is amazing, definitely try the chicken ticket and the curries. The service is fast and the waiting staff are very attentive. If we go to Cardiff again we will be there... X

Was that bad I didn't even give the puddings a go...Will... More

I can honestly say that this was possibly the most hideous evening I have ever had! To start the food was gross and half of the plates/spaces were empty. They boast that they have a wide variety, but that remains to be seen. Everything tasted like it was left over from the lunch service, it was Luke warm and piss... More

The food was varied and overall of a pretty good quality - wasn't what I would call incredible but was quite tasty. There is food from lots of cuisines: Italian, Chinese, Indian and English were the ones that stood out. Most of the food is always covered, but some is open. The desserts tasted great - there are little nibbles... More
