Last night it was busy as ever around 9 pm but we had quick an friendly service and as usual delicious dishes. Last night we greatly enjoyed the crispy duck and sizzling chicken. Hot spicy soups are also a great favourite of ours. This restaurant goes from strength to strength. We love it.

The food is outstanding. The ambiance is not so quiet and could be a bit more authentic. Watch the prices of wine, they have no wine list offered us the choice of 2 bottle sand tried to charge £28 for a bottle of average red. Apart from this the food is brilliant.

We ate here twice during TT week. Think this is a fairly new venture and they are still sorting some things out! First time it was completely full and the very friendly and pleasant staff were struggling a little to cope. Our meal arrived over the space of 5 minutes which meant some of it was going cold before everything... More

Came for diner with a friend, we sat in corner by the window. Good was tasty, would say the portion sizes were a bit small. Staff were friendly but could have been more attentive. Kind of felt as though we were in a grandmother's front room due to the decor and atmosphere.
