Lovely welcome and friendly service throughout. Sat in the outer bit which was good. Nacho starter amazing. Great tasting. Sons salt & pepper squid worth nicking a morsel from. Lamb tagine main was ok. Sons burrito better. Churros went down really well for pud. Enjoyed it.

Id never heard of this place before and my friend suggested it to me whilst we were both starving wandering around. Staff were friendly and quite laid back which i liked. The food was lovely as well and good value for money id say. Id definitely go back again.

What started off as a nice evening meal rather quickly descended into a big disappointed. We had already booked a table but "somebody had taken it" but we were quickly seated elsewhere.

Found the choice really good and tried the salads which were really tasty. Fresh and served fairly quickly. Drinks a bit pricey though. Will visit again.

Just wasted fifty pounds on a dismal experience here's. Arrived about 7.30 but were told had run out of our choices of food. Partner ordered rigatoni and it arrived looking as if it had been lying around for half an hour - dried up meatballs and pasta. My Malay curry consisted almost entirely of potato pieces with the occasional bit... More

Called in for unexpected lunch whilst shopping at Trafford Centre today. Service was quick food was lovely. I had the Prawn, Chicken, Mango and Advocado salad in Tequila and lime dressing. Hubby had Lamb Tagine which looked really nice and he said it was just perfect😊😊 price good also £37 for 2 main courses and 2 drinks. Would return.

Food was under seasoned and lacked care!! The service was very slow! We ordered nachos which were 8 pounds pricey!! They had 1g of cheese on and were so dry! We had a brisket burger which wasn't very nice at all:/ would not be coming back was 40 pounds not worth it at all would be better off at KFC
