Ordered a takeaway with lots of heat unfortunately we didn't get any onions or peppers, just a hot tomato sauce with some prawns. The place looked nice but food wasn't what we'd hoped for.

I think we had some staff who were new to this restaurant. Food was fabulous and here hot means hot so take care if you don't want tingling lips. We eventually got the drinks and food we ordered and it was worth waiting for.
