I had been to so many places to try hot chocolate nothing could compare to theirs. The baked carb was so delicious. To top it up the owner Mr Raja's... More

Amazing meal at this lovely restaurant! Highly recommended - the scallops and mussels were amazing, I don't normally like thermidor but the sauce was delicious! We both had tenderloin with a very large tiger prawn and it was outstanding! The owner is fantastic and has taught his chefs incredibly well. Huge thumbs up from 2 very fussy customers!
