The worst service I’ve think I’ve ever had. Food appalling and the restaurant was empty. I’m not surprised. Do NOT be influenced by other reviews which must be a scam.

Eat here regularly and it’s always well received. Tonight I brought in 3 friends who had their first experience and thought it was lovely. Service was great and done with a sense of humour.
