My wife and I went for a meal there on Saturday for 7pm. Sitting. We where waiting half an hour for our drinks amd another 10 minutes for our orders to be taken. The meal itself was excellant. The service was slow though. I put it down to them being short staffed. They usually have more staff. We look forward to our next meal there. Hopefully we will be served quicker next time.

Group of friends visited on Friday 29 December. Chose from the “December special” menu. Portions very small. Main courses arrived luke warm. Some should have been sizzling. Rice luke warm and lumpy. Very small portion of chips. chili chicken was a chicken fillet in pale soggy batter cut up. The sauce turned out to be satay. Dessert was 1 very small scoop of ice cream on a very big plate. Staff appeared to be under pressure and most likely food was left lying until someone got time to serve it. Service very slow. Very bad value for money. Has really disimproved. We won’t return anytime soon.
On a positive note..the staff were very nice and friendly.

We visited this restaurant with a party of 5 recently. It was early on a Monday night and there was only one other couple in the restaurant. I thought that this might affect the quality of the food, but everybody was impressed with both the service and the quality of the food. Seemed a little over priced to us. However, we will be back.
