Popped in for lunch with daughter and 10 month old granddaughter. I use a walking stick and the easy access to the restaurant was appreciated. The staff were so helpful and kind, providing a highchair for the wee one without being asked. The food was generous, tasty and very reasonably priced. My daughter and I both had Thai flavoured starters...
