It's next to the shopping arcade and is a good place to take a break from the retail session. A glass of wine and a selection of nibbles is good. But there are better places for a sit down meal.

We went for a meal here with friends - 4 of us in total. We had asked to be seated upstairs as it's roomier and quieter and we got this. Our service from Satayah was amazing and above expectations - thank you. The food was lovely and plentiful ... thank you for a lovely evening

Place was fairly quiet as we ordered our food at 12.35. Eventually arrived at 13.20 after complaining to waiter. No explanation given or discount. Only saving grace was the food was good.
