When i first came to this place it was good. They had a good variety. The food was semi-authentic. Good. But over the last three visits over the last three years it has declined in quality and choice. They don't have the set menus they...More

Dined with 3 others for a friends birthday dinner. Despite ringing ahead to check what time the kitchen closed and see if we could pay separately, when we got there we were hurried and made to order straight away as the kitchen was closing in...More
