Plenty of menu options, and very tasty food. Nothing flash but still a good small and older style option. Fair pricing and easy access. Some reviewers warn that bookings are needed at peak times but we had no problem as walk-ins during busy school holidays.

Your question has been answered already, but a tip is that if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night make sure you reserve your table. The place fills up pretty quickly and I've seen "walk-ins" turned away many times.
