Stopped in the central last week for lunch and ate in the back restaurant. Had the prawns on flatbread and it was just swimming in oil!!! Absolutely disgusting! Was my second visit to the central and the first visit was nothing to write home about. 2 chances over won't be giving it a third.

This place has won awards and I can see why. It's always heaving, has live music and the food is good. Love the rooftop bar in the warm weather. Not fond of the upstairs function room which is long and thin making it difficult to mix with your group. Not fond of the three deep crowd at the bar either.... More
