I would say this is probably our favourite restaurant in the area. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and the children always made to feel special. Delicious food and the portions just right. My favourite is the king prawn purée and lamb madras.

Interestingly enough it wasn't very busy, but we waited and waited whilst everyone else was served even tables that clearly arrived after us. The staff were a mixture of over friendly and arrogant, we were also short changed on a drinks order by £5 which...More
