We were very early but it was a good meal. Food was very tasty and quantity was fine. Not the biggest menu compared with others I have frequented but plenty, non the less. Less is more perhaps. I recommend the Goa fish curry.

I'm not sure this old establishment can recover from the dire straits it is now in. Whilst the waiting staff are pleasant and friendly they haven't got a clue what they are doing. If our dining experience had been half as bad as it was...More

Never before have I sent back papadams to the kitchen. They were soggy, and tasted like yesterday's. The draught beer was flat, but I was too embarrassed to return that too. The service was very slow. The food was mediocre and nothing at all like...More
