Had a lovely meal here on a very busy Easter week Thursday evening. We arrived at 5 and just got the last table ,people after us were waiting 1.5 hrs for a table. It is always busy and the tables are a little close together but it has a lively atmosphere and the service is excellent for such a busy place .
We had 2 pink gins and pink lemonades which were nice but pricey at £7.95 each. We shared a starter of Dublin bay prawns which were in a delicious sauce but came with fried potato cubes which was odd. We also shared salt and chilli prawn crackers which were just prawn crackers sprinkled with salt and chilli powder . Our mains of shakin beef and honey chicken were really good and tasty, however a side was not included and rice was 1.75 and a tiny bowl of noodles was a whopping £2.50 . This was really ridiculous I have never been given such a small portion of a cheap item like noodles especially costing £2.50! We took our desserts home and they were lovely at £2.50 each or £5.95 for 3 . Overall we loved our meal but just feel that they charge too much for some items especially sides. Bill for 2 was £61.25 ( see bill)

Busy Sunday evening and both bar and restaurant were very busy but service was fast and pleasant . Excellent choice of cocktails and other drinks.

Fabulous food and delightful cocktails. The service was excellent. The wine list had good wines that were surprisingly reasonably priced. Recommend the duck pancake starter. Come hungry!

We ate here recently on recommendation but found it very overpriced for what we got. £12.95 for chilli beef, which was more like a soup with beef and vegetables floating in it and then you have to pay another £2 for rice. It is also more like eating in a bar than a restaurant, which some people might like, but I found the experience uncomfortable and unpleasant.
