    Very good service and food. We only went as we were having an early pre-theatre supper but it was surprisingly good.

  • ((((* by from Hemel Hempstead

    We enjoyed our meal very much. One thing to mention we sat at the end of a row of tables by one of the windows as you enter the restaurant. There was a little shelf at the side of the window and there were lots of brown stains from rested glasses. This did not look good.

    We had a very nice meal. The addition of Indian items was a plus. Good wine too. Place was very quiet for a Friday night.

    The staff were very welcoming. The service was excellent; attentive, but not over the top. The food was delicious and the variety of the menu meant that there was something for everyone. i very much enjoyed my salmon with basil mash. My co-diner had the shellfish risotto, which looked very good and she assured me it was also delicious. Whilst we didnt have room for a whole dessert because of the generous portion size of the mains, the staff and chef were accommodating in letting us have just the stem ginger ice cream which was divine!

    The lunch menu was not only interesting but also delicious. It was just a shame that it was so quiet - only 2 tables occupied.
