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

  • ((((* 6 August 2016 by Anita Foster 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!
