    We had our scout meeting there and it was a very good evening. I was worried that it would be too noisy for a meeting. However it turned out really nice, very relaxing and our meeting went really well. The food was great and the waiters are also all very friendly. The restaurant had a range of food that suited everyone, the price was very student friendly and it was a better choice for us then going for Chinese which will be more expensive. Thank you for the service we would definitely come back again!
