    Excellent service from arrival through the meal (in a private dining room for 8 at no extra cost) through to a correct bill delivered when requested. (Trust me, a lot of restaurants have no idea how to do this bit. It’s as if they don’t want your money)
    Anyway, an excellent evening and we will be back for another Banquet Meal

    First of all the food was great, on the other way I wasn't very happy with the staff. They gave us a 4 person table and we were just me with my wife even though I saw a couple of 2 persons tables available but then I thought they're booked. We've finished our dinner which by the way was very nice and had left our drinks. They took the plates and this lady came immediately with the bill which was fine, I paid and she left in the meanwhile still we enjoyed our drinks. Then she came again to ask if we want something else and I said no, we are going to finish our drinks and be on our way. Then she said the table was booked by someone else and we'll have to hurry because they'll be here any minute.
    Now why did she put 2 people on a 4 seats table? (I've booked Thurday for Saturday)
    Why she kept pushing us out? (We spent 54 pounds for our dinner)
    This is going to be a reason not to recomend the restaurant to any of my friends.

    Outstanding all round!! Particularly loved the piano playing - lovely touch! We absolutely loved every item we ordered, but if we had to single out one dish, it would be the ‘Beef in Mandarin Sauce’!
