    An excellent meal once again - food is superb. We were put into a side room for my birthday family gathering which was great and the ambiance of the place was nice, a lot of effort had gone into making sure people were separated with very nice borders, decorated to give the restaurant a very nice feel. Really cannot complain about very much - maybe just one comment is the rather high price of drinks, especially soft drinks. A pint of cola is less than the price of alcohol - that is quite disappointing.

    Food was absolutely delicious, table service brilliant. Food came out quickly. Leftovers were kindly packed into boxes for us to take home. Absolutely adore the interior design - has a very glamorous, grand, cultural feel. Even the restroom was lovely!

    The food were excellent and reasonably priced. The servings are huge so we had to take home some! The staff are nice and welcoming! And the venue is grand and the toilets are impressive! Will be coming back before the lockdown!

    Excellent service and prompt food delivery. The staff are always there to help with whatever you need. The food is presented to an excellent level. The tables are sectioned off so yoy a more intimate experience. Well worth booking for this restaurant.
