    Food amazing as usual but no masks or visors worn by staff who came very close whilst taking orders and serving food. Considering that these people come in contact with a constant flow of members of the public daily surely this is not good practice? I left wondering whether it was worth the risk to dine there.

    We didn't feel very welcome, I think they didn't like us using taste cards. The food was okay but definitely not as nice as the same food we had at zizzi Trafford Centre. The drinks are extremely overpriced - over £3 for the passion fruit drink which was basically fruit squash with a bit of sprite. In a small glass with some rosemary.
