Robbed waitress was taking the money out the pot and leaving the bill, then made us pay twice for some beers. Obviously we kicked up a fuss and then they did it again as we were walking out.

Good choice to take a breath along Bangla road. The band are fun and energetic and the girls work hard and lave you alone when they realise you are not looking for company. Enjoyed it here

This is a typical bar in Bangla Rd, but is has an excellent live band every night who are energetic and perform a great range of songs. I recommend sitting outside, this way you can watch the crowd pass by and still enjoy the music....More
