Food was great, and menu was excellent. Ambience was fantastic too, especially for our large group business dinner. The service was occasionally somewhat curt, and every now and then a simple drink order would go astray and have to be chased up. Other than this,...More

The food was delicious however the service was tedious. Avoid the banquet as it’s a complete farce. They delayed bringing out meat skewers by over an hour and try fill you up on bread and dips.

Amazing menu with very tasty food. We opted for the meat platter and it was bloody brilliant. So tasty from the dips through to the skewered meat. Very good service and we couldn't eat it all. Must visit if you have a chance.
