Popped in for a quick family dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The lamb and halmoumi burger, while not large, was really tasty. Kids meals were good too. We'll be back.

We came in and we're attended to almost right away. Limited tables, but it was a Friday night. Friendly staff, quick service and high quality food. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to.
