this was a long time ago and we trust that the service has improved. went with a group of 8 to 10 and had to wait for an exceptionally long time for a restaurant which did not seem overly busy.

When this restaurant first opened, it was great, freshly cooked food, attentive staff, and a great manager, when the manager moved on, it started to go downhill, the second manager appeared to lose interest, and the staff followed suit. The food became pre prepared, the service sloppy. The exterior of the place started to crumble, the place looked like it... More

Reading the reviews from the last couple of months we experienced a similar and poor experience last night . Management have not taken on board any of the feedback on board and it seems they don't really care about improving the situation for its customers . Well done guys !! I won't be back in a hurry .

paid nearly £15 for a takeaway meal for one. Main course, side dish and a bread nothing fancy. Tasted like something from Weatherspoon's on a Thursday Indian night. Never again

Disgracingly overpriced beer, we ordered 3 different currys and they all came out looking necular! Even worse they all tasted the same! The worst meal I have ever had and to get charged 5.20 for a poorly pulled pints in Walton is a scandal

Eat at this restaurant regularly since it opened. Food is great both in and takeaway but disappointed to learn that the prices have mysteriously gone up by nearly 50% in recent weeks. Will not be eating here again!!

Nice to have a restaurant with white table clothes, food was good,plenty of choice on the menu, the service was fine, quite a large venue. Don't normally have to book, worth giving it a try

The restaurant itself is nice, but the food is very average. Everything we ordered seemed 'similar' (like a 'stock' sauce and the meat wasn't great. There are better ones in Walton sadly.
