I enjoy eating here, i have never had a bad stomach! I had FIVE plates of food to start with, and THREE of desert. No problems! The food was hot, although one dish was only lukewarm. I don't understand why people have given poor ratings,...More

A bit disappointed is what I feel. Went in for lunch with my family. The place itself was OK looked clean and friendly well lit. Not too full at 1230 but not empty. The selection of food was uninspiring mostly starters. Don't get me wrong...More

I think it's about £15 in the evening and cheaper during the day, yes there is a good variety for vegetarians however you can also have food cooked in front of you if you select your own ingredients.

I'd say it's better to book as the place seems kinda busy.

Most of the food was either made with noodles or batter, or in very close proximity to food with noodles or batter, it'd be worth giving them a call about it as they might cook things seperately for people with allergies... More
