This restaurant gets so busy, but it is worth the wait! They don't take bookings, but even at the busiest of time, you would only be waiting around 20 minutes. The service is great and the food is delicious.

We sat down for our meal around 8pm and we were still ordering main meals at around 8:30pm so last food orders are definitely after 8:30pm - maybe call them to find out for sure!
