Came here whilst in the area, don't be put off by the outside, looks like an old museum from the outside but completely different inside. Great service, very tasty food, would definitely return again if in the area, great value for money

I visited with my wife and was disgusted by the way this place is run, waiters belittling each other having private conversations in amongst guest (in some cases crude cringe worthy). As our meal continued we hear commotion and saw the chefs all come out in force into the main restaurant having a physical brawl with the waiting staff pulling... More

I tried this restaurant last night for the first time, I had heard good things so had high expectations. The food was really delicious and reasonably priced. Great service.

Wow - I walked in at 8:30pm and the whole restaurant is a total buzz.
