Went for lunch after a morning Christmas shopping after recommendations from friends. The place was busy with a welcoming atmosphere. We settled for the set lunch which was a bargain at £10.95 for 2 courses. The food was excellent as was the service. Viktorija served us and she was very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely be back as there were... More

Nice atmosphere, although very noisey, Prawn Lingiune was very tasty and didn't have to wait long for food even though restaurant was nearly full, waitress Viktorija very attentive.

We went to Birmingham for a couple of days Christmas shopping and had pre-booked this restaurant for a Christmas meal. I must say the food we had was lovely but when we got the Christmas menu we were advised that they had sold out of Turkey? So No Turkey for the Christmas menu? We were told it was because they...

Met some friends here before going to the Christmas Market. Our waitress Viktorija was excellent. Made us feel very welcome and didn't feel under pressure even though our friends were running late due to a delayed train. Thank you for a great meal and out standing service.

The restaurant was busy but we received a warm welcome from all the staff we met. I recommend sitting upstairs if your looking for a quieter eating space. Our server was very accommodating as we wanted vegetables with our main. Both the fish and beef pies we're excellent.
