I attended this restaurant on a Friday Evening. The place was very clean considering it was quite busy and the kind waiter showed us to our table. Me and my partner ordered a set menu and ordered our drinks. Our starters came before our drinks which I was a bit disappointed about. The food I may add was superb and... More

Really nice restaurant, food was fantastic everything was so fresh and tasty with good size portions, if your not a big eater you can take it home a doggy bag, iv seen loads being taken home but its so nice i'll sit there and eat till im bursting. Parking can be a bit of a pain but its worth it.

No further explanation given by the 2 girls manning the bar & when I asked to speak to the owner, I was dismissively told that... More

Fantastic meal especially so when you consider the industrial scale of the service, a packed restaurant and an 8 course banquet, each course absolutely faultless and well cooked The dragon dancers were good, the lady singer, not my cup of tea, but ok and then theres the "comedian", this would have been a 5 star review but for him, probably...
