Starters were beautiful, we had a sharing platter. My Red Thai curry was awesome too, just would have liked more chicken as £12.95 is not cheap! Hubby felt the same. My niece... More

It was my twelve year olds birthday yesterday and, as it's her favourite restaurant, she wanted to take her best friends who had never been. It is also my birthday in a couple of days and I had a voucher for a free bottle of Prosecco. The staff couldn't have been nicer. My youngest daughter had her katsu curry served... More
