Visited here for the first time. Pleasantly surprised by how nice the restaurant was, very clean and tidy, wide variety of food to choose from and very tasty. The restaurant was full with a steady stream of takeaways too. Will definitely go back 😀

This a very good restaurant- food is prepared well and the staff are ver courteous and obliging. Management seems keen to provide good sett. I'd recommend this restaurant as a place to eat if staying at the nearby Holiday Inn Express.
