The menu although vast I battled to find plain food . The service was great. We had a few wrong orders that were sorted out quickly. The manager on hand all the time . A good choice for people who like different type foods .

An invitation for lunch led me to this place. Menu was concise and not to varied...this was a good sign. For main meals of the lamb and sirloin the consensus was good. Dessert the chocolate brownie was a winner. The waiters could articulate menu better...More
