I cannot say enough great things about this place. I loved every bite of my meal. My drink was also amazing. I have been here at least 3 times and will definitely be coming back soon.

The food and the service is OK though it can be a little rushed. The early evening deal is good value but otherwise not particularly cheap

Stopped off for a bit of lunch while out shopping. Been here several times and have always enjoyed the food. Good range of dishes, food always very tasty and full of flavour. Great range of cocktails, great way to spend the afternoon.

Dropped in here by chance after walking around Lakeside. Just fancied a change from the norm. Bread platter for starters followed by the chill con carne. Wasn't disappointed. Chilli quite spicy which I enjoyed. Would go back, buy there is so much choice around the area, so it depends on what quisine you are after.

went here with friends after a morning's shopping. A reasonable lunch but somehow not quite as good as the one we had in their branch at Westfield at Stratford. Service was quick and efficient (but they were nearly empty on a Tuesday lunchtime.
