Been having takeaway for the last 5 years approx. many Saturdays and food was always waiting for you with a smile from the staff. Since the new owner has taken over, the food is cooked when you arrive to collect so you are waiting another 20 mins and elderly member of staff who takes the orders is ignorant and miserable...

My partner and I visited the restaurant and the food was okay, however to say I have been poorly since would be an understatement. Which is a shame as I enjoyed our meal at the time but I haven't been right since. We had to ask for bowls to eat from and the set menu means we were limited with... More

I visited here with friends one Saturday evening to try the new all-you-can-eat menu that seemed to be raved about. The waiting on staff were superb, very friendly and quick to take orders. You order any items off the menu and it's brought to you. You can order anything as many times as you want! Food was hot and delicious... More

Went last night for a family birthday, the young girl who served us was lovely and helpul but the older man who I assume was in charge was totally vile, he was unpleasant and actually rude. The service was slow, the food was OK Will not be going again !!

Visited on 16th Feb to find there was only a limited set menu available. No veggie or fish options. However on request they did do us a selection of veggie plates which were all tasty enough. Plenty of food, all very tasty and hot. Service was quick, friendly. We were the only ones in the restaurant which made it a... More

I attended this restaurant on a works do in January On the plus side, you can take your own drink so if you want to make the night a bit cheaper you can, think there's a corkage charge but if you are big drinkers this will easily pay for itself. The starters came pretty quickly after ordering which was great... More
