I wondered in here with friends once. The food was slimy, some of it was over cooked, and weirdly, it all tasted the same. Needless to say, I paid more than I wanted to for the quality of the food.

They have closed down to be replaced by a Tapas Bar and I am surprised they lasted as long as they did.

The term 'Express' might put some people off thinking this in a fast food type restaurant. It certainly is not. The décor is beautifully atmospheric , the food exquisite and the staff were just lovely.

Staying at a local hotel, I popped in for take out. Ordered the spicy basil chicken with steamed rice. It was very mediocre, and overpriced. Surprised at what they charged for the side of rice (no rice included with meal). Would not recommend.

This is a friendly local restaurant based in the high street. Service is a little slow but food is lovely. Would eat here again.
