Everything was great. My friend did discover a dead spider in her starter side salad. When we showed a member of staff they apologised but nothing was done to rectify the situation such as a free drink or removing the cost of the starter from the bill.

A lovely evening, a warm welcome and careful attention from all the staff. The food was delicious and very promptly served. There was a happy buz of conversation which gave a pleasant ambience and a nice personal touch when the staff took out a cake with candles and sang happy birthday to another group of customers. We had a very enjoyable time, thank you

What a lovely place, food is amazing, staff are very friendly and kind. I would defiantly recommend this restaurant and will be returning soon. It was my friends birthday and she was brought lovely Turkish delight and fruit as a treat and a lovely piece of orange cake, sang happy birthday and made us feel so welcome. The lamb koftas are to die for and the chilli prawn starter is a must. Thank you so much everyone.

This is my favourite restaurant, the food is excellent and the service is fantastic. They always make us feel so welcome. Can’t wait to go again! We were celebrating my mothers birthday and she had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Great overall experience, food was beautiful. Only thing I would say is the restaurant is a bit too bright.
