    Food was absolutely delicious. Everything we ordered was amazing. Service was a let down as they clearly wanted us fed and out as quickly as possible. Our starters and mains came at the same time with the servers explanation being "sorry I forgot to tell the kitchen you wanted the starters first". So that wasn't great. The bill was placed on the table as soon as the dessert dishes were removed. Obvious they didn't want us hanging around. Experience felt very rushed so put a bit of a downer on a great meal.

    Food was ok, found it a little bit expensive for what it was. Starter was quite nice a plate of fried potatoes with a chilli dip.Mains was a prawn cari,basically a prawn curry with rice,which i thought was quite expensive for what it was. Overall didn't think it was worth the money, but that's only my opinion.

    Great to sample some of the food from mauritius. Been wanting to come here for so long and travelled over 160 miles to get here and it was well worth it. Ordered a few starters, mains and desserts and the four of us shared it all between us and it was fantastic quality and great service

    The starters were amazing! Pretty cool drinks as well. It was extremely loud inside. I couldn’t eat my main dish as I didn’t like it. The cuisine meant to be Creole/Mauritian but the dish was made with spicy sausage which was peperoni?! You simply don’t cook pepperoni like this. This is why you cut it in extremely think slices onto the pizza, cause it becomes bitter and creates sicky feelings after a while. I told the waitress and she said that she’ll remove it from the receipt but to whomever she mentioned the simply said no and I had to pay it. I understand that it’s a personal/subjective taste BUT YOU DO NOT COOK WITH THE WOKE PEPPERONI TO ANY DISH. Not even Italians do! Main dishes are extremely small as well. So appetisers and main have the same size. Good size for a starter but too small for a main.

    Food was fab - full of flavour with lots of layers. Spicy, without being too hot. Interesting dishes, and great veggie options. The starters in particular were outstanding. The chairs could be more comfortable, though, and the shabby chic look is a bit dated.
