We love the cabinet we have been going since it opened and they just did pizza food exceptionally and service we especially like the middle room as not keen on live music but that's just our choice a bit of class on our doorstep

Food fantastic, staff polite and courteous, only issue was seating arrangements, booked a week before and was put in the small room next to the toilet and a radiator that was on full blast, told there was no more seating available as it was a busy night this was at 18.15, sat there for 40 minutes before anyone else was seated in small room, looked in main room and there were plenty of seats available, spoke to friends who were seated in main room who had only booked 5 minutes before coming in and they were seated in main room, I would say the seating system is wrong and those that have booked a week before should not be put in main room, and not used as a room filler to make the place look full

Nice food in a great looking place, drinks service was a bit slow (but they were busy) but you couldn't get your own because of coronavirus.

Came as a party of 5, food was ok although one of the party ordered a chicken hanging kebab and the chicken was dry. The dish needs a sauce or a marinade as its twice now the chicken has been the same.
Overall a good meal however service waiting time during the meal was slow. It took a while for our plates to be collected and drink orders to be taken. We placed an order for a drink and waited 30 minutes for it to be brought to us.

The Cabinet is great for groups and parties. However after visiting it’s not somewhere I would dine with my family or children. Although the service and food is excellent I found the atmosphere very loud and it’s not very appealing eating surrounded by groups of pretty drunk people.
Again great food, service and lovely looking place but the atmosphere and crowd just wasn’t for me.

Great service, literally no complaints if was being really picky the music could have been a tad louder and the table we sat at was a little chilly near the window but nothing major and wasn’t enough for us to ask to move. Food was great as always & value for money. Best thing to happen to Atherton.

The food was amazing and the value personally was great (3 for £10 deal) although some other dishes seemed quite expensive. The service from the waiters were good while they were there but often enough they were nowhere to be seen and had to wait 5-10 minutes to be able to find one and gather their attention. Could be due to being understaffed or another issue. Everything else was outstanding.
