    We was celebrating a 70 birthday and on arrival my mom was wished a happy birthday including a desert with a candle. This was a lovely touch. Very good service.

    From walking through the door, we felt looked after by all the staff. The food was beautiful (the Malaysian curry was outstanding). Service was excellent, no rushing at all. Really enjoyed our visit.

    I would call our meal overall good but not outstanding for 2 reasons: - both the starter and mains were excellent in content but the food was less than hot - the Malbec wine was distinctly off - either a previousl day's bottle or overheated at some point. To be fair the fault was accepted without question and the wine replaced but it got us off to a poor start. On the plus side service was excellent and friendly, and our Anniversary choux pastry was much appreciated.

    Superb experience. Visited with my wife for a treat on our first day off work together in some time and we were very impressed with everything. The staff were extremely pleasant and the food and drinks were delicious. We’ll definitely be back

    Absolutely lovely restaurant, staff were extremely friendly on arrival and continued to be throughout our meal. It was my wife's 60th birthday and we received a complimentary dessert with a candle in that was a lovely gesture. Our waiter was a gentleman called Ben who was very pleasant and a credit to your establishment. Food and drinks were delicious. A must try when visiting York.

    This was our third visit. This time was for a joint celebration. We were well looked after, especially by the young Greek man (we can’t remember his name!). Many thanks.

    Lovely food, great atmosphere and staff very attentive. Music and chatter was a little overwhelming ( had to shout a bit to speak) but overall an enjoyable date night evening with my wife.
