Service was awful. Waited 45 minutes for a drink and only 2 drinks turned up.
Half of the table still didn’t receive drinks. All food was brought out in one go (starters and mains!) the food is always good but the service has really been awful here for as long as I can remember. We kept being told it’s because they were really busy but the restaurant was half empty. We could understand that but the attitude of the staff was awful. Poor poor customer service

Very bad service, you will be put outside with people smoking. I had booked table over a week go and not told the table had been changed to outside with people smoking next to me. Food ordering bad you will not got the entire order or starter. Then on top they will ask you for 12.5 gratuity.

We pre-booked our reservation, only to find that we were seated directly next to other people which did not follow social distancing rules. There was also a very large party going on with a considerable amount of people which was very noisy and made me feel uncomfortable. As well as this, the drinks I had ordered were given incorrectly to us and it was a struggle to fetch a waiter to correct this.

Food is bland and has an unauthentic taste, looks presentable but tastes too much like a rogue recipe fit for iceland frozen food aisle. Decent atmosphere but random cats roaming around for food scraps

I booked table for two for 6.30pm. It was perfect time as we got to chose where we wanted to sit, as it wasn't very busy yet!
The starters were served promptly although we had to wait a while for our dinner as it started getting busy. The food was tasty and the portions were good size for two. The waitress there was very welcoming and made sure we were OK.

In spite of a confirmed booking of a table for 2 and arriving well in time, we were made to wait in the Q outside and in freezing cold conditions. After a 1/2 hour wait in freezing Q, a security guy felt sort for us and ushered us inside asking us to wait in the small waiting area. He told us that they had overbooked by almost double and hence the long wait.
After another 20 minutes wait inside, we were ushered to a table for two that was specifically put in place for us but placed right in the middle of an isle and literally without a canopy. No protection from the light drizzle of rain. That table either had a shot leg or the floor wasn’t even.
After complaining, we go moved to a better table. The waiters came round for our orders and as one does, we ordered a bottle of Tusker Beer and a jug of water. The waiter came back in less then a minute, to inform us they didn’t have Tusker. I ordered Diet Coke instead and also ordered 2 poppadoms to come with the drinks. Another waiter promptly brought us our drinks that included a bottle of Tusker (which they said they had run out of as the Diet Coke) without the poppadoms.
We were asked to order our starters and mains all in one go but assured that the mains would be brought to our table after we finished our starters. When the food arrived, both starters and mains arrived at the same time.
Must admit the food quality was good. However, our evening got ruined as one of the waiters and a manager had a heated argument with a group of diners on a table next to ours. Disappointed, we didn’t finish our meal and asked for our bill.
When the bill arrived, we noticed that we were charged for the poppadoms which were never brought to our table.
No doubt the manager revised the bill and deducted the service charge.
Overall, the management’s attitude as far as service goes, was not as expected from a reputable establishment.
The whole experience was no better the 2 stars. Very disappointed.

I attended here just as restaurants were opening after lockdown for outside dining so understandably it was lovely to be out.

The food was nice, the ambience was nice also.
They had a heated outside with covering and separation between tables.

Only downfall, the drinks have no prices on the menu; although prices were found not to be outside of the normal costs for drinks/cocktails/beers, it’s nice to know how much you’re paying BEFORE being surprised on the bill or having to call someone over or ask.

The staff could of also been a bit more attentive with special requests on the orders, such as bottled beer was ordered and not draught. When the incorrect drink was brought to us, we was given the ‘oh well you have to drink it now that I’ve poured it’ sort of approach. This mistake happened twice.

It was removed from the bill however but just a small downfall. Overall nice evening and I would return..

We sat outside near the garden the weather was great. Food was yummy too.

However the service was really slow for example we were getting drinks and they didn’t come to our table even if we said excuse me either they didn’t hear or were avoiding everyone in our corner :/

No shisha not stated on the website or 2/4/1 on cocktails.
Staff member mentioned a lot of people have come here for shisha yet we don’t have it due to covid.
They should have clearer guidelines on the website.

As always the food was amazing however the service wasn't great. We basically seated ourselves and there was long waits for waiters to take orders. The outdoor seating area is nice but when asked for the heater to be turned on we were told all were out of gas. Yet 10 minutes later other waiters were turning on heaters for other customers so our waiter just could not be asked to do it.

Food was hit and miss some was good some items not so good and some items all had same taste. Service was extremely slow given it wasn’t busy waiting up to 45 each time drinks were ordered. Tables could have been cleared quick too.
