    Spent some time enjoying the festival that was going on, and decided to find somewhere to chill for some food - on initial glance we ignored this restaurant as it didn't look like it would be child friendly, but a quick confirmation that they had child menus (and that the kids were happy there was something they liked) and we were shown to a table. Kids wanted inside, and we had a nice table in a corner with lots of comfy cushions. Food and drink ordered fairly quickly and it didn't take too long to come. Recommend the duck salad. It was very nice. In fact we all enjoyed our meals. The kids meals also came with a desert, which made them very happy! The service was very good, and happily disappeared to get the kids more ketchup when they needed it! A nice place, wasn't overly expensive (especially for London), and if visiting the area again would certainly consider coming again.

    Private room booking. Decor and the room in general was spectacular. We loved the additions of the blankets and cushions. The room was well sealed off and it even contained a TV which a plethora of shows one could watch! Service was great. Couldn’t fault it. It was the food however which was the disappointment. The starters were lovely, would recommend the calamari. I ordered the goan chicken curry and rice. The curry wasn’t really well flavoured and the rice had hard (undercooked) grains within in. The steak my friends ordered had to be sent back as it was described as being medium, but was clearly well-well-well done! The churros were over fried - super crispy and didn’t have the soft centre one loves in a churro. I would return for the starters and drinks, but not the mains unfortunately. Didn’t live up to expectation. 10/10 service and ambience though.

    I was expecting much better after reading intial reviews. The Goan (chicken) Curry was appalling and the naan bread that went with it had little taste - I’ve had better at local pubs! My partner’s fish and chips was ‘okay’ and the beetroot falafel starter was well presented and tasted fine - a pity what followed! The wine was nice though.

    Went for Christmas Dinner in the restaurant and it was a very pleasant experience! The holiday decorations are superb for which you will feel definitely the holiday season. Christmas cracker on the table was highly appreciated as it makes you feel that they offered extra effort on the holiday dining experience. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The food from starter to dessert were really good especially the mains! Loved and impressed with the good portion and taste of the Christmas Turkey meal. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    My and my office colleagues had been to this place for breakfast and I must say the dishes that we ordered were amazingly tasty. I had ordered full veggie breakfast which had avocado, poached eggs , baked beans, stir fried mushrooms, tomatoes.. The coffee was hot and good. The ambience is lovely. The location of this place is perfect. We had reserved the place so we didn't have to wait or anything. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
