We ate here for dinner early evening and waited over an hour for our starters. They were good, however our main meals arrived at separate times. The food was undercooked, and as a result both of us felt unwell the next day.

This place used to be fantastic. We loved the chicken skewers, goulash, sausage cassoulet etc. Now it is just like a pizzeria. Very disappointed. Can we have the old menu back please.
