Went for lunch with my family and was really disappointed with quality of food. Not to mention that we returned a starter which overly salted and my chicken wrap which had no chicken. Won't be back

I ventured back to this restaurant after an absence of about 30 years. Located on a mezzanine level in a mall, the decor is much updated and the menu features some standard and rather unique offerings.

The food (starter and main course) was very good to be honest. Full marks for the menu and delivery. However, we decided to have one of the many varied cakes for desert. While we did not have every cake, we did taste a few and invariably they were too sweet and a touch on the dry side.

While smartly dressed and presented, the waiters and waitresses seemed to be pre-occupied with sports scores / after work activities. The food took an unreasonably long time to be delivered and the restaurant was not very busy. Perhaps they were just lazy?

As far as I can recall, this restaurant has been in the mall since it opened. That does say a lot about consistency. Would I return? Definitely for the starters and main courses. Not for the cakes - unless you have an extremely sweet tooth and a resistance to diabetes.

Food excellent.

I had almond crusted chicken breast. It was fantastic with the vegetables.

The chips were so good did not need any sauces.

Cake supermoist.

Service was quick and friendly

What a fantastic turnaround

Well done
