Special staff

by Colin T on 06 Oct 2018 (Couple Traveller)

We popped in as we’d seen the restaurant on Rick Stein’s India programme. It wasn’t as grand as we’d expected but the staff and food were great. Two courses with non-alcoholic drinks came to about £17 for two of us. I believe you can bring your own wine etc if you prefer.

Gorgeous Creole food

by alex p on 26 Aug 2018 (Family Traveller)

Very friendly staff with gorgeous creole food (indian and french mixed) Marvellous tiger prawn with Indian touch. Fried egg rice perfectly cooked Crêpes with Honey were pretty good and I have enjoyed my daily mint lime juice. Stew seafood mix was ok, I have found it a bit too salty and not so fancy.
