Good experience overall. Probably didn't need a booking on a Thursday evening, but service and food was good. Must try the eggplant dip - it's excellent!

Was really good. We were pleasantly surprised. The only criticism is the meat was a bit overcooked and dry. Was still good and service was excellent. Nice decor too...traditional with a modern flair. Highly recommend.
