We had an excellent meal. I had Thai chicken curry soup which was excellent and my husband had pork ribs. Meat fell off the bone. Very reasonable. Excellent value

Food was very acceptable but we found the music was not. Too loud and not in keeping with the location. The person serving was chewing (gum/food). Windows could do with a clean. But otherwise satisfactory.More
