They do very good food here. Everything we had was nice, I would definitely recommend it if you are near eat street. They have a wide range of food and drinks, so there will be something to fit everyone.

Hi, I'm really sorry your food came out before your coffee, but I'm pleased it was so good! Our coffee machine sometimes does get overcome with orders, we are working on ways to speed up this process! Thanks

Hi LikMar, I'm sorry you did not realise the 'Cut' was a Stonegrill Item. These are presented on a 400C Volcanic stone and yes, you do cut sections off and cook them to your requirements. The technique is to cut a couple of slices as...More
