My husband and I visited on the 1st of August 2020 and had THE most amazing lunch we have had in a while. I had the yellow curry with pumpkin and he had the sweet pork.

Our social club enjoyed a wonderful evening at Duo last Saturday. Service was exemplary and the food so so tasty. Many of our group have said they would return. We can't thank DUO enough.

I came here for dinner with friends to celebrate my birthday and to be honest the food & service is pretty average.

Just loved this place. The staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the menu had a really good but limited choice of dishes so it was easy to make decisions, and the food was of the very highest quality.
