There aren't many restaurants in that area but the Butcher's Wife is well worth a visit. We went there for lunch on a weekday and were lucky to get a table.It is Halaal restaurant so you can't have alcohol.

Thanks for the great review. We definitely try our best to give you the best. We do regret however that due to the small size of our store, we are not able to take on any reservations and work on a first come, first served basis. We look forward to seeing you soon.

It was a nice experience. The atmosphere was nice but like generally when you walk in they just ignore you. My friend had the prawns and I had the ribs but to be honest I think it’s totally overrated. We ordered a focaccia and the waiter forgot to bring it. See, I don’t know why? Is it a sin to write down the order? The waiter actually repeated our order in confusion three times but didn’t write it down and yet he got it wrong. The best part about the night was that they make lovely chai latte. Furthermore the restaurant is really small and not appropriate for a date or a business meeting or just if you want a relaxing dinner. But because everyone raves about it I think it’s a must do at least once.

We had to wait about 40 minutes for a table....but next time I will make a reservation.....
The wait was absolutely worth it though as I have never eaten such an amazing Steak EVER!
The steak was prepared perfectly and I really couldn't fault a thing. The waitress gave us great service and although it was extremely busy ( it was quite chilly so they couldn't really use the outside space)we didn't have to wait long for our dinner. It is really great to find a nice halal steak house....where they actually understand the integrity of the meat and treat it with respect.

All good things in life is worth waiting for.... and TBW is no exception! Unfortunately, due to the size of the store, we are not allowed to take on any reservations. We suggest you come a bit earlier than you wish to be seated and we'll then accommodate you as best we can. As far the steak, well, thank you very much that's the way we like to treat our steaks - with respect. We are extremely happy that we have made your experience with us extraordinary, which is exactly what we have set out to of.
