We recently visited for lunch and sorry to say were disappointed - the lovely sauces that use to accompany our meals are not as good.

We visited this establishment, returning after a some time to discover it had changed ownership. Still the same amazing value and authentic environment. Very clean and bright and very accessible,much updated. We had the biggest surprise of our lives! The change in the food offering is amazing. A very friendly wonderful owner who is the perfect host and very knowledgeable about his food offerings still retaining some of the old signature dishes and favourites as well as many new. The Tacos and Banana ice cream after were something out of this world.

We sat down to be greeted with a warm smile and a menu immediately,that was simply mouth watering just to read.

Our order then appeared soon after piping hot and perfectly cooked. An explosion of tastes all fresh,exotic and sophisticated flavours. Such mind blowing quality. There was no false flavouring,no over spicing and the dishes were cooked in a health conscious way.

This chef should be in a High class London establishment and on the gastronomic stage!!

Many many thanks. We will be back!!!

We were visiting the restaurant for the first time in nearly a year and found that Martin ,who'd run the place for years, had recently retired. The new owners however had been trained in his recipes and sauces and whilst I hadn't thought it possible, had actually improved them.

Also they'd modernised and refurbished the interior to a high standard and the service was excellent and I cant think of anywhere that beats it in terms of high quality at very reasonable prices.

They have also extended the opening hours into the evening and added a delivery service, which I would definitely take advantage of if I didnt live so far away.

We have been using this place for a while now, once a week at lunchtime, takeaway burritos!!
These are absolutely amazing, all cooked fresh whilst you wait. If anything the premises could do with a bit of a paint job, but the food is always good.

Have eaten here several times and every time it has been higher than my expectations. The food is delicious and doesn't take long, the staff are helpful and polite and you can sit and eat it by the water. What could be better?
