At first I was a bit dubious because the prices were quite low, but I was well and truely supprised. The food was great, everything had a nice spice to it without being overly hot. The service was a bit of a let down though, I understand they were quite busy but to greet us with a serly expression and then to ignore us for 45 minutes is a bit rough. When things started to quiten down the wait staff started to warm up a bit, but it was already a bit too late. It was an unfortunate stain on a very tasty meal.
