Looks can be deceptive

It looks like any other ordinary bar, but it's not as it has a wide variety of food (as pointed out previously) and after the revamp, a Ramen shop has been added.
I have tried the Indian food previously and confirm that this is still very tasty food that is good value for money (try the butter chicken and naan). Recently had the chance to try the Ramen and came away after the meal licking my lips. I still think about the soup, which i'm told takes a long time to cook, and you can taste it! I pity those who queue for the Ramen shops around the area when you can have a seat at the ample space available and order/eat your Ramen in comfort.
Drinkswise they are good value for money and the music and ambience is really chilled out, especially at night. Music can vary from night to night but they have a wide selection (like their food) and you can request, for example one night it was classic rock and it was awesome to hear those great riffs and tunes again.

Depends on What you Order BUT

Nope

Went there for after-work drinks and some food on a Tuesday evening. Never been here before but liked the huge menu of different food types (Thai, Indian, Filipino, Western, etc). Drinks were reasonably priced (happy hour) but the food was disappointing. My gf had the chicken burger but couldn't finish it. Despite all the fresh chicken they used for other dishes the chef actually used a pre-fab frozen chicken patty and killed the entire burger. I had the BBQ chicken on a hot plate and it was decent. All in all nothing to rave about and will save my money for somewhere else.
