    We had a few dishes as large group and tbh at least 6 of them were really dry and overcooked especially the pork belly dish and the beef vegetablez needed more flavour other then just soy sauce, nice place but food wasn't Brill tbh.

    This is def a 'young persons' eatery - very loud music dominated the evening, we couldn't really talk without raising our voices, and neither could everyone else - so noise was overpowering. Food was interesting and flavourful - we ordered 5 tapas and it was plenty for 2 of us, and pleasantly surprised to be offered 'desert' menu to finish the meal. We're in our 60's - it wasn't really for us - not somewhere you'd take your parents. There were several 'groups' of young girls out celebrating - and I'm sure it suited them perfectly. Staff didn't really seem to 'know' about the food - tho' they made good efforts to ensure food was safe for my gluten intolerance.

    The service was awful, food cold and tasteless and the door was left open when it was freezing. When we arrived the restaurant was virtually empty and we shown to a table right in front of the crafty door. We asked to move tables so we were not right by the door. We got told we couldn’t move as every table was pre allocated and it was against restaurant policy. The next couple through the door also asked to be moved and we’re allowed to by a different waitress! When we said the food was cold, we were told they would speak to the chef and remove it from the bill. But then got the bill with all the food charged and told the chef said it was fine! The door was left open continually and the waitresses refused to close it even when I asked if they could. I had to keep getting up and doing. Staff only interested in chatting at the bar and ignoring diners. The my didn’t know the menu or ingredients when asked. They advertise paella on the window but don’t actually serve any either. Total shambles and awful food as well. Never eating in this chain again.

    I had a very good experience, i found the staff very friendly and helpful, i thought the food was excellent, the only criticism was that our starters didn't come out at the same time and our mains arrived before we had finished the first course, I'm sure it's just teething problems and will be ironed out. I will definitely be going back and would highly recommend it to others who are looking for something different in dover.

    Food was fantastic lovely dishes however the service really does need improving, a lot of staff but they are not really working as a team but this will come eventually. It was very busy but we were not asked if we wanted another drink, we were not asked how our food was and we were missing a dish over both courses that we had to ask for. We will be back to see if the service has improved but mainly because the food was lovely.

    Seated within 6 inches of the table next to us, food took an hour and 40 mins to arrive and was of very poor quality. I think they packed too many people in trying to make more money but simply could not cope.

    Lovely meal for our anniversary. Literally only down fall was when we booked it asked us if there was anything to make our meal more enjoyable and I said yes just anything to celebrate our anniversary and there was no reference to it. So not very personal in that respect but the food was amazing!

    First time and really enjoyed the experience. We thought the food was good, only a couple of irks. The lamb skewers were quite fatty and the garlic prawns were a bit one dimensional. We were sat under the speaker so the music was a little louder for us than we would have liked BUT will be going back as this did not spoil our evening. Service was great, food was hot, portions were ok. Spent £75 for 3 people inc an alcoholic drink each. We came out pretty full up and would recommend a visit!
