    Good value lunch venue that I have visited on several occasions with friends. Last visit on 23 December somewhat diminished by the side salad that appeared to have been drenched in dressing the previous day and on serving was an amorphous green sludge with decontructed tomato and transparent cucumber. I had ordered the salad as an alternative to the offer chips with my fish of the day. Just stick to the chips - my companion enjoyed his.

    Friendly staff. Venue itself is nice. Seats are a bit uncomfortable. Ordered a Mezze platter for 2 ($42), was definitely not worth the price for 4 skewers, some pita bread and very runny/oily dip. Would come back for a drink but not for food.
