    Booking was easy and just had to show card on arrival. Set menus are not available using the tastecard deal but no restrictions on anything else. Mixed starter was very nice and the following masaman curry very authentic. Staff were lovely but service was a little on the slow side but as we were not in a hurry this was not a problem.
