Well it's not an Indian so I'll be going at some point regardless of any reviews (good or bad).

Make sure you book. It's not a big restaurant and is obviously going to be popular.

So popular in fact that it wasn't open. We strolled along earlier this evening and despite the quoted opening hours (Monday-Saturday 18:00 to 23:00) it was resolutely shut at 19:45. Anyone else been?

Luckily plan B was a delicious prawn hot and sour soup prepared indoors with consumate skill and haste!

You're not the only one to have been sorely disappointed by the sight of a dimly lit, empty and locked tapas bar during the advertised opening hours.

Having escaped to Spain a few days before the advertised opening party date (19th Feb), I returned to these chilly shores with the hope of continuing to enjoy tapas.

Did I get the opening date wrong or is it a case of Thumbs%20Down?

Had a reply to my enquiry and all is up and running and open during the times on the door.
 
Looking forward to giving it a go Smile

Erm, I beg to differ.  I have stood outside a firmly locked door and empty restaurant during the opening times on the window. 

But, in the spirit of supporting new businesses in the village, I shall gird my loins and try again - perhaps on a warmer evening so that I'm not frozen half to death if they've not bothered to open up!

Maņana...

Strangely, the opening times don't seem to appear anywhere on the website at all (or perhaps I'm being blind).

Not an encouraging start then, but hopefully just start-up glitches.
I'll certainly try it - if it's open.
Has anyone actually eaten there yet?
That's the answer - what's the question?
