Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

Seated and greeted straight away by Georgia and she gave me the bright yellow booth in the front corner of the branch. From one seat you can see the whole restaurant but I didn't want that so sat in the one facing the window. It's a clean branch, bright, well lit and colourful. The centre piece hanging down.. not sure how to describe it but it's unique and eye catching.

A little wait to order but a young man came over to assist. I'm ordering light today though I'm hungry as I saw a Creams en route and want a mango mania for dessert. Just a 1/4 chicken mango and lime with sweet mash. Unfortunately they don't have the peri pomegranate sauce which I've adopted since Portsmouth but ill stick with the lemon and herb sauce for the mash.

It's busy so I can understand the 13 minute wait but the mash is tasteless and the chicken is dry on arrival. They're also warm. I would have preferred a spicy, moist leg piece than a bland breast piece. Good thing I only ordered a 1/4.

The staff are nice and friendly, the branch is clean and enticing so I would definitely recommend it, a shame about my meal but I would come back it was so easy to get to.
