wow what a new store!!! This area of Sheffield seems to be undergoing somewhat of a renovation and many brand stores and restaurants seem to be moving into the area. I parked down a side street which whilst is residential area allows up to 2 hours parking for 40p an hour which was plentiful for my needs and is free after 6.30pm.

The exterior of the corner store is black but features large panoramic windows which seem to be able of opening up behind the guard fence to bring the outdoors in. The back two windows down the side are fake with a wall put in inside them for some reason.

Upon entering the smell of new wood was lovely and there is a "tortoise shell" dome with central pillar which along with the windows gave a nice airy feel to the store. A pleasant member of staff gave me the choice of tables and pointed out the location of sauces (of which there were many) beverage (well cleaned) and Toilets (upstairs and very clean and spacious). I choose the back of the store where there was a range of booth tables and also a very nice 9 person round table. Whilst less art than some stores what there was there was of a very high standard, I particularly liked the African take on some american classics.

Ordering was quick with no queue and a pleasant person on the till.

Food came out after about 10 minutes, The chicken was succulent and cooked just to my liking but the star of today was the chips with a generous portion cooked exceptionally with a liberal dousing of Peri Peri salt. I struggled to finish them but the effort was worth while. This is a place worth coming to.

If your ever in Sheffield head to this store and check it out.
