It just goes to show it doesn't hurt trying something new every once in a while. Whilst small, this branch stands out on service and food and cleanliness. The same lady who greeted me helped me order my food and was very patient with my first time. She then brought my food over in ten minutes and i know she meant it when she said she hoped I would enjoy it.

It's about 10 minutes walk either side of the paradise forum or the train station. After leaving paradise forum I went to the library to hang out and catch the views of this amazing city. So many attractions here right in the centre of town. They're currently doing work on the mailbox to make it better and I was confused as the where the nando's was so spent about 20 minutes walking around the cube, doh!

Anyway I tried a chicken wrap for the first time with halloumi and a slice of pineapple inside, no lettuce, mayo, yoghurt or chilli jam, but it took us 3 times to get it right at the till and sharon was so patient with me. I would have committed murder tbh. I also ordered creamy mash with the intention to put inside had I ordered the pitta which I realised later.. Anyway it was all good and I could definitely try a wrap at another time if I couldn't be bothered to deal with bones so I know I have alternatives now. I might look at trying new things later on..

Imitation Tumbleweed light coverings and mosaic patterned art work, entangled horns as a central centre piece. Large urns with reeds and african patterned cricket bat type paddles on the walls it was all very arty in here. Great service, great food.
