Hard to find a quiet spot to have food either inside or outside on match days. Not impressed by their catering to vegetarians/vegans. It was unclear that the green curry contained shrimp paste, luckily I asked. When I then asked for a vegan options I was given a flimsy piece of printed paper with random vegetable items. When I queried if this was all you got (i.e just broccoli if I chose the broccoli option) the waitress said 'of course not its vegan so you get lots of vegetables'. Five minutes later the food arrived (it is very quick!) and of course all I had was broccoli and white rice...certainly not worth the price I paid (pretty much the same as my boyfriend who got a green curry with meat and veg). While the green curry was flavourful the broccoli tasted like corn flour and processed onions, a bit of ginger would not have hurt! 

The food adds a twist on the sports bar sterotype, and the cocktails are to die for!


I'm slightly perplexed by the popularity of this bar and I'm rooting for it to do well as I live right beside it! I just don't think it knows what it is and it was very rushed in being put together, I think that shows. As a local, there are several much better options within walking distance
