Tonky Gorilla

I had understood from my research that Tonky Gorilla was a revamp of an old MacDonalds restaurant, I was quitely impressed by what they had managed to turn it into ...although the location townwise, streetwise did let it down a bit ... inside the atmosphere is a bit overwhelming the front part of the venue is OK, decked out with cushion stool type things but as you move towards the back and see whats going on with that dance floor - that is the area which lets it down for me, I can't stand any place where you cannot dance easily or for that matter - swing a cat.

And whats with those folks who seem to take up precious dance floor space with absolutely no intention of actually dancing ....aaargh.

Anyway its a worthy effort but it just lacked the space - or maybe they should reduce the number they allow into the place you so you all have a bit more space to breath.

Bombay Dreams

I hosted a party here for approximately 12-15 people. I had prebooked the table well in advance and it was a gamble as none of us had ever been there before. Where dinner/dance places are concerned we were all very happy with the end result. The music was a combination of live singers at the start followed by a DJ playing some great Bhangra/Desi tunes into the early hours. We food was also OK but then going by my experiences we never go just for the food in which case its best to go out for either one thing or the other. Good idea is to order pitcher/jugs of soft drinks will save you a lot of time ordering individual refills. For those who like a good sized dance floor then this venue is good.
