    THERE IS A FILIPINA THAT WORKS IN THE KITCHEN, NAMED MARGO, SHE IS A CORRUPT THIEF. DO NOT TRUST HER. DONT ALLOW HER INTO YOUR FAMILY'S ROOM

    I notice a review here from Dinesh Kitchen. Dinesh is the "chef". This is a very suspect review. Dinesh can cook if he puts his mind to it but generally the food is lousy and getting worse. Think tinned carrots, peas and a disgusting mess called mashed potato, used as a base for several things. It does not resemble potato at all except it is white. Brussels sprouts are indescribably watery and no effort is made to cook cake for my husband after an initial boast that he could cook vegan chocolate cake. Dinesh does not know what silken tofu is. He thinks dairy free means lactose free. Even the vegetable curries are becoming disgusting. It is a miracle how good food can be so ruined.

    This is a first-rate facility - everything about it is at the highest level. It is a lovely, thoughtfully-designed environment, which is well managed, and staffed by happy, competent, caring people who ensure that the residents' interests are always their core focus. The residents have welcomed my father into their "family" with friendliness and warmth - and have ensured that this transition has been a very happy experience. I can't speak highly enough of the team here!
