The best thing about this place is the way everything is served - in experiment lab glassware and test tubes, adding to the ambiance of the place.

Food from HELL!

If there's one thing you need to order, it's the Devils Hand (roasted chicken if you were wondering). Can I say "finger lickin' good"?!

The creaters have definitely got a thing for eyeballs here too, with lots of dishes coming with accompanying eyeballs... it's kinda creepy, but these chocolate desserts are disgustingly good!

If you are planning on drinking they do have an all you can drink menu - which you shouldn't look past, especially if you have more than a few. My favourite, the eyeball and vein cocktail in a lab test tube!

Are you game?
