Well as it was a special occasion we thought we would try somewhere new. We had had a take away from the May Flower many moons ago and it seemed ok so we thought we would have a sit down meal.
We parked up outside next to a car that appeared to have been abandoned across 2 parking spaces (I know this seems unimportant, but it is a point we will get back to later)
We where eventually greeted and shown to our table after we entered the resturant. The Restaurant was empty apart from one other party which we where seated right next to! I have to admit that the decor is nice and in style with what you would expect from a Chinese restaurant.
We ordered some drinks and they turned up with complementary prawn crackers. As we were deciding what to eat. My partner noticed out of the windows (we could see where our car was parked) the owners of the slap dash parked car walked out of the resturant pushed the wing mirrors in on our car whilst having a laugh about it. My partner rushed out side to ask them why they felt that was necessary, they shouted some abuse and wheelspan up the road. (Keep with me on this it is like an Agatha Christie script)
So anyway we ordered a set menu with a few extras, the food I would rate somewhere between nothing special and Poor.
The waitress was like being served by your an enthusiastic grandma she would come shuffling up to the table with a huge smile, she was polite and pleasant but would disappear for large amounts of time which lead to long waits between courses.
As there was only ours and one other table in use for the whole time we were having our meal, it was like having a meal in a library (I know this is not really the restaurants fault) however I am sure a bit of piped in background music would of lifted the mood a bit.
Then when we asked for the bill. As mentioned in other reviews there was no itemisation, just Food, Drink... and then what I first though was the latest update on Greece National debt, so when we finally found a late night bank that would let us remortgage our house on the fly. We where then told that the card machine was not working very well, followed by "Get Cash, Sainsbury's"
We finally convinced the waitress to try the card machine, which took about 5 minutes to print out a recite. Happy times, no jaunt to Sainsbury's for us.
So as we were leaving, guess who was sat in the bar waiting to deliver the next phone order... You guessed it the slap dash parking pair...
All they need now is for Brasil Fawlty to be behind the bar.
