“Better than expected”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

We thought we’d try this as we were passing, I admit I did not have great expectations.

We were quickly shown to a table, the waitress was very friendly and there a relaxed atmosphere with a fairly young clientele

We both went for the Phod Malay Noodles, and were served quickly. The food was very tasty, fairly hot (chili) but also unexpectedly gloopy. The fresh lemonade with mint drink is to be recommended.

Giraffe was better than we expected, the waiters and waitresses very helpful and friendly, and reasonably priced. Walton has a lot of restaurants to choose from, we may well go back.

“Weekdays to beat the queue”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Cant fault this branch as they always cater to my partners allergies. But as a tip better in the week or not when market is on or expect to wait a bit.

“So so”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Lots of pros and cons with our first visit to this particular chain. We had to wait a long time for the single starter but the waitress couldn't have been more apologetic and assured us that we wouldn't be charged for it when it finally arrived. The food was a bit hit and miss. My steak sandwich was tasty but overdone, the chips were indifferent however, the onion rings were fabulous. I enjoyed most of the lime cheesecake masquerading as key lime pie except for the heap of grated lime rind adorning the top. Another gripe was the loudness of the music but perhaps a group of fifty somethings who want to chat over a meal isn't their target clientele. The biggest plus was the staff who were excellent.

“Would recommend”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Nice food, well priced.. Food took a little long to come but didn't bother complaining. Waiter must have sensed a little agitation apologised and deducted our drinks for inconvenience & seemed genuinely sorry - excellent customer service!!!!

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

This was the second time going to this restaurant and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The waiter was brilliant and had a chat with us. The food was the right amount (could have been cheaper because of the quantity) for each person.

The fact that the waiter was friendly and wanted to talk made the dining experience even more worth while.
I would happily go back in if I knew that waiter would be there.
