On 15th September we dined at AK's Bistro. I don't know who chose the decor but its very 90's black, white & red and pretty cheesy. The dining chairs are really uncomfortable. They didn't need a gimmick, just great food & a warm comfortable environment would have been a very welcome change in Evesham. Unfortunately this is not the case! Firstly the woman supervising that evening had a real attitude problem & seemed to take complaints personally & told us that the manager had gone home sick. There was a delay with each course, we waited 35 minutes for our starter & no bread was offered. One friend didn't receive her main until we were all halfway through ours, meaning we left well after 10:30pm. The food was actually nice once it arrived. The only excuse they gave was something about walk ins and how they couldn't cope, which is not our problem. We booked in advance! Oh well, we won't be returning & definitely won't recommend it. They could do so well in Evesham as there is no competition in the town, but not with the poor service and attitude. They need to listen to complaints instead of getting defensive & trying to shift the blame off their shoulders.

Invited to a 40th Birthday Meal, there were 9 of us. The service was excellent the staff very polite and attentive. We recieved our courses in good time. Every one enjoyed their food from vegetarian to steaks & fish infact I think we almost covered the menu!
Well done AK's a lovely meal. We will be back.

We decided to eat at the new AKs bistro located at the Northwick. Given that its been given a double AA rosset we thought the evening would be a great success.
Upon entering the decor was superb, really looked like a great place.

Ordered drinks which came over quite quickly and ordered food at just gone 7.15 - at around 8pm our starters finally arrived, which tasted fine but were on the small side.
Just before 9pm we finally got our mains, by which point we were starving. There were only 2 other tables both of which were couples and there were only 6 on on our table so not busy to say the least.
Out of the 6 mains 3 were not acceptable, 2 steaks which should have been Rare were extremely over cooked. Both came our well done. The vegetarian lasagne type thing was also not up to standards. If we had bee anywhere else we might have sent the food back but after waiting for over an hour we didn't know by what point we would get replacements.
Whilst we were eating another couple sat in the restaurant, so in total 4 tables. All of which including us complained by the end of the night for the very poor service and the very very poor food.
I felt extremely sorry for the waitresses as they seemed to have their hands tied by a very poor chef.
Overall the decor was great, front of house staff were extremely apologetic but without a good chef this place will be closed not long after opening. Food was not acceptable nor was the wait!
We won't be eating here again which is a great shame as it could have been a really gem!!
