This was the 3rd time that I have been to Giraffe in Aberdeen and have been impressed before, however this time was not good. We were sat down promptly and got drinks ok , we both ordered rack of ribs , very disapointed they were luke warm , lacking in sauce and no flavour at all . Spoke to the very nice waitress who apologised for the food and went to kitchen , who reportedly said they might not have put enough sauce on ribs ,
I had already worked that one out ,
I am not sure if I will return to giraffe , but if i do I will avoid the ribs .

The warm naan bread mezze and Thai duck stir fry are amazing! 30% off the bill with a Cineworld unlimited card which is an added bonus!

I love the menu. It's my favourite place to eat at union square. Have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend the jambalaya risotto or smoked cheddar quesidilla. Drinks are overpriced in my opinion but otherwise not a bad word to say about it.

I ordered a mexican style breakfast dish - don't make the same mistake as me unless you're on a bland diet. It was completely flavourless using what I imagine were the cheapest of ingredients.

After a few bites I turned the dish away and asked for the bill. The waitress offered an alternative by I didn't want to embarrass myself in case the second dish was equally bland. The bill was comped and I left.

On the plus side, it's a nice looking restaurant, clean and it has an otherwise appealing menu. Whether the other dishes live up to their menu descriptions, you'll have to find out.
