The food is great, the décor bohemian, the lighting subtle, the music "just right". Therefore, this should be a relaxing, chilled place to spent time with friends....but it's not! We were told on booking we could book at 6.30 or 8.30, so we chose 6.30. Every table downstairs was occupied and we got our food about 7pm. At 8pm we were still eating and drinking, when we had the bill dumped on our table and we were told we had to be out by 8.30. Every few minutes after that the waitress came to check if we had paid the bill. We felt harassed. We asked if we could have coffee, the waitress told us "no", as the table was booked at 8.30. Three tables had come in for the 8.30 sitting, but there were 2 tables empty! As no one was coming for our table, we stayed a little longer to finish our wine. At 8.45 the waitress told us the booking for our table had been cancelled and we could stay. We spend another £9 on coffee and very disappointing cheap Turkish Delight. When we left at around 10pm the other 2 tables were still empty.
How can this system be economical? Had we left when we were asked the restaurant would have lost our £9, and had no other customers. If the other 2 tables had not been chased out at 8.30, they might have gone on to spend more also. This system makes it unpleasant for the customer, as an hour is not enough to have a meal.
