We tried the Dockland Steakhouse last Thursday as we had heard a few good things about it.
First off they don't accept cards so make sure you have cash on you, actually they don't even have a cash register from what I could see, I got my change back out of a drinking glass.
I ordered off the early bird menu, I had the rib starter and the steak for main course and my other half ordered sirloin from the main menu. I was told after asking that my steak would be 10oz, it was about half that.
Our steaks were ordered medium & medium rare 40 minutes later both had to be returned as they came out well done. All steaks are served with sauté onions and mushrooms, I asked for no mushrooms, instead I got burnt fried onions with bits of mushroom.
We asked for side salad and home-made chips with our steaks, half of the chips were raw and the salad that we asked for without dressing came out covered in dressing. We got this replaced with another side salad which was a few green leaves that looked like they were just taken out of a bag of salad you get in the supermarket.
We didn't stay around for dessert as we had had enough. We were not the only table who had problem that evening, there was only two waiting staff on and there were probably seven tables with people seated. A few different tables sent food back and everyone was waiting too long for their food, a couple seated behind us had to remind the staff that they had not received their main course.
One thing I will say is that when we finally got the steaks that we ordered the quality of the beef was excellent but a steakhouse should know how to cook a steak to order. Oh and the seats that are from the idian restaurant that was there previously are comfy too.
Unfortunately we won't be returning.
