“Bench of Doom”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Whilst the food is ok and by ok I mean just above average. I personally do not like the lay out or how your meal is presented or served. To me it smacks of rushed and waiters who just do not care. Maybe .. and I am being kind here.. I might have been on a bad day.. but surely eating is an experience and not a cattle market.. Sorry I won't be rushing back

“A dome of fear”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Well I thought I would go for one of the curry options only to be presented with a dome of rice , covered in what appeared to be runny nappy poop.

Not one to judge a book by it's cover, I tucked in... only to find the food was merely luke warm, the 'Japanese pickles' a handful of waitrose mixed leaf salad, and the chicken was dry as a dinosaur bone.

With it being busy and no check back taking place I worked my way through hoping it would maybe improve after a few mouthfuls, not once being asked if everything was ok, which is bad service.

I saw a lot of other dome poo's go by and wonder if everyone else was having my experience.

In future I will stick to what I know best as always enjoyed my past meals here.

Adios dome poo!
