We visited Smoky Mojo after many months of waiting to see what this place would be like! The menu looks good and promises to also taste good. It is however a very extensive menus with a strange mix of Asian and Western tastes.
Started with a round of milkshakes that tasted great! Would definitely recommend you try one, after a short wait out came the starters. The duck spring rolls were nice and hot when served to us however I cant be sure if they were prepared fresh or were frozen before cooking. They tasted good and I would definitely have liked a larger portion or bigger rolls!
So on to main course, My friend had ordered a burger with no cheese, unfortunately the burger came out with cheese on it. The staff were very attentive and quickly rectified he error and cooked up a fresh burger. The staff were very helpful and apologised for the error multiple times. I had the mixed gill for mains, it was all cooked well and the kebabs tasted good, the other items of mixed grill however could have been better. With the mixed grill I was also served a nan bread, I was expecting this to be freshly made however it didn't look like it was. I really think small things like freshly made bread, ensuring food is piping hot and fresh ingredients can take this place from average to great.
We were asked if we would like deserts, we were also informed that all deserts were frozen, just something to bare in mind if you decided to visit and have a sweet tooth.
I would recommend you try this place out if you want to try something new, however when ordering the menu is very extensive with too many options.
I would like to see this place really concentrate on just a few things and get them right to start with before branching out to so many different types of food. (think nandos, simple menu great tasting food). I feel Smoky Mojo could become a real gem of a restaurant in Hertford however there is defiantly room for improvement especially as its located so close to north London, where you can find some of the best fusion and eastern food in the country.
