“Terrible Service, Mediocre Food - AVOID!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

TGI Fridays was always good in america so i thought it could be ok over here. Anyways the staff we terrible, barely talked to you and the food i probably could have made at home myself, The chicken strips were like something out of the freezers at tesco, Absolute waste of money, i ordered a steak myself, it came down and was a really bad cut of meat not what you'd expect from such a prestigious restaurant. I complained at the end of the meal about how poor the cut of meat was, meanwhile the waiter interrupted me mid sentence to say 'Don't worry we will sort you out' then just walked off. He came back 5 minutes later to say the manager says some bits of meat are like that and there is nothing they could do. It would have been nice for the manager to come down and tell me himself, which again just shows how unprofessional the place really is. Needless to say it is nothing compared to the food-chain in america, and i will not be back. Ps the staff need a good kickin as their service was atrocious

“OK food but service could do with a shake up”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Went to grab a bite to eat here with friends. We waited at the bar (cocktails were lovely!) and after about 10 minutes we were shown to a table.

Our starters arrived, but no one had brought over any cutlery, napkins etc. One of our party had to go to the bar and ask for some to be brought to us. Our mains were then served, but all the cutlery had been taken away after the starters. Once again, we had to go looking for cutlery, condiments and napkins.

We were later told that the table we were at was usually the bar's responsibility to serve as opposed to the restaurant. The lack of service really put a dampener on our night out. The food was OK, but I've had better elsewhere for less. We won't be rushing back.

“Terrible and overpriced food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Take various frozen goods from LIDL, fry them in old oil and you got the right picture. Oh, and pay them like they were gourmet.
