I really wanted to like this place, I really did, I had hopes of it becoming my favourite place. So Like everyone else, I bit the bullet and decided to wait in the freezing cold for 30 minutes to get in.
Once we got in, we then had to wait for another 10 minutes for a table.
My biggest issue was with the staff - Having never been there before, they don't tell you to order at the bar, so another 10 minutes waiting around. When my table was ready, the waiter just pointed at the table - no words, just pointed, he didn't show me to the table - he pointed at the table. If, like me you like polite staff, this place is not for you - even though it was proper busy the staff just couldn't wait to talk to each other.
The music was loud to begin with, but the staff turned it up because Oasis came on, as if to say "yeah take that, this is how we like, if you don't - you can just leave". I'm trying to eat, now I've got some moron next to me shouting over the music to her friend.
The food was ok. The way their website talks about it I was expecting some Man Vs Food style food. Onions were undercooked, the bun was wet, and it seemed like they had dipped it in mustard. We asked for cheesy fries, expecting melted cheese over fries - No way baby - salty fries smothered in Cheese Sauce(VOM). Also they don't have napkins, they have kitchen roll. Cooooool right? Not really, theres about 5 rolls in the restaurant so you have to ask other customers for it.
In 2011 Charlie Sheen from two and a half men had a break down and did an interview where he came out with a list of odd catchphrases "Winning, Tiger Blood, etc" I recall it being funny for about a week. This restaurant references this at any opportunity: "WINNING FRIES" "DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH TIGER BLOOD" "HAPPY CHARLIE SHEEN EVERYONE"- for a place that is trying to be Hipster and non mainstream they are making themselves look like morons. Unless they are being ironic and are making fun of the fact it is lame to reference Charlie Sheen? But they're not
Theres a chart on the wall which explains that customers are jealous of the staff because they have such awesome jobs - I suppose they do have good jobs, standing around with their best friends, having a laugh, not doing anything- and they get paid for it. I'm not too sure I'd like that job.
I also saw this woman wiping her sticky hands all over the arms of the couch she was sat on - If you enjoy this type of atmosphere, good for you, but don't be bragging about it and proclaiming it to be the best place to eat.
If I had read all the negativwe reviews before I went, I would probably have still gone just to check it out - but I wish I hadn't. The food was ok and the price was ok but everything else is so stupid.
lets open a restaurant and not explain what anything on the menu is. I felt like an idiot ordering "Hiya, can I have some crack wings please"
How about I open a restaurant called 'poo-poos' all we serve is Pizza but to order you have to say "Can I have a poo-poo please" How annoying would that be!
