“Best TGI's outside of the US”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Our nearest TGI's is Cheadle Royal, but that is far from impressive. However the TGI's at the Royal Exchange is well worth a visit. We were entertained at the bar by the cocktail waiter whilst we waited for our table. 20mins wait max. Our food was served quickly and was excellent quality - especially the steaks. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

I love TGI Friday's. I usually just order 2 courses for £9.99, which isn't bad at all. The meals that are on that offer are like £9.99 by themself, so to get a starter along with that is a real bonus! I have the chicken caesar salad and the garlic mozzarella dippers. So delish!

“Overrated and expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Visted TGI Fridays with my girlfriend after hearing great reviews from pretty much everyone. The starters were the best bit of the meal but was expecting more than 12 nachos from the platter. The main courses were decent size and quality but was expecting more. Overall a decent meal but overpriced and not as good as everyone makes out. A place for people who enjoy nando's.
