Decided to try out this Restuarant in Didsbury because it looked really good and I am a massive Elvis fan also I had picked up some menus the week before and the choice and variety on the menu seemed excellent. We arrived at 5.30 and the place was practically empty (that should have given us a clue). The decor is all Elvis pictures and album covers and there are TV screens showing footage of him continually. Music wasnt Elvis music but was good and the waiter who served us was very friendly and effecient. I ordered Creamy Garlic Mushrooms and my hubby asked for Crayfish cocktail which they didnt have but offered him Prawns instead.The mushrooms were swimming in a sauce that had a layer of grease floating on the top. They were overcooked and soggy. My husbands prawns were drowned in a seafood sauce with pineapple pieces and limp lettuce, they were also hard as nails. For main I ordered Scallops and King Prawn Linguine my husband wanted Steak n Ale pie but it wasnt available so he went for the Barbecued Chicken wings. The scallops were rubbery, the prawns were hard and the linguine must have been cooking all day , pure stodge. The whole thing was swimming in a sauce again full of grease and even worse ,full of salt My husbands chicken wings were thin straggly things with hardly any chicken on them and so overcooked the skin needed a hammer and chisel. Again the whole thing was swimming in a barbecued sauce full of salt. I can honestly say it was the worst meal we have ever had. Because the waiter was so nice and we knew we would never return we did our best to shuffle the food about so it looked as if we had eaten some. When we left the place was quite busy with mainly 18 to 30's , who were all eating Hamburgers and chips. The portion sizes looked huge so obviously this restuarant caters for fast food ,which I'm sure it does well at but it certainly cannot cater for a more discerning taste and would do better to keep the menu simple or hire a chef who can cook. I just managed to get home in time to race to the loo to get rid of the whole meal and my poor hubby was up till 4a.m. getting rid of his ! Never again !
