We visited The Animal for a friends birthday. The restaurant itself which sits above The Newtown Hotel is super cool and funky. The waitress we had was very friendly and helpful...those are the positives. The negatives are pretty bad, our chicken skewers were completely raw in the middle, after one bite we realised this. As it's pretty dark in there it was hard to see before hand if they were cooked but as soon as you ate some you realised they weren't. I'm not sure if anyone has eaten raw chicken before but it's an awful taste and feeling. This put me and my friend who was sharing the meal (this is the style of restaurant, plate sharing) off the rest of our food. My husbands main meal was 20 mins behind everyone else's so he was left to eat on his own. We were given a free desert (for two people and there was five in our group) to compensate for the ruined dinner which I thought was very tight! Newtown is full of restaurants, don't end up at this one!
