It was another disappointing trip to Talisman, we thought that because of the refurbishments and it recently opening to the public again, we would try it out again.
It was a Wednesday lunch, pre-booked table for our family of 8 who were celebrating our father's birthday.
We arrived early and there was only one other table with clients sitting down.
3 x Burgers well done with French fries
1 x Mutton Curry
2 x Salads (they call the salad bar)
1 x Fish Fingers and chips to share
Typically, the food took ages to arrive from the kitchen, we were constantly asking the waiters when it would arrive, and by then, the restaurant had started filling up. Other tables received their food before us, even though they arrived after us!
Anyway, it finally arrived and the three burgers were more like beef tartar, and they came with wedges and not French fries. Ironic, because the reason for the food taking it’s time was because of the burgers…
The salads were not what we ordered; they were identical even though we placed different options.
The curry was overpowered with ginger. Now, the person that ordered it is a true curry eater and can take a lot of heat and spices, but the ginger overtook the dish. The air around the table smelt of the ginger too.
We were so fed up and tired that we even skipped dessert.
The 'head' chef, who hovered around inside and went to the other tables to greet clients, did not come to ours.
The restaurant supervisor/host, was kind enough to remove the curry from our bill.
It was another disappointing meal at Talisman.
