“Only if you are a sports freak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Kengeles is not a place for a romantic evening when you want to propose. Neither it is perfect for a business dinner to celebrate a $1M deal.

It is basic. The food is simple. The seating is not particularly comfy. The bathrooms remind me of Poland 25 years ago. The straff is gracefully indifferent (to put it mildly).

But if you are a football or rugby fan and you live nearby, it is the place to be. For big events make sure you arrive an hour or two before kickoff. It will be packed. 100%.

It is a fun place.

“Disappointing, tired & dated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Unfortunately Kengeles is not as inviting as would seem. The client has been neglected completely. Yes there is food but it is sir classed price-quality by other better performing spots. If there is a problem no one assumes responsibility. The atmosphere is unsavourably 'clique' which deters the arrival of new clientele. Sorry but there are no excuses for poor service - would rather stay at home.

Hi Kuzi, thank you for your comments, we have implemented a new menu and are working on staff training. There is always a Manager on duty and we will follow up on the issue of responsibility. We have some refurb plans for 2013, which will hopefully kick off soon! Let's get together!
