Bad dogs is the type of place you go to with friends to have a few drinks and enjoy the environment, it is a great place to chill, service is good but it can be slow if the place is fully occupied, other times at "off-peak" hours the service is great. There selection of tapas is good, and they usually... More

This review is for the Bad Dog in Damodar City. My friend and I ordered and payed for desserts 30 minutes before returning to surprise a friend who was migrating. We waited patiently for 2 hours. The ladies who took our order denied that she served us. Food is worth the pay but not the time. The garden ambience is... More

Ordered the special which was a fish burger but it came with the cassava chips - I had tried these a few times and was not thrilled with them so I asked if I could substitute it for regular chips and they did not oblige. So I ordered the bad dog burger. Average at best, lacked sauce so it was... More

Was disappointed by this place. No welcome upon entry or seating ourselves at the bar. Bored bar staff impatient with us deciding what drink to order and asking questions. Lack of vibe or music. Disappointing soft-based/crusted pizzas. Was only there to meet a friend (a local who was also a disappointed).

Great hangout place. Great food. Good service and very helpful serving staff. Good bar scene too. Sea platter and burgers worth trying out. Also a place that exemplifies tolerance and acceptance of human diversity and personal life choices through its hiring practices. Great place to meet friends and make friends and in midst of a great shopping complex and cinema.

Great for casual lunch or dinner with few drinks. Awesome place to celebrate birthdays for adults or catch up with mates. Service is good. Friendly staff. Surely recommend.

In a rush to find shelter and a quick meal on a rainy day the Bad Dog was a welcome sight. A very tasty lunch, at a very reasonable price and promptly served by friendly staff. After this welcome repast and an Olympic update on the tv we were primed for th wet drive back to the Coral Coast.
