“Good food, not very good service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

We have been to Sirokan many times, every time we were in La Gaulette, during the last 6 years. The food was sometimes average and some other times really, really good. The place can get quite crowded and unpleasant in the evening and as a consequence the service on the poor side. The terrace is a small patio which is bordering the main street (Royal Road), so it's not really scenic..
What we have noticed during our repeated visits, is that the owner is changing the prices as he wishes (sometimes you could eat big camarons - freshwater shrimps for a price, the next day they had a different price, higher of course), although the quality seemed to be the same.
Do not fall for the "catch of the day" scheme - You might end up paying way to much for a grilled fish which is fresh and good, but surely not worth what they're asking for.

“We were passing by several times until...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

We were passing by several times until we decided to give it a try. After hearing some average comments and reading the review of a pre tester we finally had to try.
The place seems like a shed and it is. There is absolutely nothing about it and with it goes the atmosphere. We ordered a a seafood platter which they praised as all fresh from the day. We payed expensive but the quality was good.
Service was friendly but incompetent in it's way. You could look over that but overall there is too many negatives for that place.

“Dark, dingy, dodgy looking food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2011

After reading the recommendation from Lonely Planet, and meeting a couple who, like us read it was fabulous in Lonely Planet, went and said it was good, off we went. We would not mind to pay a bit for exquisite food and an enjoyable night out.

But NO! It was the worst experience we ever had. The staff tried their best, but you can't make something horrible fantastic. And we're not picky at all. The decor was horrible. It was a dark, damp smelling place. We couldn't eat the terribly expensive meal we ordered because the place just felt really creepy.

Honestly, we didn't like it at all. Yuck!
