“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Went there after my son told us to give that a try nothing to rave about variety of foods but not very tasty service was attentive but the price is bit high for buffet restaurant restaurant big but most of it was empty considering where it is atmosphere bit noisy good for people who can eat by quantity not the quality!

“Rancid oil”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2009

Jimmy Monaco's is owned by the INC group who run several of the restaurants at the O2. They clearly work on the principle that it's better to make maximum profit from each table by cutting costs than to provide good food and get return customers (there are no "regulars" at the 02 arena restaurants, just people who need to eat before/after whatever show they're there for). They only serve burgers and sides. Restaurant smells of rancid oil, clearly reused for several weeks. Burgers overcooked from frozen. Several options for topping in the "design your own burger" menu but only the cheapest ingredient choices are available (my request for parma ham was replaced, without asking me, with a rasher of streaky bacon). Most repulsive, greasy fries I've ever tasted (and they filled the bottom of the bowl with burnt bits from the frier). Staff are miserable and I can't blame them- they must stink when they get home from work.

“delicious burgers - meat...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2008

delicious burgers - meat was great quality, no gristle, and toppings were delish. Only complaint is the hard benches you gotta sit on!
