“wowcher deal”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Arrived to an almost empty restaurant. Two waitresses hovered around us continually whisking away finished dishes which seemed to have been prepared well in advance of our arrival. Lobster was swimming in sauce with a blob of noodles underneath, fish was tough and not tender and flaky like other lobster i'd eaten. Beef in black bean sauce was fatty and slimy but rice was ok. The waitress asked whether we wanted dessert and we accepted. Apparently it was meant to be mango pudding.....it was two slightly flavoured blancmanges covered with a teaspoon of evaporated milk. i would not have paid the full price for this meal as it was rather disappointing and somewhat rushed. Couldn't wait to just pay and leave, will definitely not return with or without a voucher.

“Very ordinary”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Can't really say anything too bad about this place. The food was ok, the service was ok and that is all.
Thankfully we had a discount voucher otherwise we would be very disappointed. Difficult to park in surrounding streets as it is in middle of Golders Green but it is close to the underground station.

“Good food, but felt very rushed!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Myself and my Husband went to this restaurant Sunday evening with a wowcher voucher. We were a little apprehensive initially as we had red previous reviews saying how unfriendly the staff were. Initially the staff did seen a little frosty but seemed to cheer up as the evening went on however we did feel very rushed my husband hadn't even finished the first course before the second was plonked in front of him it was very obvious that they wanted to turn the tables round as quickly as possible. The food however was excellent and could not be faulted in any way. we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would definitely go again with a similar deal.

“Management was totally rude and the service was poor!!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Tonight I had a meal here for My Sister's birthday. I had a WOWCHER DEAL, 50% off. Meal total was £21 instead of £43.. The Management was very rude and ignorant from the start. He denied ever bein involved with The WOWCHER DEAL, AND TOLD ME AND MY PARTY that we could not retrieve our Voucher. Then he came back to our Table and argued that the Voucher we had, had already been spent!!! It was a very imbarrasing moment... They finally accepted our VOUCHER and we were served drinks after about 20 minutes. The service was slow and not very attentive. The Lobster Dinner its self was reasonable. .. the fish cooked nicely but the noodles hard and the sauce very over powering. All in all not a bad price. But as we are received the Bill, there was an added £3 service charge. Which I questioned and then received a refund after a shallow argument with the Management. Would not recommend due to the un comforting atmosphere.
