Have been to this restaurant many times and its hit and miss. Went there in the week and it confirmed that it would be our very last visit. The food was awful I had duck on a bed of what can only be described as a mush it ruined my evening and the service was poor.
I rang the next day to complain again and the manager was really not that bothered and was more concerned that the meal had been taken off the bill. He really missed the point! 20 years ago it was a great place but it's gone down hill.
There are far nicer restaurants in the area to go and some less expensive. I don't mind paying but expect good food and service and at Junction 28 I did not get either.

Visited on a Wednesday night as a party of 13 for a birthday party. Between us we basically ordered most of the dishes off the menu and overall they were very good. A few stand outs were the Monster Pork Belly starter, the Pork Tenderloin main and the Chocolate Millfeuille desert.
The service was efficient and quick.
As it was a special occasion I thought the restaurant could have done something to mark that - even 1 glass of bubbly for the birthday girl?.
However overall very good.

Visited on Valentine's Day and will never return. The food was boring, overrated and tasteless. Very overpriced.
