Booked Absurd Bird for dinner with a few friends on a recommendation from a colleague who had said the food was very good (including veggie options).
On arrival the restaurant is decorated in a quirky fashion to go along with the food which gives a pleasant atmosphere. It was reasonably busy when we arrived although certainly not bursting at the seams.
Eventually we ordered our food. Two sets of AB Waffles, Vaffles, Buffalo Wings and a few sides. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. About 45 minutes later our food turned up. The hanger was intense at this point.
The chicken with the AB Waffles was lukewarm at best and a bit dry. The waffles themselves and the gravy were quite nice. Disappointing for something I thought was a sort of signature dish.
The Vaffles were quite good according to my friend. The Spinach and Artichoke dip was delicious and we all had to try some.
The buffalo wings were probably the highlight for me, they were huge and also delicious. Certainly competing with Buck's as promised.
We went on to order dessert which also took much longer than expected. Milkshakes were just ok and the staff forgot a coffee as part of the order. When I eventually received the coffee it was so bitter it was undrinkable and it was kindly deducted from the bill.
Overall a bit of a mixed experience for us. There is certainly some good food on the menu but I'm not sure it was worth all the waiting around.
