I read the reviews about this place, but still bought the Groupon voucher and went with an open mind. Sometimes there's no pleasing some folk and I can always see the best in things....
Anyhow, took husband and 2 hungry teenagers that could eat a scabby horse, and I have never knowingly ever left anything on my plate apart from the pattern- usually!
I can honestly say this has been the worst meal of my entire life - I can only think that the people who have rated this above 1 star had no taste buds, were drunk (no offence!) or have shares in the place.
BLAND, BLAND, BLAND. I could not tell what I was eating as nothing had any taste OR texture. I started with chicken (if you say so) blini that left an aftertaste of grease, and then minced beef and rice wrapped in cabbage leaves. Well: - the filling had the texture of mashed potato and had a taste that could have been dog food, as it wasn't any minced beef like I'd ever known. The cabbage (I swear to god) seem to dissolve like a thin ravioli would after being boiled for too long. Others in my group had the lamb rissoles - and my son said 'what meat was this again....?'
My favourite course always, is the pudding course. Pancakes, ice cream or dish of the day- we had each of them- but apart from the ice cream, the rest was left. The 'dish du jour' I had, tasted (yes really!) of apples, but I couldn't tell u what it was...as, with everything else, it was just stodge.
Flat cokes and definitely NOT the DIET cokes we'd asked for. I'd like to say the service made up for it ... Well I'd like to say that, but can't. 'Personality by-pass' says it all.
Looking around, I've never seen such miserable clientele, probably wanting it to be over! I'm sorry to write something like this, but don't want anyone to suffer as we did, and I'm also miffed that we came home and had cheese on toast for supper!
Even If you are ever offered FREE dinners there - its too much to pay!
