We were a group of 9 who booked in advance after having several recommendations to go to White Trash. We had a terrible time which I could turn into a big long story but I'll try and keep it short and to the point.

It started going wrong when we annoyingly had to queue outside and be let in two at a time. Once inside we were told to gather together again so ended up being pushed into a corner and told we were in the way.

They didn't have our reservation but fortunately they were able to find us a table. Unfortunately it wasn't big enough for our whole party though so we were squashed together again.

We booked for 9pm and arrived hungry so ordered a plate of nachos to share whilst we read the menu properly and ordered. The nachos turned up at 10.15pm, an hour and fifteen minutes later.

One half of the table received their main course at 11pm. The other half fifteen minutes later, by which time the first lot had pretty much finished eating. We therefore ended our first day in Berlin eating in shifts and finishing our dinner at nearly midnight.

Strong complaints were made to our waiting staff who told us that the manager was too busy to talk to us but offered us a round of shots as compensation. That wasn't acceptable so we waited for the manager to be less busy. Her attitude when she did reach us was rude and dismissive and she actually walked away half way through one of our party talking to her.

We had planned to go on to a club but by the time we had been dismissed by the manager it was so late and some of our party were so incensed by the bad service that instead we had a row with each other in the street. We were of course laughing about it the next day but that doesn't detract from the fact that rather than being the number 3 entertainment spot in Berlin, White Trash is actually an over-hyped, over-full, American theme bar with too loud music, bad lighting, bad service, rude staff and a sense of entitlement that they haven't earned.

The next night we went to Austria on Bergmannstrasse and had the opposite experience. I'd suggest you don't bother with White Trash and go and get yourself a bit of fun Germany and an enormous schnitzel instead.

I have never experienced such bad service. Everything was so late arriving to the table, and then any follow up discussions to why, were just ignored. Management handled the whole situation terribly. At least it lived up to it's name 'TRASH'....Horrified of this experience in such an otherwise lovely city!

A very special place, great music, friendly staff and even better food. I had an original octopus burger - totally enjoyed it. Reservation needed, especially in the weekend. An entry fee is to be paid.

Expected something incredibly Berlin and cool having heard amazing things about this place. Got there and it was like a tgi Fridays. Reasonably good cocktails though
