“Best to avoid this restaurant”
Review of Glen Orchy House

Glen Orchy House
Ranked #25 of 38 Restaurants in Lerwick
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 5, 2013

As we walked into the restaurant, no one seemed to be there at first. After a longish wait, as soon as we sat down, we were rudely greeted by a waitress with an air of the owner (I assume she is a Thai as this is a Thai cuisine restaurant) who asked me a very uncomfortable personal question in a rudest manner in broken English. I regret that I put up with such bad manners and ate there.

Disappointed with my stay. Limited night time menu, not good enough. Catering more for contractors on Island rather than regular guests and it showed. Prices are also rising soon, pricing himself out of the market for a guest house

Book dinner for one night. To our surprise, the Thai chef answered the door. He looked tired and harrased as he showed to our table. My friend received the normal menu, but received the take away menu, which we took in our stride. We ordered our meal and waited a little while, probably due to the fact that one of the chefs was ill and the only chef there had to answer the front door as well as cook our meal. The manager of the hotel, Trevor, was too busy fussing over a group of women, who were confused over the Thai menu. The meal was pretty good after the long wait, however, as we tried to pay the manager, he insisted we pay VAT on a sit down meal, stating his accountant told him to do it!!! It took some convincing to inform him that we were not having a take-a-way and that we had in fact eating in his restuarant!

In between bizarre conversations with Trevor, we managed to pay the correct bill and got out the the restuarant, vowing never to return. This is one weird hotel. Stay here at your peril!
