It was my first trip to Lakeside Giraffe but I'm a regular to my local branch. Great food as usual and good service. The restaurant was quiet as it was a weekday so the food arrived very quickly. The edamame are delicious!

Came here for lunch at the weekend with my mum after a bit of shopping. She wanted to go here as she loves the teapots!

We both wanted the nacho chicken burger but this is only available on a Monday to Friday service which is clearly stated but shame they cant make it up anyway. We had the Mexican Chicken burger which was very similar, only difference being some of the fillings inside. The chicken was okay but slightly dry and flavourless. Chips were amazing, really moreish. I also had a kale smoothie which was lovely.

Nice interior and outside bit on the decking very nice. Just too much going on on the menu I would say. The food veers from English, American to Chinese and Malaysian!

Visited this restaurant a few times now and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Excellent food and drinks and each time the servers have been friendly, efficient and attentive. Will definitely be returning again and again.

We've eaten in a few giraffe restaurants now and sadly this is the first 'bad' one we have been to. The food is ok and reasonably priced but the service tonight was slow. I also hate restaurants that add on a service charge automatically to small groups - poor show.

visited on a saturday and it was busy however service was awful, repeatedly asked the same questions, drinks orders wrong. Food when it came was luke warm and thrown on the plate. didn't expect haute cuisine but did expect food to be delivered hot.
