Was a short wait to get the table cleared and cleaned and menus distributed. My friend Rachel had to stick her head inside the restaurant and ask if it was table service or whether we should order at a counter. However after she did this service was efficient enough. Drinks seemed slow to arrive (we ordered about 3 rounds) but when they came it was all without error so probably a delay and backlog or orders at the bar. I guess it was peak time.
The four dishes we had were a fettucine carbonara, hokkien noodles, grilled chicken foccacia and a lamb skewers dish with a salad, wedges, tzatsiki and pitta bread from the specials board.
Hokkien noodles were tasty and went down well as did the foccacia sandwich. I enjoyed the lamb skewers although as a plate there were hits and misses - the meat was tender, the pitta was soft, doughy and pillowy so really yummy. I like chewy, doughy bread rather than the dry crispy stuff. The wedges were a little soggy and could have done with some seasoning like the eggplant chips as could the tzatziki and the salad had generous chunks of feta.
The pasta was overcooked but the sauce was tasty enough so again hit and miss. Funny that the noodles and pastas were so flavoursome to the brink of being just a touch away from over seasoned yet other things were very bland.
Would I return? Well possibly if the same circumstances prevailed and hunger, thirst gets the better of us and we happen to be stood in front of it and there's a good spare table...
