So, first time there last night (Sunday), very impressed. We ordered quite a bit as it's the first time and wanted to try a little bit of everything. We ordered yellow tail, fries and a preztzel to start, half a chicken with mash and a caveman pizza. The food came out really fast (which is normally a good thing) which left the small table for 2 over running with the large portions, they had to put another table beside us for the mains. Now I'm.. ... [Read on]

Will Pass on the Shared Seating

Well it comes as no surprise that you have done it again #328. As the last 3 times I have come to dine at your establishment the 'kind' garçon, has asked if it we would mind sharing a table. I fully understand the cultural tradition that has been accepted of sharing a table with the local flora and fauna of Shanghai in any of the many convenient noodle joints. Some of the best stories come of that. But is it really necessary for me and four of my friends to pay for the pleasure of sharing a table when you have zero occupancy downstairs at 4pm on a Sunday and available ..

Just Plain Good

No need for elaborate stories on this one. Went for brunch on Sunday and the food was awesome. Unique takes on classic items along with their own creations done really well. Food was amazingly good, little pricey but not insane. Service was pretty good until the place started filling up, but you got to expect a little confusion when 20 tables come in within half an hour. Still it was handled alright in my book. I'm definitely going to make this a regular place, would recommend making a reservation if you're planning brunch after 12, the place was getting packed.

Very impressed

So this place is really hard to find unless you know where this new development of bars and restaurants is, but it's worth the trip (we went a couple of weeks ago and I've just got round to writing this). It's really good value for money and I love the decor, I've never been to Turkey so can't comment if it's Turkish style, but it's really nice inside. The food is basically a tasting menu and is Fixe Price and well worth it. My only gripes is that no one explained what the food was and how long it would be between dishes, sometimes plates just sat there for what f..

Disappointment

I've always been a big supporter of Beef & Liberty and was really impressed with the decor after the big refurb when they changed the name. We hadn't been for a while and I had a real craving for a quality burger yesterday, We arrived around 6pm on Saturday evening, not too busy. The waiter at the door basically told us to find our own table (not their normal level of service) which we did. 10 minutes later no menu, however the people that cam after us were shown to a table and given menus right away. I had to stand up and get the menus myself. We decided what..

Excellent Brunch

I have been meaning to try Pasha for the longest time but it always escapes my mind when thinking of a place to eat. Well not anymore! Went for a brunch with friends to Pasha last weekend and while the waiter stumbled out of the gates with the ordering process, once the food arrived all was forgotten. We went for the Kahvalti, a traditional Turkish breakfast, which is almost healthy. Sliced cucumbers and peeled tomatoes are a staple, as are olives and cheeses. So far so good, right? Well, instead of butter and jam, there is was butter and honey. Not quite as good as the ..

Spot on, Tock's!

Went on a Sunday night, it was our second time there. I absolutely love the food, the atmosphere and the service. I wont write again about the delicious meat (BUT DO TRY THE REUBEN). Owner and GF chatty but not intrusive, good food, attentive service, good value for money. Downsides? Al-fresco seating is next to a major road and not really a pleasant option. But for eating inside, absolutely no complaints. A must try.

Henkes

Henkes is Aussie chef Craig Willis's homage to the other side of his family; it's his mother's maiden name. By his own account, he's extracted the DNA of his first namesake restaurant Mr. Willis and expanded upon it with a trattoria/cafe/wine bar concept. Expect Willis's distinctive brand of Oz-Med flavors in sharable portions with a heavy Italian influence. The place also has a cafe that serves pastries, fresh-squeezed juices, and sandwiches.
