I am glad they added my suggestion of this place. I went to Bristol on my Stag do. We missed out on going for a meal on Saturday night, so we we went here for a Sunday lunch before heading back home.
WOW were we glad we did!.
You walk into this place, its nice and light, clean, friendly. It really has a pleasant atmosphere (Sunday 1pm) There are tables at the back away from the large screen showing a sport, and tables at the side, we chose to sit at some high tables on stools so we could order food and watch the Grand Prix. There were two menus available there was the standard menu available at lunch and evening, but for lunch they also had a 2 course or 3 course option with a choice of 4 or 5 items for each course.
The food has a Thai theme to it, (presumably because it is the cooks speciality, do not think this is going to be microwave precooked meals. It is NOT!)
After seeing the menu choices, I thought, well if they specialise in these types of food, I will have a Burger yet again, but instead of a random burger or a normal burger I would choose a Salmon Burger (I was expecting a bap with a small Salmon burger in and some side chips) When it arrived I was given fresh crunchy bread. It was a rectangular fresh crunchy bap of bread. A bit like a small Ciabatte is the best way to describe it, but the bread inside the crust was normal, not widely gapped like Ciabatte.
The salmon was a gorgeous salm steak that was as big as the bread (not like normal burgers being tiny in comparison) It had caramalised onions etc on top. It tasted gorgeous. The chips were really chunky proper chips served in their own little pot by the side of the burger. This was gorgeous and filling. I was only able to go for dsert when my friend had his Chocoloate Brownie square turn up, and I thought mmmmmm I must have it.
So after I ordered mine and it turned up I started on that, fresh chocolate brownie, we aren;t talking small , we are talking a huge brownie, bigger than you;d get in some of those "desert for 2 shares", covered in a hot chocolate sauce with fresh cream and chocolate ice cream. Gorgeous.
The quantity of food here is amazing as well as the pure quality. It shows how freshly cooked this food was, because even though we ordered at the seperately we still rodered at the same time, and the food did come out very seperately, all hot, all perfect. I am not sure if we had put this as 1 order if the meals would have arrived at the same time. But it was a pleasnt relaxing, recovery lunchtime and we didn't mind.
A couple of friends had the 3 courses, the starters came out with plenty of food, nearly the same size as the same order as a "light bite". They are cooked properly with all the spices needed, not in a really English way or ladelling on spicy sauce.
This place is a lovely place for a lunch, I would go here again, I thoroughly recommend it. I do not know what its like at night, but it still strikes me as thought the place would be a lovely place to start the evening off with a meal.
Hopefully other people will be able to add to this review, maybe of the drinks available, and night time to make this a good rounded review of the whole place.
