Advantages: Great pizzas
Disadvantages: Service, waiting time, no free salad bar :-(
Ahhhh Pizza Hut. I remember when I was a kid (ahh the good old days) if I was really well behaved (very rarely) my mum would treat me and my little brother and sister to Pizza Hut. I remember getting ready quicker than Usain Bolt running the 100 metres. Wham, bam I'm ready Mam!! The experience does days were great atmosphere, great food and great service. Felt like a really good place to eat.
Now in 2010 (not so kiddish now :-() and I still visit the place now and again but it seems to have lost it mojo.
When you enter the premises you are welcomed by the tongue wagging smell of delicious pizza. You then wait until a member of staff arrives and asks you how many of you there are. From my experience I used to get served quite quickly but now I tend to look around to see if anyone is actually there! (Must be the place I go to). You are then taken to your seats and given a menu. From the looks of things the Pizza Hut I went to hadnt changed since the 90's and it also seems like that with the ones I go to but somehow it still works for this day and age.
The menu consists of starters like chicken wings, garlic bread (with or withour cheese) and also the salad counter. Pretty much the same and nearly all pizza places.
Now with the main course you obviously get the pizzas and they have loads of different types. You also have a range of different bases from deep pan, thin (Italian) crust, stuffed crust and the cheesy bites (a favourite of mine). You can also opt to make your own and I believe your can choose up to 5 toppings and anything more than that you will have to pay extra.
Now not so recently (2008, changed thanks to davidbuttery) they had included a pasta range to the menu and there was talks of changing the name to Pizza to Pasta Hut. I think I have only seen one change name! Well along with the pizzas they now also have a few pasta dishes to pick from. They are:
Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni
Salmon Pasta Bake
Tomato & Mozzarella Mezzaluna
Tagliatelle all Carbonara
Chicken & Mushroom Bake
(Help from Pizza Hut Website)
Along with this new pasta range they also hav a new base to add to the family, The Tuscani. This is not like the above mentioned pizza bases and flavours and have the following:
Prosciutto & Rocket
When your done stuffing your face with your favourite pizza you can then go on (if you have space) to dessert. They consist of Cheesecake, Profiteroles, Chocolate Fudge Cake, Tiramisu, Dessert Shot Trio (shots of ice cream) and my personal favourite the Ice Cream Factory. Ahh the days when I would overfill the bowl, put every sprinkle and sauce available and then only manage a spoonful, then get an earful from my mum!
Overall the food tastes great and can only be described by me as Pizza Hut. Even though pizza is pizza, the taste of pizza hut is way different fron the others. Must be the dough and ingredients they use.
With so many pizza places now out and about they also have deals going on in the restaurant and also as takeaway, check out the flyers! I would recommend the buffet! :-D
Overall experience of Pizza Hut was quite sad as it seems to me that there is only about 2-3 people working in them. One to cook the food and the others to serve. It also seems to me that its on the decline as my fond memories of the Walworth Road one has closed down and when I do find one it looks like it closed, because theres no one there.
If in doubt go Takeaway!
Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy it.
Summary: Great place for pizza but isn't like it used to
