The Exhibit, Balham (Bar / Restaurant)
“Maybe I went to a different restaurant to everyone else who has reviewed Exhibit but I am certain it’s the same place! A group of 15 booked a table for 8.15pm on Saturday. On arriving, the table was not ready. Half an hour later, we were invited back to the restaurant. The décor and atmosphere were good and first impressions that the menu was appealing. We started by ordering wine. The waitress took our wine order but 5 minutes later we were told that the Pinot Noir was out of stock – this would become a theme for the evening. Almost 20 minutes later our food order was finally taken. We were only then informed after ordering that the oysters & sirloin steak were also out of stock. Finally, after having to suddenly rush our decision, we settled back to enjoy the food. After another 20 minutes or so the starters began to appear. The garlic prawn special at over £7 consisted of four minute prawns surrounded by wilted lettuce. These were promptly sent back & a free bottle of wine was offered. The replacement prawn cocktail was the worst I have ever had. The squid starter was rubbery and the yellow fin tuna starter was hardly visible to the naked eye– none of this was cheap. The main courses were poor. The surf and turf was served with yet more prawns and not lobster. The steak was chewy. The green beans were under cooked and stringy (and extra). The meal came to £50 a head – west end prices for sub standard food & service. I would never consider eating in this restaurant again.”
