Satay Bar, Brixton (Bar / Restaurant)
“Last night my partner and 2 friends went there for the first time in 8 years. Before we even entered, my partner was asked by the burly bouncer (who himself had a hat on) to remove his cap, only to walk in and see three other people inside with their caps on! The waiter then proceeded to show us to a table for 2 when there were 4 of us. After waiting 20 mins to order, we waited another 20 mins for our drinks (which weren't even cocktails.) The starters arrived and my partner and I had ordered a Satay platter to share. The squid was not cooked, and the lamb was so tough it looked (and tasted) like it had been cooked many night's before and reheated. The prawn satay was one tiny prawn holding on for dear life to the satay stick, also bizarrely there was no peanut sauce in sight. For the main course the four of us shared a very chewy 'Lazy Beef', a Snapper that was covered in onions and peppers with no taste whatsoever, a Lamb Massaman which was really oily and tasteless and a Thai papaya salad which consisted of shredded lettuce, carrots, 3 beans and a sprinkling of papaya drowned in sweet chilli sauce. I had to ask for extra limes and fish sauce as it was so sickly sweet. The fish sauce finally arrived after 2 waiters telling me that the kitchen did not have it(!). As everyone knows fish sauce is a staple ingredient in Thai/Malaysian food. Overall we were all extremely disappointed, especially when the bill included service charge, and the waitress had spilt the fish ”

Loved

"Had the best Taglioni Salmone, lovely wine with it, great family friendly atmosphere. Free glass of Prosecco on arrival because it was Father’s Day. Excellent pricing and we were fitted in seamlessly despite..." Which venue is this?

Hated

"Girls were rude demanding tips for a poor show. If this is the best club London has to offer don't bother going anywhere else in the city." Which venue is this?
