Navajo Joe (closed), West End (Bar / Restaurant)
“Unfortunately this is one restaurant I cannot provide a good review for. I went there for a birthday party do - we had to pre-order our meals (which I think were from a Xmas menu at £28-something perhead!). Drinks at the bar before dinner were ok, nothing special, and a bit pricey considering they weren't THAT fab and I know the area well and where to get better priced decent cocktails ;-) Service: Average - as it should be - not worth the extra charge we had to give for party of 10! Food: The worst I've eaten in town. I have been to a fair few eateries in my time in London, and this is the worst I have to say. Food was lukearm/cold on arrival at table. Main course was also cold and hard and the meat in my enchillada, well, just imagine your worst piece of beef and that's it! Sorry folks, I wouldn't bother - there are much better places within 5 minutes of this place and for less money. My total bill was £40! Not worth it at all.”

“We had booked a table for dinner and we were greeted at the door and all seemed to be the start of a fabulous night in BBB. However, after the meeting and greeting at the door it all went downhill from then on. We were served by bar staff that did not know how to smile or be pleasant in any way and although it wasn’t busy and we were obviously waiting to be served, they took forever to serve us, looked at us and walked away! I waved the bar person back to us to be served. However, once drinks were served, we enjoyed the décor in the bar and then shortly after were taken to our table. At the table, we waited ages again to be asked for our drinks order. The food ordering was slightly less problematic and we waited for our food whilst enjoying a delicious champagne cocktail. When the food arrived, it did so in dribs and drabs and was plonked on the table in front of us and one of our party had to wait ages for his food while the rest of us had ours, but only in part. I ordered moules & frites and they forgot to bring the frites (which turned out to be chunky chips)! No apology made by waiting staff for the error, just a mere ‘oh yeah’! The meal was ok, nothing to brag about unfortunately, as that would have improved the whole evening. Once we had finished our meal, the waiter came and cleared the table, not without asking us to pass the majority of the plates to him as well as cutlery – did he want us to wash up as well? This particular waiter was also incredibly rude and moody”

Loved

"Found myself in the city just as the rush hour was starting, so decided to kill a bit of time until the trains began to empty. As one of the remaining pound-in-the-pot pubs in the area, this is the classiest..." 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?
