Well London Sizzler will be a crashing downer to all your high expectations.
I for one had a real time experience of that one. Me and my group of friends went there to try out this much coveted restaurant. It started out pretty well, I had an appetizer, Chilli Paneer, my friend decided to go with Lamb Kaboobs.
Later on our group expanded so we asked for another table. They lied on my face informing me there are no tables, so I pointed out an empty table. They rather grudgingly shifted us. This is where the horror began.
I ordered a main course, Malai Kofta with rice. This being my favorite vegetarian dish, I have tried it in a few Indian restaurants, all which boasted none of the greatness that London sizzler boasted.
After about an hour later (yes we were there forever) the dinner finally arrived
To my disappointment it tasted just plain bad. It was too sweet and did not have any salt or spice for that matter. It was just veggies floating in butter syrup. All the other dishes were palable. Including the chicken. The “Spice” factor seem to be their cost-cutting agenda.
I started feeling sick, so I tried to excuse myself, asking for my cheque. The waiter rather rudely informed us “We do not split cheques”. I tried to get some help from the manager, and guess what; he was ruder and informed us to write down our calculations of what we eat behind the bill. (which took forever to arrive) . When complaining,about their service he told us to not come back and they do not care. ( YES! You heard that right and it’s a quote, I got witness)
The cheque was $33 (No alcohol) they added 18% Gratituty. Yes it is compulsory that you tip their bad service. (wonder why?!)
I continue to have bad allergic reactions and throwing up all Friday and Saturday, when my doctor informs me I had seafood. (I am badly allergic to seafood). Of-course the paneer chilli was fried in the same oil as shrimp.
DO NOT GO THERE, unless you want to pay for your own nightmare! Never going back and would advice everyone I know to stay away!!
Shehnai which is a standard buffet service has better food and service and you pay them $10 for all you can eat!!
