your comments review this restaurant and win a bottle of champagne

we visited after an elapse of years and found the usual combination of tom yum style soup with minced pork, funky fried starters, which were quite tasty and more-ish. they added in peking duck with pancakes which is nice enough but it would have been better to have more taiwanese nibbles.

however these were followed up by mains which were all nothing other than meat cooked in a generic variety of stir-in sauces, all with huge quantities of chopped onion, as the 'chef's choice' on a saturday night. no noodles or rice dishes.

this was disappointing.

don't know if the 'good chef' has headed home to taipei, or he's found uncle ben's is a satisfactory substitute for cooking decent taiwanese food for a british audience.

but not us. i guess we are more exacting than most ... one of our party is a restaurant manager, another worked in chinese restaurants for years while another still is from mainland china, so they know that of which they speak.

no complaints about the service and the ambience which remain good.

overall, we thought it average at best; for £27.50 pp you do expect a bit better.

Tamarind and Thyme

Tamarind and Thyme

Saturday, May 12, 2012 - A trio of delicious deep fried morsels then were placed on our table. Taiwanese fried chicken was beautifully crisp and dry and dusted with five spice - I could have hoovered the entire portion for all three of us. Crispy Tiger Prawns were served with salad cream which always weirds me out a bit but then I end up enjoying it. The Deep Fried French Beans were nothing short of amazing. They had been lightly battered, fried and then tossed with fried chillies, garlic and spring onions; they were incredibly moreish.
