I went as part of vegetarian week and was excited about the Thali plate of 10 vegetarian samplers on a plate with rice. It took a while for the waitress to take our order but she was pleasant enough. I ordered a glass of Prosecco from the menu and was told they no longer did it. I ordered the Thali and was told it was part of a vegetarian week special menu. She brought our drinks and starters and cleared our plates. When the mains came the waitress explained that they'd run out of the Thali that I'd ordered and instead she had brought lamprie for me which is a dish containing fish and chicken in a banana skin - she didn't come back and tell me it wasn't available or check with me if I'd wanted it and just went ahead and got it as an alternative. It was such a waste of food because I clearly couldn't eat it. I then heard her arguing on the phone with the kitchen about why it was being sent back - she tried to keep it quiet but it was all a bit unnerving. I picked at a side dish waiting for my main to arrive while my dining companion ate his dinner. We ate at different times so it wasn't exactly a dining experience. I certainly wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend it to friends. It could have been an off day but I'm not willing to risk it again.
