Arkansas Cafe

A group of seven of us had lunch at Arkansas Cafe earlier this week. We agreed that it was the worst individual and collective 'restaurant' experience we had ever had.

It started with a surly, slow waitress who never managed to smile during the entire lunch and took forever to write down our orders. We ordered a range of dishes; all of the meat was more or less inedible. It had been pre-cooked, and then seemingly blasted in a microwave and finished off on the grill. It was appalling - dried out, chewy, horrid. The vegetable dishes were equally unappetising. One salad had plastic in it.

When we raised our concerns with the manager, she wasn't very concilliatory. She offered a discount. When the bill came it was around £68; she had graciously taken off the 'compulsory' 10% service charge and another £3. Big deal!

We were not prepared to pay that, and after another lengthly discussion paid less, though still way too much for what we got.

Our advice ... avoid this place like the plague!
