Mimino

Have you ever been asked to leave a restaurant and never to come again after complaining about the service to the owner? Would you like such experience? Mimino is the place to go.

Starters and one of the main courses arrived quickly. My girlfriend, being polite, waited for the other three main courses of other people (inc myself) at the table to arrive. After 30 minutes

of waiting, I asked the owner if there was any particular reason why main courses took so long to make and why they were not brought around the same time. The response was rather unexpected:

"If you want food and service, you should go to Gordon Ramsey's and not come here." My girlfriend asked if her already cold baby chicken could be replaced and brought together with the other main courses. The owner said that he was not serving us any more food, asked us to leave immediately and to never come back.

Although the food is ok, the concept of service at Mimino is absent. Instead of you being a client, the owner does

you a favour by feeding you (if you are lucky).
