Olive Garden (Southfields)

Absolutely wonderful. The food was outstanding, as was the service and atmosphere. The only thing that let it down was the random after dinner chocolate which was foul. Still top class though.

Kazans Meze & Grill

What a let down this place was. From the outside it looks cheerful, modern and inviting but these expectations were certainly not fulfilled. I had visited before with some friends for a few drinks in the bar and decided to bring my girlfriend back for a romantic meal for our anniversary. It appeared that the staff had changed somewhat since my last visit, and instead of being greeted with smiles we felt as if we had annoyed our waitress just by turning up! Having being shuffled into a corner and offered the specials at such a speed I had to wonder whether the plump south african girl would actually stop to breathe, we were left for at least 40 minutes before we were visited again. As it had taken so long to be asked for our order, we decided to order drinks and food all at once in an attempt not to be forgotten again. Our starters arrived after about half an hour, but our drinks did not arrive until ten minutes after that, by which time my girlfriend decided to order water with her cocktail in order to get rid of the saltiness of her starter....needless to say, the water was forgotten but the overpriced cocktails were not. The rest of the evening was much of the same, and we left feeling dissapointed. I would invest in some friendlier and more competent staff and perhaps a little atmosphere.
