The Pad of Covent Garden

I ate here with a few friends and felt compelled to write this review. Being a restaurant in busy Covent Garden tourist area i was appalled by just about everything in this restaurant.

Firstly the tables are so squished together that the waiting staff can't access the ends of the table. the menus are ridiculously large both in size and lists of food. Advertised as a Greek restaurant with a few Greek dishes on the menu but loads of pizza, pasta, steak and whatever else they can fit on there.

We chose Greek food as is advertised. Hummus and fish roe dip was awful - pink processed goo on a plate with a pita bread sliced for £3.50. Moussaka had a spongy (cheese?) topping and looked and tasted like it had emerged from a microwave 5 minutes earlier after being cooked to a blackened pulp in an oven earlier in the day. nobody at my table was happy with their food.

Atmosphere is cold and service was overseen by an angry looking man and several staff who were very clumsy, unhelpful and had poor or no English.

we left hungry..and depressed
