Slurp (Streatham)

After a break from this place for a few years, we fancied a look-in for 2008. We ate there yesterday, and to say we were disappointed is an understatement.

Firstly, the staff were more interested in the football than us.

Secondly, the food was dismal. Recommendation to all of you - don't try the squid, or teriyaki chicken/spring onion on squewers. The squid resembled silly string squirted onto a plate - what was supposed to be deep-fried, was limp, off-white bits of bland rubber. No seasoning, no nothing. We sent it back.

The chicken teriyaki was another joke - pinkish 1cm cubes of chicken and grilled spring onion squeezed onto a skewer, with some sweet, brown watery sauce drizzled on top of it all.

Mains - the rice was dry and way overcooked, my noodles were limp and overdone, without any taste. My duck with ginger and pineapple was actually sweet'n'sour duck. My wife's red thai curry was more yellow, and contained more chilli powder than anything else.

We were disgusted with the food. Tasteless, dull, and uninspiring. Waste of our money

Thanks but no thanks
