Hi Sushi (Golders Green)

The food at Hi Sushi is good. We love going here- it is fresh and filling (the all you can eat buffet for 14.95 is a great deal).

The only negative to say is the fact that- and I absolutely detest this- service charge is automatically added to the bill. Okay 10% might no sound much but sometimes you dont want to pay £10-20 or WHATEVER for service. If you as a customer pay less than the "charged for" service charge the staff essentially have a go at you- extremely annoying as a customer and I find it quite rude and disrespectful. It is such an unpleasant way to end a lovely meal, an unnecessary argument with the waiting staff.

PLEASE do not automatically charge service charge. It is not meant to happen, it is not compulsory so dont put it there and happy customers will pay 10-20% service themselves if it is deserving.

Nevertheless, always tasty, filling sushi and (during dining/meal itself) nice staff.

Camino (King's Cross)

Ate here recently with a group of friends.. Won't be going back.

The food looked good, very good actually. However it generally tasted only ok, not delicious, and not worth the price advertised for. I ate the Chuleton Escoces and asked for a medium. It came out ridiculously late, after friends had practically finished their tapas, and came out ridiculously rare. I mean the soft flesh rare that has practically just been cut off a carcass. I sent it back, it was taken back with a bit of a huff, and it returned cooked through. Not what I what i wanted either, but fed up with the service and having been so hungry i just ate it. Unfortunately it didnt taste good either. Not tasty meat, i could have done better with a waitrose rump steak at home, cooked in about 3 minutes.

Finally a note about the service. Sorry but all the female waitresses need to learn to smile, be kind and helpful and provide good service. We were treated rudely, and service charge was (obviously) added on our bill. Not good. Need to improve customer service greatly...

The Piccadilly

This place needs to pick its game up a bit.

Ate there with friends using the 50% offer. Portions average size but the quality of the food again was only average. You could cook it at home, it would taste the same or better. Its disappointing to eat out and get only average food. (we had a selection of meals and they were all a bland). Advice- new chef, better cooks, new menu or something!! Better flavours needed.

I think we were conned out of money even with the offer, we were overcharged. I was with company so i didnt feel like raising the issue of the bill. So check yours before paying i guess!

Bento Cafe

The staff were VERY rude staff when i ate here with friends one weekday evening. My three friends and I were literally followed out of the restaurant and called back because although we had left a tip, it wasnt the exact 10% added to our bill.

Feeling extremely annoyed that we were treated and spoken to very rudely (in addition to the restaurant service being bad and the food not being very good either), i replied to the woman who had followed us out of the restaurant, that we were not obligated to leave a tip. She rudely argued that it was restaurant policy and we had to pay it.... it was about 70 pence for Gods sake!!!!

Very VERY rude staff and VERY bad service.

Not impressed at all.
