TERRIBLE! Initially went there on a date night with my partner and the food was cold , to make it worse my partner was then ill later on in the early morning of the next day . I chased this up with their manager called Louise and she assured me they would investigate after a whole month plus I was chasing them constantly and they just failed to get back to me . When I eventually got in contact with the main manager she dismissed me and told me she was busy dealing with customers . I then later on got an email of a report that coincidentally was apparently made by a food safety officer on the day I called.
This report said they were basically not sure whether or not the food poisoning came from their restaurant . After that we had nothing back no apology , nothing the manager didn't even call me back all she did was forward a report that apparently took place when on the day I called which was a month plus later , that is when I knew I was being messed around and the report was not legitimate. The manage dismissed me like I wasn't a customer , did not even bother to call up for a follow up , did not even try and at least call up to confirm I received the report or to ask if I had any further queries , absolutely disgusting that my partner had to go the hospital and miss days off work only to get a report stating that they weren't not sure if he got food poisoning from the restaurant .
As a returning customer I have learned my lesson to never go to a bird restaurant again or even recommend it .AVOID!
Can't comment on the burgers but for gluten free fried chicken this place is amazing. Service can be slow/confused, but I've been a bunch of times and the staff have always been nice and the food has been tasty. It's not super cheap, but for me it's a great place for a quick tasty meal.
Well I honestly can't recommend this place. I went last week and ordered a bacon and cheese (chicken) burger, some cheesy Korean fries and a beer my friend also had a burger fries and beer and the total bill come to just over £40 so it's not the cheapest diner I've ever been to. The decor is quite cool and it seemed fairly busy, which is why we went in, but don't be fooled by this - the food certainly doesn't justify it. The burger was not horrible, but its fairly bland taste was covered by by too much salt. There are much better chicken burgers to be had in London than this. The chips on the other hand, were really awful - they were cold for one and covered in so much sauce they were practically swimming it in. And as for the beer, watch out when you order it on tap - it doesn't come in full pint glasses, but rather two thirds of a pint. All in all, a bland burger, soggy, cold chips and a stingy serving of beer for over 40 quid doesn't exactly make a satisfying experience - I won't be going back!
I doff my hat to anyone who can eat The Original Waffle Burger in one sitting. I nearly passed out eating half of it: it's just so deliciously rich, chewy and hot. I was hangover and had to sleep instantly afterwards. I'm yet to try any of the other bad boys on the menu but I'm confident it will cut the mustard.
