The staff were most apologetic.

And the caterpillar? Did he/she express any remorse?

Only had one truly good meal out since I arrived. That was at Carnevale at JBH.

Helped by good company, a decent (but massively overpriced) chianti and the fact they had authentic prosciuto.

Ratings please.

Have heard good and bad things about it which makes me apprehensive. Especially as I have eaten a few times in the GR restaurant in Chelsea and it was the most mind blowing culinary experience of my short life.

No he/she did not. He/she simply told me to sod off and get my own burger.

The ME Good Food Guide.

Five stars is very good
One star is a straight case of Dehli Belly

How about we mark for:
Food quality
Value for Money
Service
Ambience

I'll add a couple of reviews tommorrow but feel free to get the ball rolling.
WAGAMAMAS:I know it's not Middle Eastern cuisine and they do have branches in London. But the food is amazing, fresh and organic. It's in the Crown Plaza SZR.

Food Quality: 5
Value for Money: 3.5
Service: 5
Ambience:5 (depending on your scene..I wouldn't recommend for a romantic date, but great with the mates)
