Restaurant | "A taste of Thailand!"

Sukhothai Thai Restaurant Photo, Gravesend, United Kingdom
Quote:
I was very fortunate enough to organise a meal for 30 odd members of my family and close friends at the Sukhotai restaurant in Gravesend to celebrate my 50th Birthday. I had gone in a couple of times to do a recce with my daughter to taste the food and see how the staff were before deciding that yes this is where I wanted to have my special meal. I asked the owner if he could do it but he said they are closed on a Sunday but when I told him that I would have enough guests to fill the small restaurant they agreed to open up especially for my birthday.We asked them if they could rearrange the seating so that all the tables were more or less together so that no one felt left out and this they...Read More

Maggie's Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Excellent food and reasonably priced."

Quote:
I have been using Maggies restaurant for quite a few years now. What it is not is a place of fine dining but what it is is a place where you can get decent big portions of well cooked homely food at a very reasonable price.The owner Maggie who originates from Ireland can often be seen in the restaurant serving her guests. The best meal of the day for me is the breakfast which costs Five pounds and includes as much as you want to eat, sausages, bacon, eggs scrambled fried or poached, fried slice, Baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding, hash browns, chips and they constantly refill your cup with coffee or tea. You really must try her Irish Mustard it is sure to leave you surprised!...Read More

Hotel | "Afternoon tea"

Quote:
I took two friends with me for afternoon treat when we met in London during the summer months. They had no idea where I was taking them so it was all kept hush hush. We have visited Buckingham palace and walked around to No 1 London the Duke of Wellingtons home, Apsley house. After coming out of there we walked along the road and as we approached the hotel I casually said oh lets see if we can find a burger bar. I could see immediately their faces dropped!I said oh you look disappointed and they replied oh please not a burger bar. I said well in that case its a good job i reserved afternoon tea in here then!We went into the hotel and were shown around to the tea room which was really...Read More

Pizza Express

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Nice Pizza horribly noisey."

Quote:
I went along with some friends one Saturday evening before we went to the cinema to watch a film. This type of restaurant is not my usual type of place to go and eat. We turned up just after 6PM and the place was crowded. The building is a renovated bank so the ceilings are very high and it echos like mad. We were shown to a table but on the basement floor as opposed to the main floor . I thought this would be better but no it was not at all there were kids walking around the restaurant whose parents clearly could not be bothered keeping them in check.The waiters brought us some drinks we had previously ordered upstairs and he also brought the menu. I am usually not very good at orde...Read More
