My favourite Sunday lunchtime venue is no more. Gone are the wonderful large choice buffet & colourful surroundings. In it's place a buffet that had minimal choice, tasteless food in stark minimalistic surroundings. I was told on booking that despite a change of name the...More

On entering the restaurant (now called Kinkao) it has the 'wow' factor - very authentic, charming Thai décor with a stunning riverside view. After that it was all downhill. 'Greeted' by who I assume was the manager, very surly couldn't even raise a smile. We...More

I've lived in the Docklands for 13 years and been here frequently over the years...however it's noticeable that the quality of food and service has deteriorated gradually. Sad to say that the crowds that use to come here have also slowly dwindled away. Food on...More
