A night at the opera
This lush looking set is the interior of a restaurant, Sarastro in Drury Lane. I've often wanted to visit, as I'd heard that it was interesting and I do like the garden they've made in the street. However, my experience wasn't positive. The incredible interior is indeed exceptional, but I was more interested whether I could gnaw it to stave off hunger.
While the waiters were ok, the food service was the worst I've experienced for a long while. The restaurant was no more than 15% full, and our starters (which needed next to no preparing) took 45 minutes to arrive, and our main course another twenty after, despite the fact we told the waiter we were going to a show. As a result we had to rush our food, which was ok but ordinary and at £60 for two courses for two (with two glasses of wine) frankly very poor value. I won't rush back, and I will make this a review of Sarastro Restaurant, Drury Lane London to help Google find it. They add a 12.5% optional service charge, which at least gave me a good laugh. At least the manager had the decency to answer my question "What reason was there for the delays" with a straightforward "none, no reason".
