Respond to Review of Vanilla Black
by Boo

Review: My friend booked us a table at Vanilla Black as a treat for me being veggie! Well, what a weird restaurant! We felt like we were stuck in a movie and we're about to be abducted by cult members any second! The decor was so so odd we couldn't stop trying to figure out what it supposed to be saying! Had this horrible 80's funeral home feel to it, not that I know what that looks like.. but is about as close a description I could think of! So we figured.. it must be so as the food will stand out even more, we wait for our meal. Well, disappointed is an understatement! Affected, pretentious, insidious food combinations. Dyed potatoes that had no flavour and just looked alien! It felt like they just made the menu up by picking ingredients from a deck of cards. Sounds harsh but we really didn't enjoy the experience at all. The salad was nice! The staff were reserved but fine. We had a complimentary shot of this turkish delight-minty-horseradishy drink.. which was the best thing we had (bar the wine!). I won't be recommending this restaurant to anyone unless you like over-priced, pretentious restaurants that weird you out! : ( [edit by staff] Updated from previous review on Sunday May 22, 2011

2 stars is generous.... but at least you got attentive service - we didn't even get that. no complimentary shots given with lunch either!
like you say the decor is decidedly odd - we couldn't figure it out
