Respond to Review of Sacred Chow
Review: We ate here twice. The first time, we shared tapas amongst three people. The olive seitan and the special curried seitan were delicious; the 'meatballs' were ok and the orange bbq seitan was disappointing. We had a pretty decent charlie brown smoothie. The soup was amazing. The desserts, on the other hand, were pretty lousy. We nearly came back for breakfast one day but they weren't open when they said they would be and the menu didn't hugely inspire me. Still, we gave it one more try, and unfortunately our second experience was very disappointing. I ordered the olive seitan, and this time it wasn't a patch on the previous time. The portion was smaller, with no salad garnish and not enough sauce, leaving a small, dry, bland dish which cost far more than it was worth. The salad I ordered was better, but came drowning in sauce - it would have been so much nicer if they had put the dressing on the side rather than saturating my nice salad with it. My partner ordered a 'hero' sandwich, which is basically tapas in bread (pretty much every tapas dish got recycled as a hero), and his meal didn't have all the promised trimmings. No opportunity to complain though, as they had only one waitress for a packed restaurant (and this was before 6pm - they had a huge group booking and didn't lay on any extra wait staff). The decor is really nice, but the food and service are variable, and I probably wouldn't go back.
