Very friendly staff and delicious food. The lunch set menu is great value and the dishes included are those that I would choose from the A La Carte menu.
Downsides were:- we were offered bread, which never arrived - we ordered the lunch wine menu but the staff forgot. We had to remind them after we had already started on our starter courses. They then asked us for ID having already served us cocktails. - we asked for 1 lamb dish to be cooked medium/rare but they cooked all of our dishes medium/rare. We ordered the same mains so any difference would have been evident had there been any.
I don’t think my experience lived up to expectation.

Great place for delicious pub grub. Went on a Thursday night for a perfectly cooked steak, hand cut chips, side vegetables and bearnaise sauce. All this followed by a sticky toffee pudding and washed with a glass of red. At £10 a head on a groupon deal, this was excellent value. Located very close to Ham Common, nice atmosphere inside, bingo in the pub upstairs and veyr friendly and attentive waiting staff. Would definitely visit again and would recommend highly.

This place is worth a visit. Open planned kitchen and an open grill, friendly service, delicious Turkish food and a pleasant surprise at the final bill. Recommend the lamb liver and grilled Adana kebab.

Lahore Karahi offers a good range of Pakistani cuisine and the lamb biryani, in particular is worth a try. Formica tables and the evidence of canned spinach and other boxed masala mixes visible in the kitchen from the side streets are synonymous with the price. This place has all the typical asian cheap restaurant traits, including food that is laden with oil, water jugs and cups on tables, open til late and a TV screen for cricket or bollywood visuals. The real reason to come for is the fairly authentic food that is both delicious and satisfying.
P.s. for a yum lamb biryani that I rate more than the Lahore Karahi version, try this from a chef in Mumbai, Suresh Nair who posted his recipe on Jamie Oliver’s Forums website. My boyfriend made it for me and it is out of this world!

The Tree House is actually in South Croydon and is not marked correctly on the map. It is on a stretch of road lined with other alluring restaurants but the tree house offers something slightly different with its wooden rustic feel, twinkly lights, bric-a-brak fireplace feature and bright garden. The food on the chalkboard menu is also absolutely delicious and with a £10 for a starter and a main offer from Mon – Thurs it is a great weekday treat. There is a good, exiting range of choices including interesting vegetarian options. The service is also efficient and cheery.
The main reason I visit over and over again though is because the want for my next fix of Sticky Choccy Pudding never leaves me. I go back and devour my warm, hulking brown square, thinking I can get it out of my system but the next day it is still the only thing I want for dinner. I tried to make my own version at home and it was nice, but never the same! The Tree House is a top notch regular dinner haunt, definitely worth a visit.

My sister and I booked a table for the lunchtime offer of 2 courses for £22.00 in May 2010 via www.lastminute.com. The setting and décor is very artsy and modern and quite pleasant. The other bar guests look young, hip and trendy and this creates a cool vibe. For our meals we chose chicken on lemongrass skewers and beef cooked two ways for starters and for our main courses we had oriental salmon with mushrooms and Cuban style barbeque chicken. All the dishes were interesting in the modern combination of Asian and Latin flavours but I came away disappointed overall, mostly because my salmon was glaringly overcooked. It oozed the creamy goo, which seeped from between every flaky layer in my fillet: a sure sign of having been overcooked. As a result, my salmon was actually dry and chunky. My other criticism was that it was far too big and overall, it tasted quite boring. My sister’s chicken was far better but overall I expected much more, especially given the normal price a meal. For this price, there are far better meals to be had.
