Oh dear, what a terrible experience...we entered the restaurant and were asked to sit upstairs, then were led into an empty back room. Considering the first room wasn't full I asked if we could sit there instead..."what difference does it make?" I was asked...note to leong staff...if it makes no difference then why ask?
We ordered some food asking to share some dumplings for a starter, these came after the mains (which arrived suspiciously quickly). The bamboo rice (which looked like a sauce of some kind) sat on our table with no explanation until we said we were waiting for it...fortunately a friendly customer explained what it was.
Bad service, sub-par food, no itemised bill: never going back.

My girlfriend used Jessops in Angel recently to develop a 120 film from a Diana F+ Lomograph Camera. All that I can say is that the service was terrible from start to finish. To start with it seemed to take forever just to get served, but if customers take a long time there is nothing the staff can do, so we let them off there. They took the film, ran it through their computer and told us that it would take 10 business days and would cost £10. They told us (and wrote on the collection receipt) to come back any day after 18/2/2011.
We went back on 19/2 and this is where it all went wrong. We waited for a long time (again) to be served only to have the person searching amongst the photo envelopes for a long time. He spoke to a manager who (ignoring us) told him it would probably be in on Monday or Tuesday. The assistant then repeated this to us.
Not trusting their judgement we waited until Thursday (24/2) before going back. We were acknowledged much quicker this time but again went through the endless search for the photo envelope, after a few minutes searching we were told that they were going to have to call the processing company. After failing to get through our number was taken and we were called later. They said that the photos were being sent soon, I asked that they call when the photos arrived so that we didn't have to waste time again.
On the Sunday (27/2) we happened to be in Angel and thought we would try even though we hadn't been called and sure enough they were in! We took them home and on looking through them have to say it is one of the worst printing jobs I have seen. The photos were not trimmed at all with parts from the next and previous photos on all the borders. Shoddy service, long wait, bad job.

Beautiful food for breakfast, lunch or dinner...though more expensive for dinner. Always busy, so don't be surprised by a 20 minute wait...rest assured its worth it.

Very friendly staff who will talk you through every step of the process of setting up an aquarium. If you have any problems they will hear you out and offer solutions and even refunds. These guys are very modest but know their stuff. Check them out (please note that I have only bought fish and aquatic life from them).

Heavy and uninspiring food which is difficult to get through as there is simply too much of it; I would have preferred less prepared with better quality ingredients. The service was fine but the music (as far as I remember) was too loud and irritating.

Very, very good food for lunch or tea time baked at their 202 Upper Street store. Huge selection of cakes, pastries, breads and sandwiches and well worth checking out for lunch. Coffee is a bit average however, which has let it down a bit in my times there...so for *** they need to make a better cappuccino.

The food here is all vegan so if you are a strict vegetarian you are going to be in for a treat...in fact, forget that, if you are someone who like s quality food you are going to be in for a treat because the mixed plates are both great value, very filling and absolutely delicious.
The place also serves alcohol and is open until late so it's worth checking out in the evenings as well.

I've had some excellent coffees from here and some coffees which were not so excellent, so, although not a complete lottery, your flat white or cappuccino might not always be completely up to scratch. I really want to give this place **: the surroundings are nice, the prices are excellent, the service is brilliant; but they need to start delivering consistently excellent coffee for me to do so.

I get the Tapas here every time I visit, and each time I am always surprised by how full I am by the end of it. The staff are friendly and service is very good (though make sure you finish your food!), the prices are spot-on, and the sangria is a must.
Check it out and take your friends.
