Shamoli Review

  • Rating Ok food, very poor service (Rating 1.8/5)
    4 of us visited Shamoli for the lunch buffet on a Saturday afternoon. 1st impressions were unfortunately not good. We weren’t greeted by the staff and they seemed disinterested that we were there. We were literally the only customers in the place which was very odd considering this was lunch time on a Saturday in the middle of the city. This would usually steer me away from a restaurant and certainly a buffet (as the food won’t be replenished often). Once we were seated and had ordered our drinks we hit the buffet. Thankfully this is where things improved. The selection on offer was fairly good and most options were tasty, with the Thai Veg being a fav of mine. There was nothing outstanding but nice enough for a cheap lunch. Our plates were not taken away after finishing a course so they were either reused or put on the table next to us. We weren’t asked how the food was or offered to put in another drinks order during the entire time. I also had to go to the bar to ask for the bill. The poor service definitely lets this place down and none of our party would consider coming back.
