Charcoals Review

  • Rating Lunch with friends (Rating 3.0/5)
    Attended Charcoals, which we have used before. Previously always rated the food. But menu had changed with Chicken chaat replaced by chicken wings. My husband sent the chicken wings back, as they were cold (he assumed they had not been defrosted). The pakora was way below their normal standard, and their naan bread was awful (not like their normal naan's). Curry wasn’t up to their high standard either. We, all 4 of us were disappointed. My husband spoke to the server, when he paid the bill, and asked if they had changed owners. He explained about the chicken wings being unacceptable, the differences in naan bread etc, and asked if the chef had changed. The server who was nice, advised that he was a manager drafted in to the restaurant (as Ali was on holiday). He couldn’t comment on the food differences, or wouldn’t comment. He did apologise about the chicken, saying it is not frozen, but precooked and reheated, obviously not well enough. The chicken was greasy and unappetising, and I suggested, that chicken chaat should be reinstated in its place. So a disappointing meal all round.
