I've been a fan of Big Easy on King's Road for years. When they announced the new restaurant in Covent garden I like many others was excited. Great location, great food. Or so I thought. What a disappointment! This is like a completely different restaurant, with a different vibe and different food.
The food was oh so disappointing. We had the appealingly entitled “Bar.B.Q Blow out” and “Taste-O-Rama”. All the meat was incredibly dry. The succelent, moist ribs you get at King's Road were missing. The chicken arrived stone cold! The menu says some rubbish about the food being slow roasted. Apparently that means the food will arrive “warm, not piping hot”. I wasn't aware that a slow roast oven is not hot. Anyway, is that a reason to serve chicken cold? We ended up smothering all the meat with barbecue sauce which improved it only a little. and the fries are appalling. Tasted like oven ready, but not as good.
This is destined to be an additional toursit trap in Covent Garden. I'm sure that no amount of poor reviews will dent its popularity. This place is even worse than its competitor with the three initials and the last working day of the week in its name. I think it's obvious that I will not be returning.
