Our overall experience at Hix restaurant was very average. Driven by disappointing food and lacklustre service…but hey, the bar is cool.
We arrived for a 9:30pm booking, and we could already see by the line of people that they were overbooked. They were running late and asked us to have a drink at the bar while we wait for our table. The bar is very cool, small and intimate with an art deco feel.The music was also laid back and jazzy. But with no seats left we stood standing in the middle of the room, twiddling our thumbs wondering what to do. We eventually got the attention of a waitress who took our orders. The cocktails were decent, the atmosphere great and environment nice (if you can get a seat.)
Our waitress finally called us up into the restaurant, and we finally got seated at 10pm. We ordered an entree to share which was the special, the dumpling prawns; which sounded nice, but after waiting 30 minutes for it, we were disappointed to see that it came out as deep fried prawns, with batter so thick and lathered, that's all you could taste. It's the kind of grub you would get at a takeaway fish shop. We were starving by this stage so really hoping that the mains would be great. My goose salad was incredibly average, and my fiancés steak was good and cooked well, but came with nothing else. The highlight of my food was the side dish of cauliflower cheese…
All in all, this restaurant was ok, certainly not worth the reviews it has been getting. More style then substance. If you go, I recommend the bar instead or stick to the steaks. But if you want great british cuisine with loads of flavour and good value for money go to Tom's kitchen! By far the leader in this british genre of restaurants.
