My partner and I had been fancying a spicy number for a while, and with little to choose from locally, we plumped for a spot as far West as we could and according to SqM that = Zing. Mid-week, a mixed clientele had just about filled the place by 7.45p.m. and those that left before us were soon replaced.
Shared mixed platter did more than just whet the appetite and soon began to satiate the tum. Worried that I’d eaten too much before five dishes were about to arrive, the waitress reassuringly suggested we relax and take our time. However, even in summer I don’t find sitting in a draught relaxing and we’d already moved once, so I didn’t quite appreciate their welcoming open door policy, but I would know where to sit next time. A lamb dish intended to be very spicy was by no means overpowered by the sauce, though I preferred the aromatics of a milder chicken stew. I’d also recommend the smoky aubergine and corn dish.
Overall an attractive menu offering a good selection of rice, breads and side dishes + drinks. I love the food at Amaya but here I much prefer the atmosphere. Service was saved by several of the staff being very pleasant and helpful, but a few were in need of further training with some emphasis placed on the smile perhaps.
