SquareMeal Review of Blind Tiger

It’s an appealing idea: a secret, dimly lit 1920s’ speakeasy that’s difficult to find. Once you’ve been scrutinised through a sliding grille in the entrance door, Blind Tiger’s staff are welcoming & seem ‘genuinely interested’ in seeing customers have a good time. The cocktails take you on a voyage through Prohibition & beyond. They’re dangerously good &, for the quality, not too expensive.Drinkers preferring beer or wine can choose from a globally sourced list. Given the emphasis on the atmosphere, the drinks & the music (which often includes live jazz & blues), it’s a pleasant surprise to find the food is rather good. The likes of nettle & rosemary soup, or seared salmon sashimi, precede steaks, chorizo-stuffed squid & meaty salads. For novelty value, book a table at Sunday’s tea & martini party.

We couldn't believe our luck when we left this restaurant, such a great find by my girlfriend. It's like stepping back into the 1920's, candle lit and so romantic, they had a live singer in the back ground, the food was delicious, the cocktail list was amazing, we will definitely be back.

Dined at the Blind Tiger last night, fantastic. Great concept, place looked really good, like stepping back in time. Dinner was lovely, cocktails are amazing, old recipes, but for me the thing that really stood out was the service. People who actually look like they enjoyed themselves at work, and were genuinely interested in the customer having a good time. Cant recommend this place enough
