Il Camino, Italian on Osbourne Road. Very cheap and very good.

Eeeeh, my mate used to live in that street!

What was the food like ?

I had penne arrabiata, don't remember having any better domestically. The lass had a pizza which looked nice and big. I think everything might have been £4.50. Certainly what we both had were. Happened to be in there at the same time as Martins after the Stoke game.

blue coyote is canny. tex mex type thing.

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Also, I wasn't too much of a fan of Barn Asia. The food was ok, but just not worth the cost, although the atmosphere of the place was spot on.

Anyone been to Simply Greek? Opinions?

Been quite a few times as I work just near there, it's alright but fairly standard.

I think I fancy trying Grainger Rooms next, had a spy at their menu and it looks canny.

I love Wagamamas although i think its more of a lunchtime place.

some people actually believe that the food is just like authentic Japanese food :lol: .....

Are the owners Vietnamese do you know? or are they run by Chinese?

Anyone been to Red Mezze before? Going tonight with wor lass. Heard some decent things about it.

I like La Tasca on the quayside, even though it's a chain it's in a really good location and nice inside. There's another Italian next to it as well, but I can't remember the name (never been).

Much better Tapas bars than La Tasca in town.

Probably right, the Salsa Club does some nice stuff, where else?
the salsa club on westgate road is really nice. i've never set out to go there but often when out with the wife and feeling a bit peckish we'll pop in for a few plates. the atmosphere is always brilliant chilled and laid back and the food is good.

there is no better place in the town for killing the muchies half way through the night.


went to utong last night,quite good but wouldn't be massivly disappointed if we went again and couldn't get in.

Red Mezze was absolutely cracking. I would recommend it to anyone.

Raval is quality, one of the best Indians I've ever been to. Their chutneys are to die for and the curries are so different to the oily swill elsewhere (had a sea bass one when I went). It's quite expensive but you get what you pay for.

I tried to get in last night but they were fully booked (which surprised me since it was empty when I tried on a Saturday night a few months ago).
