The Manager persisted on trying to make us feel guilty upon using our 40 pound voucher, stating that they need to prepare the set menu.
The set menu consisted of an entree - seaweed, 2 spring rolls and 2 pork ribs...
A soup you get a choice of chicken and corn or sweet and sour
Main - sliced beef
- mixed vegetables
- sweet and sour chicken and fried rice
Then dessert which was a mixed fruit platter..
We would have understood if they food was going to be extravagant, but none of the above is, the food was average (we much prefer the Chinese restaurant right opposite Tuli)
I definitely would not recommend this place to my friends or any of my neighbours in SE1!!!
Service very friendly.
The first thing that gets you as you enter is the scale of the place. It's set partialy in the railway arch behind the building and they've covered the roof in an arched lit canopy - quite pretty. The rest of the dÃ©cor is modernist and simple and the dining area streches over a ground and a mezzanine level. The buffet and serving area is huge. Three curved tables forming a circle provide the serving area for the buffet.
The food I tried was excellent, the crispy fried chicken with Thai chili sauce was particularly zingy and the pork ribs with honey and chili were delicious. They also (unusual in my experience) had king prawns, mussels and crispy duck pancakes available at lunchtime. All of the flavours were distinct and fresh and there was not an overabundance of food so as it was used up it was replaced. At the weekends and evenings they also have Sushi, Tepanyaki, where they cook the food you have selected in front of you and also BBQ Roast also within the price.
