Review of 'Tiger Tiger'

For many years I have wanted to try Tiger Tiger (just around the corner from Piccadilly Circus) as it always looked quite appealing so I decided to finally give it a go. I visited for the “pre-theatre” menu which is quite a good bargain (two courses for £10). On offer are some very good (yet simple) appetisers which are quite varied (perhaps too much so) – Satay Chicken, Salads and Vine-Fresh Tomato Soup. The selection of mains includes chicken stuffed with cheese and Italian meets served with pesto potatoes along with one of their, seemingly, signature dishes: Angus Beef hamburgers (which were passable, but a bit tricky to eat with a knife and fork). The full menu offers steaks and other such, rather dull, fare – Not encouraging for my paying a repeat visit. Unfortunately Tiger Tiger is not only known for it's restaurant but also it's bar whose noise and smoke permeates the restaurant making any home at a peaceful meal a remote possibility particularly as the time gets later. Drinks are quite expensive and very small. Service is surprisingly not very good with waiters running all over the place yet never seeming to visit your table – What they are doing or where they are going is a bit of a mystery. All in all, a huge disappointment I am sorry to say.
