    Waited half an hour for our table when we had it pre booked First time visiting trongate food was not anywhere near as flavourful as west reagent street. Paying £1 extra for salt and chilli and the chips were so bland they had to be salted. Servers were nice and friendly though.

    Food was amazing but we tried to order wings to start and the waitress wouldn’t let us order them to start and said we could only have everything together. We then said can we just order the wings just now and we can order our main course in 5 mins time. She said yes then came back to our table and told us we wouldn’t have enough time to have it separate because we only have 1.5 hours on the table. This is more than enough time to have starters then a main. We then had to order everything together to pleaee her and we waited for about 30 mins on our food even coming out. We were then told we only have 15 mins left on our table when there were multiple free tables around us. We felt constantly rushed and couldn’t sit and relax.

    Was looking forward to our first visit here. Was impressed by the size of the chicken but that's as good as it got. The chicken was chewy, stringy and at some bits quite hard! Ordered the lunch menu but was charged for a regular meal and drink (the difference was the bar staff tip). £14 for a horrible bit of chicken wasn't worth it. Tried it, not impressed, won't return.

    Disappointing experience. We weren't quite ready to order when waitress came over and asked for an extra couple of minutes to decide. She didn't return for quite some time. We then waited a very long time for our food to arrive. Chicken was dry and I suspect wrong coleslaw served (hadn't expected the rainbow slaw to be spicy). We ordered another round of drinks during our meal but one drink was missing. We had to ask twice more for this and it eventually arrived after we had finished our food. A short time after our plates were removed we were told that someone else was booked on our table 15 minutes later and we'd need to leave. Not great when the service was so slow and at no time had we been asked if we wanted anything else or even the brought the bill.

    Great food, great drinks and great service. The only reason I gave the ambience a 3 is because we were outside and the noise and people on the street made it a bit less chilled than if we were inside. I would still highly recommend going here for the food alone though!

    Food was outstanding and worth the money. Service was ok, waited a while to get drink orders and ended up with no drink during food which is great given the spicy chicken. Managed to order when food was arriving otherwise staff missed our section. Was pretty loud but expected for a Saturday. Would go back for the food.
