Beckton - James Colom Review
Firstly, the decoration at this restaurant is very average. I could only see one piece of art on the walls which is very unusual, and no interesting furnishings to speak of. It was clean though, but it would probably benefit from a revamp over all.
Arrived around 1.30 and were seated immediately since it wasn't very busy. Strangely by the time we left about 2.30 it had packed out and the queue was going right back to the door - perhaps a Beckton tradition to eat lunch late? Who knows! Ordering was simple enough and there was no queue at the till. I got my usual of a double wrap Extra Hot with Mango & Lime, and the Nandoca, though confused, assured me he would tell the griller to combine the sauces.
When the food arrived (quite a long time after the rest of the party) it was simply a doubly Extra Hot wrap. I explained what I had ordered and the griller said it wasn't possible to give each of the breast pieces a different sauce. A bit of manager involvement quickly solved the issue (everyone was extremely friendly throughout) and I was soon eating. The food was excellent, and the newly made wrap with both spicy and fruity, while the manager must have given me a fresh set of chips, since they were almost too hot to eat. Rice wasn't too dry and I was very satisfied after it was over!
Would I return? Yes, since the food was great. However, I'm very rarely in this area so more local restaurants will have to suffice.
