Chicken pitta extra hot
Cheese
Pineapple
PERi Chips
Olives
1/4 Chicken extra hot leg
£16

PLACE: Table 36. This is a horribly cramped 'dos. The entrance is littered with takeawayers waiting for their food and the 'straunt itself is like a corridor. I was table 36 which means there must have been at least 36 tables in a room the size of my bathroom. It was so cramped that I even had a disastrous Diet Coke spillage where a whole glass, with ice, went over my dining companion's lap! The lighting in here is dire. It was hard to get a picture of me doing the Nando pose where I wasn't in pure shadow. Hellish- 2/10

SERVICE: Host- Krhystyna had a very unique spelling of the female version of my name. It was only when I studded my receipt that I realised it was phonetically similar to my name. She was very nice and after I had put in my classic large order I asked her "do many people order that much?" and she replied "yes! sometimes 2 whole chickens with large chips for one person." That made me feel less gluttonous. She also asked if I wanted garlic in my olives- very considerate- 7/10

FOOD: I had just come from seeing my second favourite band- No Ceremony/// (my first favourite being One Direction). After a few beers I was looking forward to some hot chicken so much but when the food arrived I had one word on my lips- "not up to usual standards". The pitta was cold, the pineapple was ungrilled, the internal pitta layering was skewed, the chips were overcooked and dried out yet cold and the chicken leg was so burnt that it tasted like the inside of my ear- 2/10

COMPANION: Jen didn't mind me spilling Diet Coke all over her- 9/10
