We shared a basket of bread/oil/olives to start, then both had Lobster & Tiger Prawn Risotto, then I had Chocolate Cake, and she had Lemon Sorbet, came to £70 inc tip and a bottle of wine.

Very, very good.

here's my favourite Glasgow restaurants should any of you give a sh*t

Brunswick Hotel - Brutti Ma Buoni, Brunswick Street, Glasgow

my favourite place for eating by a mile, great tapas, great homemade pizza, crackin' burgers, tasty seafood and pints of Peroni…if you are in Glasgow make sure you pay this place a visit…also good club nights in the basement at weekends and burds are usually of good standard…(few gays about if that's your thing)

Ichiban - Queen Street, Glasgow

no nonsense Japanese food, their noodle dishes are their specialities as well as doing Japanese curry & sushi. far superior to Wagamamma (pre weighed pish). Always has a good atmosphere and does a good lunchtime deal.

Coia's - Duke Street, Dennistoun, Glasgow

its about 5 mins from Glasgow's Merchant City, Coia's started off as a small cafe in the East End and is now a huge cafe/deli/restaurant/chippie. does a fantastic range of Italian foods as well as great hangover food such as steak pie, fish n chips etc etc - if you can be arsed going East this place is quality, their gnocchi salsicca is tops

Some friends were there the other day, and said the menu looked really shit.

If I keep my expectations low, I know I won't be let down.

Ate at Popodom in the trafford centre yesterday.

It's one of those 'restaurants' that is basically a few tables and chairs by the Orient entrance, I knew it was going to be shit as soon as I sat down.

The food was absolutely awful, my Chicken Jalfrezi had chunks of carrot and garden peas in it. Tasted and looked like a frozen curry someone had added a few bits to, the naan bread was like the ones you'd get from a supermarket.

2 starters, 2 currys, 1 rice, 2 naan, 1 coke, 1 beer came to £45. Wish I'd have gone to Rusholme, it would've been cheaper too.

I can't remember ever going out for a curry and thinking it was shit, avoid this place can guarantee it'll be shut in 6 months!

You deserve all you get, for choosing to eat at a place called "POPODOM".

I know, I know Smiling.

I wanted a curry though, I've tried the other place in there so thought we'd give it a chance. Plus it was recommended by a mate, useless twat!

I'm just making sure no fuker makes the same mistake.

Very, very good.

I went to the one in The Mailbox around 3 weeks ago with a mate, first time ive been and i thought it was shit!
As a starter i had Potato gnocchi which was too soft due to being overcooked.
For a main dish i had Pollo milanese which was a chicken breast in breadcrumbs with spaghetti.
This was fucking shocking! The chicken breast was a reject product from the bernard manning farms and the spaghetti im sure was out of a heinz tin warmed up in the microwave. Bloody awful.

The only saving grace of the meal was that i wasnt paying

From my visit, i will not be going again in a hurry

I'd rather keep this thread full of Recommended Eateries and leave the awful eateries out of it as theres hundreds of bad gaffs but only select few good places.

Malmaison Reading - Great very well thought out menu full of local produce, great drink selection, good prices and great service

The Crooked Billet, Stoke Row, Henley. Amazing Game selection of dish's at the right time of year. Stunning place to be in the summer, they sometimes have fresh oysters and champagne on the front lawn.

And for drinks Raouls Bar, Oxford. Was named in the top 50 cocktail bars in the world, a year or so back. Jam Jar Hand Shandys are superb.

Went to the other one on North Street, was barely worth the 2 for 1 voucher let alone a £70 bill. Went to Ask the other day as they have that 2 pizzas and wine for £20 going on and that was shit as well, overcooked and all the meat was seriously dry and oversalted.

I've said it before but La Capannina still by far the best pizzeria in Brighton. Don't know what it's like for pasta, don't really care either.

Piccolino - Brindleyplace Birmingham
http://www.piccolinorestaurants.co.uk/birmingham.php
Really nice value for money Italian restaurant.

Nicely little buzz about the place. dark decor, dim lighting with a decent drinks menu.
Efficient service though they should have kept a bit more space between tables unless you are in the boothes.
Can recommend this for a nice evening meal out with the bitch
Cost is usually around £80-£100 including a decent bottle of wine

Under new management isn't it? Haven't been there in a long old time but it was good, has a wood fired oven like La Capannina… weird that there's two within 50 yards of eachother. Think they do delivery too, got a leaflet in the door just the other day.
