Zoe Williams of The Sunday Telegraph reviews Malaysian restaurant Suka in London’s Berners Street and labels it “a waste of time”. She pronounces the crab fritters “soggy”, the noodles and vermicelli a “tangly mess”, the food as a whole “devilishly expensive” and the service slow. It’s also impossible to find enough vegetarian dishes to make up a meal of any size. Allan Brown of The Sunday Times visits SeaWoo in Glasgow, the largest restaurant in Scotland. The menu is Far Eastern with dishes from China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Thailand, and seems to be aimed mainly at expatriates. Brown finds many of the dishes, such as the duck feet wrap, “bizarre” or “not for the squeamish” and leaves feeling he “really wasn’t this restaurant’s target audience”. Jay Rayner of The Observer reviews Great Queen Street in London WC2, “a solid restaurant with a real identity of its own”. His warm salad of snails and his pudding are “beyond reproach” but the main courses of pot-roast chicken and roast leg of lamb are “lacklustre”. Terry Durack of The Independent on Sunday visits Gordon Ramsay’s gastropub The Narrow. He pronounces the food “not quite up to snuff” and awards it 12 out of 20. The menu is “Jane Grigson’s Guide To British Cookery brought to life” but six weeks after opening, the kitchen appears to be “struggling”. The salt beef is “woefully overcooked”, the accompanying broth too salty and the carrots “practically raw”. However, the beer-and-vodka-battered monkfish has “freshness and presence”.
