Comments - Stand out in our monthly competition! What did you eat? Unique aspects? Parking/transport tips?: 

This is right in the heart of Dundee, which means parking is really expensive, around the store you can get parking for 80p for half hour with maximum stay of 1hr which isn't probably long enough for a meal. The historic "olde world" shop front is quite dark and understated and doesn't let on the post modern industrialist decor of inside (though my mother didn't appreciate it and likened it to the post WW2 bomb sites she used to play in.)

The front section has the high original ceilings which I liked and am pleased they have kept. Bare brick walls host some art work and the serving counter and kitchen are housed in a rusty shipping container. Through the back there is a large triple height light and airy room which hosts a impressive graffiti art work of chicken and child on back wall, which is obscured slightly by an even more impressive large coloured plastic light shade with vertical hanging florescent lighting within. On one side is a row of booth tables with the final space for a disabled toilet below a balcony corridor and more seating upstairs. The toilets were also upstairs and were also very industrial.

We were lucky with when we got in at 12:00 as just after the whole place filled up with lunch time dinners.

Our platter was good with good sized chicken and plenty of chips all served hot.

Staff were friendly but not very attentive with checking on food and no one said good bye, a small thing I know.
