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

RYN21 was held at the extremely well located (for me) Finchley Road O2 Centre. Not my first time to this branch (just checked, and I've done the whole nearest station etc. before)... Initially thought I might not make it to the meal as I picked up a headache at work due to the office turning into a greenhouse with all its windows and a broken air-con system (talk about first world problems).

Thankfully, I did turn up (even if I was bit grumpy at first - so apologies for that!) and magically won a prize in the raffle for the second meal running. Plenty of sauces laid out and starters given out for free, which is always a plus. Staff were fantastic throughout, and decor creeps up to a 5 thanks to all the sauces laid out and the free food too. Service probably took longer than 10mins, but I'll give it a 4 anyway given it's about 20-odd people descending on the tills at once. Food itself: my butterfly burger did seem somewhat overcooked and a bit dry, so I smothered it in more sauce, that was probably the one negative of the meal

Only downside is that we again didn't really bother with the quiz - as we'd have won it easily! Aced all the 2pt questions, including a good footy question - but never bothered to find any of the restaurants or maps!

Roll on Wood Green next time - these North London dinners are nice and convenient.
