The Chicken wing starter was delicious but the mains (peri peri chicken & Bass) were not special or particularly flavorful and were a bit over priced . Our server Cassius was efficient & helpful. I liked that the menu indicated which meals were gluten free.

Upon arrival the staff at the door was a bit rude. Our waiter Cassius however was awesome, he was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. He deserves a raise😬 The food was awesome!

We were throughly looking forward to our experience however we were left bitterly disappointed! We experienced terrible service and tasteless cocktails (which took over 30 minutes to come). We decided to leave and not order anything else before becoming further dissatisfied.

Great restaurant and great food, it was a real pity that poor service diluted the experience. It took over 35mins for our starters to come and thereafter the meals just came really slowly.

I had a booking on Friday night the 12th of May 2018 for 19h00. The service was terrible and waited for up to half an hour to receive drinks for certain people around my table. I ordered a garlic sauce to go with my steak and received a bowl of melted butter with chopped up garlic. The food was delicious but spoilt by the lack of service and attention to detail. Regards, Charmaine

Extremely disappointing. Firstly not all the cheeses that were said to be were on the platter actually made it out to our table. Secondly i had phoned to move my reservation to 1 and when I had arrived they had given my table away and had no recollection of me phoning to move my reservation. To me it’s over priced and over hyped.

Unfortunately our first experience of Something’s Cooking was hugely disappointing. We made dinner reservations but never actually got dinner. Understandably the restaurant was quite full due to the Dynamo show, but the kitchen and staff were not at all prepared to deal with a full Friday evening. Our reservation was for 1.5 hrs before the start of the show, generally ample time, and we ordered drinks and food as we sat down. An hour later the food had still not arrived and the waitresses were regularly telling us that the food would only be 5 minutes. We eventually paid for our drinks and left without eating 10 minutes before the start of the show and just managed to make it. As new parents our first night out in months was spoilt by having to go straight to the show without having eaten anything. Very disappointing

Well trained staff - we received an exceptional service. The food is divine - all my guests enjoyed their meals. Your menu is not user friendly - however your waiters explained it well. I will definitely come back again.

We ordered burgers and they were delicious but the fries were cold..... not too appetizing. And, the chairs outside are very uncomfortable, have you considered adding pillows? They are deep and slippery and literally all six people at our table commented on this.
