EXCELLENT, ALL STAFF VERY OBLIGING.
Very good value and excellent venue for a large gathering.
Service was a bit slow and there was only 4 tables including us there. Very good value for money though and would definitely return
Excellent food and service. Very friendly and attentive staff. Restaurant ambience somewhat functional. Good value for food of this standard.
We all had a really lovely Christmas lunch. Could not fault anything>
we had a great Christmas lunch, great choices on the menu, as a vegetarian I feel well catered for. The service was great, they couldn't do enough for us and everything was considered. The food was fabulous and cooked to a high standard. we come every year and will continue to do so.
What an excellent we all had. A credit to the college everyone worked as a team I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, long may it continue
An enjoyable experience. Have already booked for next year and bringing extra guests.
Absolutely wonderful experience, as always - great food and service - we come for Xmas lunch every year now and start looking forward to it in the summer! Thank you to the staff and students for all your hard work and talents.
We had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble and students were so polite.
Another great Christmas Lunch at Taste. The food was really tasty and served quickly and on time. Our only small niggle was that the soup wasn't very warm. We'll certainly be booking again next year
We thought this years students were very efficient, well trained, knowing exactly how to serve and clear the tables, very polite and knowledgeable on caring for their customers. 12 out of 10 🥳
Excellent service, food is fantastic. Cant fault it. I always buy something when i come, this time it was the mince pies and they were delicious. Fab Fab Fab
We had a lovely Christmas lunch and will be back again next year
Excellent food, swift service and very festive atmosphere.
Enjoyed the occasion very much; congratulations to the chefs and waitjng staff
It is now several years since friends and family have joined us for superb meals at Leicester College. The meals are always tasty and served by pleasant, friendly and efficient staff. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Excellent meal yet again. This is a really good place to come for a meal at any time of the year. It is also good to support the students in their chosen profession.
Would be nice to hear the Christmas Music
Well done Taste Restaurant, especially to your attentive students. I have been to two evening Christmas meals and they were both excellent and presented very good value for money. It would be nice to see the kitchen staff who are doing the cooking, towards the end of the evening. Perhaps they could come out for a round of applause like on Master Chef ? It would give them some recognition for their hard work.
Excellent venue: for good food, value for money, great atmosphere, and genuine hardworking staff who take care of every detail. I've used the Taste Restaurant for private moments with my wife and friends and I've organised large dinners for 120 people, whatever and whenever, the Taste doesn't disappoint.
Lovely as usual
Lovely meal, as usual. All party enjoyed the food.
