A funky blend of classic American diner and modern industrial bar, TGI Fridays Reading Oracle serves up a massive selection of crowd-pleasing comfort foods. From burgers and spicy wings through to sinful milkshakes, there is something on offer for everyone. Kids get their own dedicated menus, and outside there is a small seating area to relax and watch the shopping crowds go by. A fun escape from the bustle of the Oracle Shopping Centre, TGI Fridays Reading Oracle is only 8 minutes' walk from Reading Rail Station.
Big, bold American flavours freshly made in house served up every day. Choose from the sweet, smoky taste of their famous Jack Daniel’s glaze smothered onto dishes throughout the menu. Enjoy jam- packed juicy burgers along with some fresh hot sandwiches and a wide variety of flavourful appetizers. Signature steak grills and the fantastic range of fall off the bone pork ribs are a must have when visiting TGI Fridays.
Famed for its fantastic drinks selection, guests at TGI Friday's can challenge bar tenders to rustle up a mix from its 500-strong cocktail list, like the classic strawberry daiquiri, or the signature raspberry-spiked Haymarket. Ultimate thick shakes, Cooling slushes, chilled beers and wines are also on offer.
Leave room for freshly prepared desserts like the brownie obsession, chocolate fudge fixation and the cookie dough sundae.

It was my friends birthday and we wanted to go to TGI Fridays because we hadn't been for a while and every time we had been in the past we really enjoyed the food as it always tasted so FRESH and FULL of flavour. Unfortunately that was not our experience at all!! It would seem that the quality of food has definitely gone down and alot of shortcuts are being taken to make the food. My friend ordered the Jack Daniel's wings with Mash and the Mash was definitely not freshly made! This was instant mash for sure to which the waitress said that the chefs categorically denied it was and assured her that it was fresh mash potato. I had ordered the new lobster mac and cheese which had no flavour or cheese sauce, it was cold when I got it even though it came on a oven baked dish. To be honest with you, I could go on with regards to the quality of the food but be all and end all was it was very disappointing to see how one of our favourite restaurant chains has gone down in their quality of the food. I really do hope that this is something that will get looked into. On a positive note, the waitress was very patient with us and offered to take off the items that we were not happy with from our bill and she was very understanding. So I cannot fault her service.

My friend who is with me was allergic to dairy and gluten. The team did a fantastic job. Only criticism is the desserts were not catered for everyone and she couldn’t have dessert as fruit is a bit boring. Maybe something for you guys to look into .

A bit of a disaster but the manager did try to salvage it. One order was wrong, not enough prawns to correct it, waited ages for the correct dish to arrive (but the salad was super spicy and not enjoyable).Three 1/2 rack of ribs were very small (one super small). Waiter obviously irritated after he made the mistake so no more smiles. Bill completely wrong - had to send it back 3 times. Manager did give wrong order for free and an additional small half rack after complaint re size. Unfortunately it was my daughter's 15th birthday lunch (her choice of restaurant) and she was mortified that it all went wrong and we had to 'complain' so much so it pretty much ruined things for her. Real pity

The waitress that served our table was excellent, understanding our needs, and didn't require prompting to offer us help. A truly commendable dining experience

We had Jake as our server on Saturday night. He was bloody brilliant. Always smiling. The only negative thing was we didn't receive the sauce we asked for. The food was brilliant though. We had 2 birthdays at our table and Jake brought out both cakes for us and the tgi team sang happy birthday and they even got balloon hats! Great night at tgis thanks to Saturday nights team!

One Nachos starter had a piece of dried pasta in. There was cucumber in a salad which wasn't listed on the menu. Waiter forgot to come back to take drinks order. We had finished our meal and drinks had still not arrived. There was no-one at the bar so wasn't busy!!!! Their management apologised and deducted both dishes and gave a discount but still not good review for TGI. It was also freezing cold in the restaurant.

Our 3 kids meals arrived without any of the veg sticks & the pasta & meatballs meal consisted of inedible overcooked, rock hard meatballs (which were replaced & the dish was kindly taken off the bill by our waiter). The ladies toilets were absolutely disgusting. I have 2 girls & a young boy (who I take into the ladies toilets too). All three cubicles looked like they hadn't been cleaned for days. My kids love TGI Fridays but we won't ever be coming back to this one at the Oracle.....very disappointed!!

Got seen straight to our table when we arrived. My boyfriend was looking forward to the 30oz steak until he got told the last one had just been sold and in future to phone and reserve one - this was nowhere on the menu or website to say this. Another main meal came out completely wrong and then had to wait for the correct one to be made. The waitress was speaking to us through some bars rather than coming round to the table. The food was good but a lot of money for what it was.

We had à table booked for 4 people, but another friend decided to join us making 5, the staff quickly and politely rearranged there seating plan to enable us to sit comfortably with our extra person. We were very limited for time due to going to the theatre and our waitress Sophia made sure we had everything we needed with plenty of time to spare
