James's Review ‹ Back to Al Pasha Coffee Lounge & Bar
It was supposed to be a birthday dinner with friends, the venue Al Pasha was selected out of past experiences at the restaurant. The restaurant seems to have undergone some metamorphosis, to begin with the steamed hand towels were scalding hot. We then proceeded to order food, which comprised of orders of fish with accompaniments and lamb with accompaniments. Accompaniments at Al Pasha means either Rice / Chips, which meant if the restaurant ever ran out of Chips, this would be evident within at least 10 minutes of the order getting to the kitchen on a slow night. It took the waiter a whole hour to come back and inform us that rice would be the only accompaniment. We reluctantly agreed because it was almost getting to 10 p.m. and we needed to get through the program of the evening quite quickly, we however hadn't anticipated that 1. we would be served with burnt rice and 2. there would be no sauce added to the rice, save for a sample of sauce that was provided on a small bowl which the waiter declared was a serving for five. All said and done, we stood up, paid for our drinks, grabbed our cake and we were off to Pampas.
