QUAY FINE DINING RESTAURANT REVIEWReg White
We decided to visit Quay fine dining this month we had always been a little dubious with it being situated on the Deeside Shopping centre, a few doors from Morrison’s but in fact this was an advantage as you can’t purchase alcohol so popping into Morrison’s for a nice bottle of wine at a fraction of the cost you would pay in restaurant was a great start, also with high street restaurants you usually have issues with parking but not this one there was an abundance of spaces.
I am sure most people that have passed have had a sneaky peek inside, when entering it doesn’t disappoint its extremely decadent, the tables are laid impeccably from the sparkling cutlery and wine glasses to the crisp white napkins. The décor is opulent and rich with walnut and gold furniture,plum sumptuous chairs and décor and beautiful sparkling chandeliers . I was hoping the food was going to live up to the luxury backdrop.
We opted for the Set meal which was priced at £16.95 per person this included appetiser of poppadum’s and chutneys, a choice of starters, a choice of mains including a few Special dishes , a side to accompany your curry and Ice cream for dessert.
The service was excellent and the waiter let us slightly alter the children’s meal to suit our son. The Children’s meal was reasonably priced at £4.95 which for Chicken Tikka and chips is good value. The poppadum’s and pickle tray was served immediately after
ordering and included a hot chilli dip, mango chutney ,raita and mixed onion which left us eagerly awaiting our starters. The starters were served promptly and were presented superbly. We had all picked kebabs, a Chicken Tikka, a Seekh Kebab and last but definitely not least a Lamb Kebab .All the kebabs were presented well with a generous side salad and the most delicious fried onions over the kebabs, after tasting them all the Lamb kebab was by far the best, the Lamb was extra tender with the most gorgeous seasoning smothering it, I was so glad I had chosen lamb for my main meal.
For the Main meals we had chosen a Chicken Korma with fries, Lamb Jalfrezi with pilau rice and Lamb madras with Naan bread. The mains arrived in quirky serving dishes and were generous portions , so far so good, our daughter had chicken korma, which was wonderfully creamy with the exact right contrast between sweet and nutty ,the chicken was also tasty and of good quality, no complaints there! Reg and I had chosen to share the Lamb Jalfrezi and Lamb Madras, I knew I would not be disappointed as I love my curry hot , the deep colour and fresh chillis on view filled me with hope and I certainly was not let down, both curries were flavoursome and hot obviously the Madras was spicier but both were really tasty and again the lamb melted in your mouth ,all the accompaniments were cooked to perfection too so big thumbs up so far.
After being served with a hot lemon cloth each we were served Dessert which was mixed ice cream, chocolate sauce and wafers the perfect choice to cool us down after such a lovely authentic spicy meal, we all agreed we will definitely be returning soon as the whole experience was a culinary delight, five stars to Quay Fine Dining!
