    Viscounts in Dungannon (Co. Tyrone) in Northern Ireland is brilliant. Its was an 18th century church that has been restored. It has a medievil (sp!) theme, with swords, etc. Food is brilliant, i go there at least once a month.

    if u like indian food u MUST go to Balbir's...which used to be in glasgow but i think they moved it to a bigger premises near ayr. it has no menu...the owner just asks you what meat/veggies you like hot/mild etc and they make stuff up to suit you. its amazing. i only wished i lived in scotland lol

    The Aagrah chain of indian restaurants round here are really good. There's about 8 of them in Yorkshire, and they serve gorgeous Indian food and its pretty cheap (I've had good meals there for £10 including drinks).

    Heh I remember when I went to England in 2002 and one of my cousins took me there, and I thought it was like Dominos (coz of the name - well it didn't sound posh :eek: ) and I wore some trackpants

    I looked good anyway, but still :mad: They could've told me it wasn't the local Pizza Hut

    I went to a lovely Indian restaurant just over a week ago. Huge portions, we ate outside in the sun, and very good prices. It tasted amazing too.



    Unfortunately for me, it's in Berlin. Damn.


    (Just off Bergmannstrasse if anyone's gonna be visiting, heh)

    Ooh, I do quite like Frankie and Benny's, but it's overpriced.


    I do like Zizzi's too, if only for the Honeycomb cheesecake.

    Is Pizza Express in York in the building right next to the (Lendall) bridge? Or is it in the building a bit round the corner from there, nearer the Minster with the huge columns out the front of the building?

    The best place I've been to eat for a while was Kennedy's in York (I think that'sthe name).

    We were ging to go to -O scar's Wine Bar and Bistro, but that was way way too crouded, so we walked a bit further down the street and found this place called Keneedy's.

    Inside it was really nice and cool, just what you need when the day is really hot and sunny and you are swealtering.

    There was great air conditioning and subtle lighting making it feel perfect.

    We ate up stairs. They have a roof terrace, though we sat on a table just inside the doors.

    The menu was very good, a very wide selction of different types of food and meals from all different places. The portions were good sized, the service exceleltn and the quality very high.

    They had a lovely Belgian waffel with maple syrup, cream and ice cream. Superb

    I almost went to the Pizza Express in York the other day, when I was up there with a friend. They all rock - the one in Oxford is one of the few places that can do a non-cheese pizza and make it taste gorgeous.

    Luigi's and The Vineyard in Northampton are *awesome*. Fantastically good food, the former very cheap, the latter a great place for a special occasion.

    The Lemon Tree in Oxford is another good place. Relatively expensive but well worth it, and the entrance is magical

    I went to a Yo Sushi bar the other day, having wanted to try Sashimi but never had a chance, and was impressed. Very expensive for what it was, I must try a 'proper' sushi restaurant sometime, but enjoyable.

    Best restaurant I've ever eaten in - La Casalinga, Florence. It's incredibly cheap (like £2 for a starter, £5 for most main dishes, in an expensive city) but it's fantastic. Homecooked Tuscan style, but with some lovely twists. The wild boar papadelle - thick tagliatelli - was amazing and the Bistecca au Fiorentina was about as good as it can be.

    *loves Italy*

    My favourite restaurant is just down the road from where i live. Its called Truffles and is really nice but really expensive. I doubt many people go there mainly becuase of the price and mainly because people don't know it exists, in a small town in Somerset. Also the Stage Deli and Restaurant, Times Square, New York.

    We've got one of those in MK- It's alright, not too bad but I much prefer non-chain restuarants! Sadly, we have hardly any of those in MK
