Chloe Likes To Eat

I swear, some weeks, T and I do stay in, every night. It's just that lately, I've been stalking Groupon and trying to make sure we get out regularly, as he's off for most of the summer again, and has exams and trips in May. Most recently, a trip to the newly opened restaurant in the Regent's Park Marriott, Zaike NW3. I was aware that this restaurant was due to open, as my parents have used this particular Marriott a number of times due to it's highly convenient (for them) location at Swiss Cottage. It so happens that it's nearby to T's workplace too, so I headed to meet him there.....

So first and foremost, the food. It was yummy. The food we ordered was well prepared, accurately described  on the menu. The portions were really good too, often with Indian food, I find the portions massively overfacing and I leave feeling over full.

One thing we did feel, was that the service was a little on the sharp side- whilst the staff were friendly enough, we felt rushed, despite plenty of empty tables. Luckily, the management team took our feedback as it was meant- as a constructive observation. The Marriott is typically a business hotel, and they are used to dealing with customers who want to get in and out as quickly as possible, as leisure customers, we wanted to take our time.

Overall, it was a very pleasant evening, although the menu is quite a short one, there's something for most tastes and being close to the Odeon at Swiss Cottage, it makes a pretty convenient drop in.
