Friendly staff, good service. Was very helpful with food allergies. There are vegetarian options.
All you can eat meat on the carvery. You just can’t go wrong. The food was fantastic as always and the price wasn’t bad either
Yummy, fresh food in a lovely setting. The service was excellent this time round compared to my first visit earlier in the year.
Really yummy carvery! Great selection and all cooked really nicely 😊
Excellent food, well cooked (within the limits of this style) - assume some of the food was part-cooked to even out cooking times. Reasonable selection of fresh food, suitable for vegetarian and pescatarian diets. Plenty of spices, herbs and "sauces" to apply before cooking. The "chefs" seemed to take good care to ensure that everything was well cooked. You watch them cook while you wait. Very nice atmosphere with subdued lighting, a pleasant view to a grassed area, and inoffensive music playing softly in the background. Staff not especially attentive: had to work each time to catch them to ask for drinks - didn't automatically ask if anyone else wanted a drink (not obviously trained to constantly look around for customers needing help). Nice was offered a jug and four glasses for water though when one of us asked for a glass of tap water. (Always find it odd that in UK it is not usual to automatically provide table water.) Tables are well spaced and not crammed in and the place is of moderate size. Was rather let down on the gluten allergy front for one of our four-person party - the person that took us to our table was able to identify one gluten free beer (not in menu) but couldn't say which of the sauces were gluten free but promised to find out and write them down for us. She never returned. I complained at the end when settling up and only gave them £10 tip on a £130 bill! (Was told she was the manager.) They should have ready access to allergens information these days. They offered to cook gluten free options in kitchen if common cooking area would be a problem. A sign reminding people which way to navigate the food section to fill the bowls would be helpful. We were, oddly, "told off" by a member of staff for standing in the wrong place which would be a problem, apparently, when it was more full later on. Unfortunately the people ahead of us had decided to fill their food bowls from the opposite end of the counter (at the meat end) from where they picked up the empty bowls, so we'd had wait them out.) Wasn't obvious where to enter the restaurant. Through the pub at the front (choice of two entrances, one past the toilets!) Decent parking to the rear, before and after the building.
The restaurant has a lovely setting and you have your table for the evening so aren't rushed to eat your food. Great value for money as you can go up as many times as you like. Super selection of ingredients; different meats, fish, vegetables etc and vegetarians are catered for, and lots of different herbs, spices and sauces, so you can experiment with your dish, each time you go up. Its the best Mongolian restaurant I've been to. And the deserts....well all i can say is Wow! Staff are lovely and work very hard. I highly recommend a visit here.
Were one of the first so waiting time was perfect. Only disappointment were the desserts, we have been many times previously and desserts were wonderfully presented, this time I was rather disappointed on presentation, I ordered strawberry & chocolate cheesecake with strawberry ice cream, there was no chocolate on the cheesecake at all and the ice cream was vanilla, it also looked like it was just chucked on the plate with no presentation at all, but the taste was nice. Also we were waiting over 15 mins for the dessert before the waitress realised that she had put it on the wrong table and went and retreived it, by which time the other dessert (sticky toffee pudding) was only luke warm. But overall the food was lovely, like I've already said the only disappointment were the desserts.
They do very well to keep food fresh and stocked. Very tasty. There is a lovely Latin party feel of an evening which makes it the perfect atmosphere to socialise with friends. They got our cocktail order wrong but put it right for us. Only negatives are that the table was really wobbly and caused the drinks to slide. One went into my friends lap. Also the drinks service is always slow. It took 20 minutes to bring the first round out this time. But those really are the only negatives. Good food, good ambiance, good experience.
Had previous excellent experiences at Jenko's, so hoped it would meet the big build up I had given my guests who hadn't been before! We were not disappointed. Two of the party are world travellers who have eaten in many different countries and they really enjoyed it. The food was excellent as was the service. A superb meal. I can highly recommend this restaurant, and look forward to another return visit. Thank you Jenko's.
my second visit here, took the family for our wedding anniversary. everyone totally enjoyed it, especially as each was able to eat according to their preference. We all decided to go for desert despite being stuffed and really enjoyed them as we tried eachothers. we all agreed it was a great fun evening, although having desert was probably a tad too much! All looking forward to going again soon.
