Zizzi Shad Thames

An excursion to the Design Museum led me to lunch at Zizzi's. Personally I wanted to try ASK (yes I have never been) but the uninviting presence of an empty shop meant Zizzi's seemed more inviting. The only other time I had been to Zizzi's was a couple of years ago back in Bromley where I had lasagne. I debated with myself whether I should get the Linguine Gamberi or Pollo Al Rosmarino, in the end I chose the Pollo Al Rosmarino because I was quite worried that the Linguine would be really hot. I also ordered an apple juice which should have come with a place mat as the bottom was extremely slippery.

Personally I wasn't a huge fan of the Pollo Al Rosmarino, it tasted ok but a bit too strongly of rosemary or something similar. The chicken didn't taste right either and the whole thing was only warm when served. The service was average as well. One of my friends didn't really know what the waiter was talking about when he asked what base she wanted and the waiter seemed a bit annoyed about that.

Overall it was an average experience I'd say, pricing was ok at just under £30 for 3 people but next time I'll look into ASK instead.


  1. I've not been to any of the Zizzi locations yet either, not sure I will on this write up. I mean, it could have been an off day but that's all it takes to put you off an entire chain off restaurant.

  2. I wouldn't say it was a really bad experience and I would go back to another branch of Zizzi's again but it would have to be when there's no other option or my friends are dying to go.
