Madame D's calificaciones y reseñas
Overall I was pretty disappointed with my experience at Madame D's. The food was good, but we felt left down in particular with the quality of the service.
A few of the issues we had:
-This meal was to celebrate my wife’s 30th birthday. I made a request to the restaurant, that I’d appreciate it if they could commemorate this in some way. Nothing was done, which was very disappointing. I’ve been to many restaurants where a small desert or something is brought out with a candle, but we didn’t receive anything like this;
-It took a long time for our order to be taken, with two other tables which were sat c5mins after we arrived, having their orders taken first. It was 20 minutes before even our drinks order was taken;
-Dishes were given without the right cutlery (eg no spoon for the curry dish); and
-It was difficult getting the attention of the waitresses and waiters eg when trying to order another drink. At one point I asked for more water, and the waitress only filled my wife’s glass and left my empty glass before walking away. It was 5 minutes before she was back in the room, and I had to ask for water again. I appreciate this was probably a mistake, but it is pretty basic.
Overall I was pretty disappointed. The food is here pretty good, but the service does not do it justice.
Overpriced and not great quality of ingredients. Didn’t taste freshly prepared. Fantastic sauce on not so good prawns. The sauce for the whole fish was really strong and liquid. Dry fried chicken and lamb noodles covered in spring onions. Lack of love really :(
A very interesting cuisine! We had a booking for and went straight upstairs as it was a bar downstairs. There was no staff upstairs and after 5 minutes, my friend decided to go and get us a drink in which she saw a member of staff who told us our table was downstairs! Service was not very good but the food completely makes up for it. I was very impressed by the crispy chicken which was very succulent. The king prawns were very well flavoured and were actually king prawns! Overall, i would come back but only on a special occassion as it was quite expensive.
There is not much space unfortunately, so can get very "cosy".
The fish (bass) is a really strong smelling fish and usually a sport fish, we orderd it anyway but didnt like it at all. So we can not recommend it - only when you like smelly fish ;)
the rest was very declicious but spicy!
The menu is small but perfectly formed, all of the dishes are delicious. This time I had Khatmandu curry, creamy, spicy, yummy, and crispy fried chicken- spices perfectly balanced, very moreish. The cocktails are very good, we had to stay on for another round after eating.
My only complaint is that the noise levels with music tend to make it hard to talk to your compadres... but then again, it's in Spitalfields and everywhere's loud these days. Mmmm maybe I've been here too long.
This was our first time dining here and unfortunately it will be our last. We had positive expectations on the back of their sister restaurant Gunpowder being excellent. Unfortunately it was the opposite experience for us here. The food was average and pretty bland for the most part. There was nothing interesting or any 'wow' factor about any of the dishes. Majority of dishes tasted like they had been heated up. The service was very hit and miss. Our table at the back on the ground floor wasn't great even though we had a reservation and didn't walk in off the street. The restaurant decor was pretty basic and the seats uncomfortable. I won't be returning here - instead I will return to Gunpowder next time!
Not my first visit - tried everything on the menu.
Most of the dishes are fantastic - hakka paneer, seabass, beef puff, bamboo & sweet potato curry, potato bhel.
The fried chicken is a let down - underwhelming, bland and oily. Prawn crackers are overpriced at £8.
Staff are friendly!
I was left very disappointed sadly. I thought the sauces a bit over powering and tasting the same on most of the dishes we had. I was eating with a vegetarian so I didn't order the port which I know is supposed to be amazing so I may go back. The aubergine was uncooked at the bottom and we had to ask for a knife to cut it. The puff was £3.50 for one - nice but expensive for what it is. and the Himalayan Fried Chicken was actually very poor. No flavour and the batter was oily and thin. Service was very friendly if a bit erratic. All in all, I LOVE Gunpowder so was expecting the same with Madame D's but sadly it doesn't come close.
The only particularly tasty dish was the beef puff. The recommended duck leg dish was a dud. The Himalayan chicken dish was truly awful.
When "fashionable" food goes wrong: tasteless and expensive for what it is. Why do places like this get hype? Annoying waste of time.
Excellent food and drinks. Short menu but still had great variety in the meats, and plenty of vegetarian options. Favourite dishes were the Nepalese pork, lamb noodles, potato bhel and the aubergine. We ordered 7 dishes amongst 4 people and no rice, and we were stuffed, probably could have done with ordering 6? Every dish was interesting, authentic (from what we know of Himalayan cuisine), and delicious! Cosy, good ambience and service. We will definitely be back.
I went with my business associate after a meeting to have a bite to eat. It was first visit. Overall, it was a pleasant experience but we both did not rate the sitting plan because it was too crowded and no privacy. But, we were lucky as we were sat in the only corner table with no adjoining table!
To be 100% honest I was slightly disappointed with Madame Ds. After reading the reviews I was really excited to try spicy Himalayan food especially the momos which I haven't had since India. It actually turns out that they have turned down the spice since opening and the chef has stopped cooking the momos as they aren't enough of a challenge.
The service was bordering on adequate to poor. It took a long time to get anyone's attention and when we did they kept on walking off before they had taken the full order.
I did enjoy the food but I had very high expectations which were not met.
Some dishes were way too spicy, beef puff for £3.50 although very delicious only one serving, quite expensive for what it is. There is prawn crackers with pickles on the menu for £8.50 - not really sure whether the prawn crackers were dipped in gold, didn't order to find out. Overall probably won't be rushing to go back.
Raised on South Indian cuisine, I felt the spices were well done and left your mouth with a flurry of flavours. The pork was outstanding and the dips for prawn crackers were a surprise.
Good attentive service. Food was served at good pace.
Ambience gets 4 star because I am th wrong side of 50. My companions in their 20s loved it. I would have like to have been seated upstairs and that might have given 5 stars.
£35 per head with service charge including cocktails and wine is very reasonable. Will be going back soon.
My friend and I had a high expectation for this restaurant. But I have to say that the dinner was something we wish we had at a different place. Since my friend cannot eat coriander so we asked them if any of the dishes we were going to order had anything of it. The staff told me that they don't use only a little amount so we would not be able to notice it. And when I got the dishes there was lots of lots of coriander (in all of the dishes!) enough to see and taste it so she basically couldn't eat. We wish he would have asked us if they could cook without it. Even after we told them that we can't eat because of the coriander, he wasn't apologetic at all. We are sure that we made clear that we would not be able to eat if there's coriander......we left the place feeling guilty for making tons of food waste because of the insufficient information given from the staff. I felt bad for her too.
Also they don't have so many dishes to choose from, and it looks like they change menu often, so there's a high chance that you wouldn't be able to find something you really would like to have. I personally would not go back to this place even though I can eat coriander.
