A group of 6 of us went to Alooshi on a Wednesday night. When we booked we were told that we needed to be out by 9pm at they close at 9 on a Wednesday. Fair enough, we understood. We all decided to try the banquet as we had never tried Leabese food before and from the waitresses description we would have a smorgasbord cross section of food to try. We were all REALLY dissapointed by the tiny portions that followed, rally overpriced for what it was. I did not enjoy it at all but others at the table said it wasn't too bad, just overpriced.
That's not what this revier is about however, we were about to be introduced to Lebanese hospitality: twice during the evening we were reminded we had to be out by nine. At 8.30, while we were still eating, we were asked if we could settle the bill, which we did. At 8.45 we were all finished eating and just had our drinks to finish when the waitress announced we needed to leave as they still needed to clean up and be out by 9pm. We gulped down our drinks and were unceremoniously shown the door which was promptly locked behind us at 8.50pm! There was another table of 3 ladies that had been thrown out as well and one of them commented "that's the first time I have been evicted from a restaurant!". Please ladies and gentlemen, let's go where our support is appreciated and avoid places like this that think they are doing us a favour by allowing us in the front door.
