A review of The Sphinx by Sam1501 written on Wednesday 24th of November 2010
Where do I start...
In a nut-shell, the Sphinx is disguisting, employ rude staff, and the food is extremely over-priced!!!
Took a trip tonight especially to go to the Sphinx in Stranmillis, Belfast after hearing about their award-winning Kebabs.
When the girl asked for my order, I asked for 2 doner kebabs on chips, before I had a chance to say what sauce/salad I wanted, she guldered £8.80. No manners, politeness or anything! I duely paid the money and she moved onto the fella behind me in the queue. I presumed, well maybe they ask what I wanted on my order when they are making it up.
The fella behind ordered a kebab on chips with chilli sauce. When he finished his order I said 'excuse me, can I order sauce/salad on my kebabs', to that she gave me a dirty look and rolled her eyes. When she took the order correctly she turned around to the guy at the back preparing the food and told him what I wanted on the order. When she thought I was out of ear-shot, she moaned that I never mentioned at the time of order, and called me stupid amongst a few swear words. He asked her which customer it was and she then described me perfectly! *How she thought I couldn't hear this, i do not know!!!*
I was fuming! But, I left it... didn't want to cause a scene as there were a few others in the shop. I thought, the kebabs better be worth it because the customer service I received was absolutely shocking! Thank you Server 002, I hope you read this and sort your attitude out!
When I got home, I was shocked to find a small polystyrene tray with a few chips, a small portion of 'Doner kebab' shavings on top and the sauce / salad. I could not believe the size! ... for which I paid £4.40 EACH for the privledge!
The meat was fatty, left a horrible after-taste and the lettuce was off and turning brown. The 'Sphinx' sauce was watery, bland and had very little flavour to it.
I was so shocked and disappointed by the whole Sphinx experience, that I have felt the need to write this review and post some pictures.
We will never eat out of the Sphinx again and will advise anyone else not to. Don't waste your money here! How this take-away won awards, I will never know!!!
The 2 kebabs from the order and the receipt! £4.40 each!
