Truffle Chicken

Some crazy notion got me craving for truffle chicken; and googling got me to The White Rabbit. At my first visit, I was told that it was sold out and the waiter suggested that I come earlier another day. It was fine with me so I ordered pumpkin risotto instead. The risotto was bland and the portion small. However, it appeals to me since I like bland. The second time round, I made sure that I reached the restaurant 5 minutes after it opens but was told that it was not available. That really annoyed me because twice denied is a very hurtful rejection experience. I excused myself and went somewhere else. Nevertheless I still called to make a dinner reservation with my specific food request for that very same day. The request was acceded. Well, no lady likes feeling rejected; so I went for dinner with silent hurting. To my pleasant surprise, the staff were very nice to me and my companion. They were very polite and attentive to us the entire evening; they even gave us complimentary mushrooms to make up. All in all, dining in The White Rabbit is still a very pleasant experience (except for a probably innocent "hope you enjoyed your chicken" remark at our departure which sounds like it carried a bite). The bread served before the meal was warm and flavourful. The butter melts upon spreading, adding to the bread a rich and juicy flavour. The long-awaited truffle chicken and mushrooms however, turned out to be a little too salty. We enjoyed the beef carpaccio though.

What a waste of a building

This is the most incredible setting but that's where the good bit ends. Poorly conceived and cooked food, dreadful service, exorbitant prices... Such a shame because with the right owner and chef this could be the most incredible restaurant or even a mediocre one, but this one is just poor. If it

Every Roti Prata Shop has a better service staff. My wife and me didn't feel welcome

My wife and me decided to visit this Restaurant because we had an E-voucher. One person was supposed to get a free main course. So we went to this place and ordered starters, and a main course for both of us. The salad I had was a huge amount of salad with a few Mango slices and a few drips of

Disappointing, dilettantish and unprofessional handling of reservation for our wedding dinner

We fiancé and I wanted to have our wedding dinner at The White Rabbit in October. Therefore, we tried to book parts of the restaurant non-exclusively for the evening. Within the process of booking starting in May we talked and wrote to three different persons working at The White Rabbit. In every
