NOT: Arbutus Restaurant, 61-64 Frith Street Soho

Admittedly the Michelin starred food was great for the price (about 18 for a main). But the experience was marred by the crappy service. We had to ask for bread three times. The potatoes dauphinois came out after everyone had finished their steaks, and only after a reminder from us. When my duck came out with a swirl of mashed turnip and some red cabbage, I asked whether I could order a side of greens. The response: "The dish is already well balanced." WTF??? I don't need to be patronised for 12.5% tip. Never ever ever again.
