Terrible Restaurant
  1 / 10
Auriga Restaurant in Aberdeen has to be the worst restaurant I have ever had the displeasure of eating in. Avoid it all costs!! Don't get me wrong the look of the restaurant is ok, and it has a nice lay out inside, but that is where the positives end. To be honest i should have picked up on the signs from the start, we were the only ones to be gracing this establishment on Easter Sunday, when everywhere else was presumably packed to the rafters. Sign number two, pictures of the food items were on the menu, thought you only got this in greasy cafes on the continent.

Anyway, we stupidly ignored all the signs, and decided to try the food. Oh how I regret that decision, I ordered chicken with black pudding in a spicy tomato sauce with home made fries. When the food came, I was amazed at the lack of finesse, the dish looked like it had been dropped on the floor, then scraped back onto the plate, expected a bit more for my £13. I tentatively tried my first mouth full, the chicken was the consistency of rubber, and appeared to have been sitting around for days, waiting for the chef to reheat it in the microwave. Upon scrapping off the foul black pudding and spicy sauce it was apparent that the whole chicken breast was dried out, and more akin to crisp than a juicy chicken breast. The apparent chips, were a dirty brown as they had obviously been cooked in month old oil. I can honestly say that I have never seen such a piece of terrible cookery in my whole life. After bringing the dire state of the meal to the attention of the waitress, she assured me that they would cook me up another one, no chance, god knows what would have arrived in front of me this time.
Now for the my girlfriends dish, my girlfriend ordered the lamb dish at an incredible £18, for this price I thought this was going to be a top class dish, Ha!! The dish itself was as badly presented as mine. The lamb was one large lump of fat drowned in a sticky brown bisto like gravy. The so called mash was obviously smash from a packet, the veg was so past it?s best it was unbelievable, the broccoli was so off it had turned yellow, yet the so called chef had the audacity to send this out for human consumption. I was so astounded that any self respecting chef could send out a such a poor meal, you can probably pick up the same quality of meat from Farmfoods for £1.99. After telling the waitress that we would rather just have the bill than risk trying to eat this disgusting food, they had the cheek to charge us for the food we obviously weren?t going to let pass our lips. Unbelievably, the manager did not even see fit to come and speak to us, or apologise for the abomination they were trying to pass off as food. I can honestly say that this is quite possibly, no definitely the worst meal I have ever seen put in front of me in a restaurant.

I know that this is rather a long winded review, but I can only say that I feel so strongly about the whole experience I had to try and convey how absolutely awful this place is, take my advice and avoid this place at all costs.
