Almost everyone has experienced the terrible frustration that comes with lousy service at a restaurant.
We spoke to two Durban chefs, Kevin Joseph, who is the Executive Chef at The Oyster Box and Shaun Munro who is the Executive Chef at Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani hotel about their thoughts on what makes a good restaurant.
“The main thing about a good restaurant is really consistency. It’s about making sure that you cater for the guests needs. Most restaurants now the chef is creating dishes around what he feels should be served but in actual fact what he or she should be doing is creating according to the clientele’s needs.
The main thing for me that I look out for in a restaurant is to know that every time I go there to eat a specific meal it’s going to taste exactly how I remember it to be. It’s about making sure that when I walk in people recognise me, the waiter remembering even my favourite drink, but also suggesting new things to me that I can try so that I can always find a new dish that I can always come back for”.
