Vu Lounge

VU Lounge is a restaurant located in Watford 🇬🇧 and I must say it is a boujee looking place🔥 I have been meaning to visit here for a while but was put off with all the mixed reviews....some people love it and some hate it 🤷🏻‍♀️ I will simply share mine and my friends experience on this occasion.

First and foremost, we visited around 5 pm so it was not too busy around that time and had booked in advance (standard policy these days).

Pro’s: We ordered a variety of mocktails including the Classic Mojito: Passion Fruit and the Vu-Star Martini which were on point 👌 The star of the show was, of course, the Birthday Baklava (£35) which was wrapped in 24 CT Gold. It came with a sparkler 🎇🕯, a birthday song and was presented in a really fun way...perfect birthday treat. Also, it tasted SO GOOD! We all agreed it was one of the best baklavas we had! Although, we did also order the Turkish Baklava’s (£8 each) which were nice but not as good as the Birthday one...I would happily eat that again (but not for that price unless it’s my birthday😅)! The staff were also friendly 🥰

Con’s: We ordered the Lokum Steak which did taste and look good...but it was not ‘wow’ or one of the best steaks I’ve had. I was glad it was cut in thin slices though. Their overall style was similar too (but not as good as) the steak from Etci Mehmet in Manchester (now that was BANGING!) I know I shouldn’t compare however, it just didn’t wow me and unfortunately, we were still hungry 🙈 (which we then made up with the desserts which were on point😋).

Note: So the experience started off well, as there were fewer people, however as soon as it started to get busier...the service started to go downhill. For example, we literally asked for water about 5 times from different waiters before we finally got it 🤦🏻‍♀️

Would I go again? Yes! I really want to try their Turkish Breakfast...maybe after lockdown 👀

Like I said this place has a lot of mixed reviews! I’ve seen some bloggers rave about it and some absolutely hate it saying they would never go again! This was of course the experience on the day. Please do let me know below 🔥
