These mussels were fresh and really big. They tasted very sweet, however the only let down was the sauce itself.  The garlic was too strong and not enough sauce to dip my bread into.

Three of us ordered this each and it looks better than it taste.  It was smaller than I expected, not enough to full me up.  The fish wasn’t fresh enough, no seasoning and slightly cold in the middle. i would not recommend this to anyone
Whole Cornish Lemon Sole, chilli, herb & crab meat butter – 9/10

This was amazing, although I only got to have a few bites of it.  But it was huge, enough to fill two ladies up.  The fish was beautifully cooked and the melted butter on it was superbly done.
Australian Wagyu steak, chips – 7/10

The steak was average, nothing special.  I am not a huge fan of Australian steak, even when I was in Australia the beef didn’t blow me away.  The steak here was beautifully cooked to medium and nicely salted with salt.

Verdict

This isn’t my first time to Wright Brothers.  My first time was definitely a better experience, the food was better and most importantly the service was better. This time, the lady who served us had an attitude problem.  She seemed very unhelpful and rude when I asked her question regarding the menu.  For example I asked her regarding about the sauces the mussels was served in as there was only one sort on menu (curry or laksa), I asked if it could be cooked in white wine sauce instead.  Somehow she was very rude with her reply and somehow made me feel stupid. She seem to be in a rush and kept rushing us, and was impatience when I had questions or when we paused to look at menu.  I didn’t like how rushed she was, and she would push in front of me to get the empty plates. i do not like the customer service especially when she will have her arms/hands touching ur shoulder, head, and face when reaching or serving the food, she does it without noticing you or apologizing.  

  I won’t be returning just for the service and the food has gone downhill. The cod was awful, lack of seasoning or should I say no seasoning at all and not fresh.  There are other great seafood restaurants with more attentive service (at least they apologize).  My first time here was fantastic, however if I had to pay this price for average seafood dishes with no surprises and bad service, I rather go somewhere else.
