Lido, long-time resident in William Street has modified sides of the street – shifting throughout subsequent to Bar 399 to a lot smaller premises and a smaller menu in addition. It has additionally misplaced its liquor licence within the transfer and is now strictly BYO. The waiters are nonetheless pleasant and welcoming and have been fast to convey out an ice-bucket for our bottle of rosé once we popped in for lunch.
A few rice paper rolls began us off – the rice paper was a tad too thick however the filling was advantageous – sliced prawn and crunchy greens, and the peanutty dipping sauce was nice sufficient.
For mains, a dish of fried rice with egg and onion was fairly good – shiny rice, loads of onion and garlic flavours, and an excellent topping of egg strips.
Along with the rice deep fried toothfish with chilli, salt and pepper flavours – properly cooked fish, crisp coating, and juicy and loads of tender fish inside – the salt and pepper flavours have been good though the chilli element not likely evident – we requested for extra chilli on the aspect and this splashed over gave it a a lot wanted zip. If you’re in search of a spicy meal then additional chill on the aspect is really helpful.
Lido has set just a little totally different path than earlier than when the menu was a lot bigger, however the meals we had was properly ready and each generously sized and well-priced.
