Not same food not same service very dessapointed never again . We get 5 types of meet 3 beef, 1 sausages, pork , for the fish dish some calamari 5 little king prawns and we need to ask for them we didn’t got any menus and explanation was a horrible experience, we came 1 hour drive from Tunbridge Wells never again sorry
Worth a visit, drinks are rather expensive though.
£18 for one pint of lager and one cocktail. Either very expensive or more likely, RIPPED OFF.
Fantastic restaurant with great Latino atmosphere and fantastic service! The meats were amazingly flavorful and we couldn’t keep up ! Definitely should save your appetite and minimize the sides or you’ll be too full to enjoy all that’s offered! Melina was a great server and bartender! She made it a fun evening! Definitely recommend dining here.
Had a lovely meal just a change from the usual harvester or beefeater, i had visited before but not rest of the family , the enjoyed the variety and quality.Well presented great food,great hosts and friendly password.Would recommend
The food & service was excellent. Was a little worried we wouldn’t be offered much meat or left waiting but it was constant - group of 8 and all left very happy and very full
Anniversary meal for 2. Never been before and what a welcome too. They had put a big Happy Anniversary banner on the table with balloons before we arrived. Now that is special. Thank you.
The food is amazing. Freshly BBQ’d while you watch and it arrives on hot skewers and cut off in front of you. The waiting staff are brilliant and the food looked amazing and fresh salad etc.
Will definitely be going back. When I’ve lost the weight from this last meal.
I went there to celebrate my son's birthday. It was not cheap and some of the meat choices were not tender.
10%service charge is added on automatically. I had to ask them to take it off the bill as I would like to be in charge of how much tip I am leaving. The buffet style food was very limited and not very special. Definitely not worth the money. Sorry
Had a lovely meal will be going back again very soon
I'd personally call this place - an ultimate eating place. Judge for yourselves - plenty of sides: rice, beans, salads, sausage meat, sauces, cheese, etc. Then 6 or 12 meats of any kind - beef, pork, chicken plus seafood - in rotation, brought to your table. Plus - eat as much as you like. Add great beer - I had draught Goose Island IPA - and you get... Xenia. The only con - self-service for sides might be a bit unusual for a start, this is not kind of "sit down-read menu-place an order-wait-eat-pay-go home" place... so don't expect a piece of steak on your plate. Don't get me wrong - there is steak (garlic beef steak, oh my!), but the way it is served is different from what you might be used to.
Unfortunately despite stating that we needed space for a double pushchair when booking, we arrived to find that the restaurant is upstairs and the lift is broken. No one had borhered to ring us to say. We had travelled 40 minutes to get to this restaurant. My husband asked what we should do and they had no alternative. What if someone were to arrive in a wheelchair? Utterly unacceptable. We were left with no choice but to go elsewhere without a booking. Happy anniversary to us!
New experience . Meat brought out on skewers but nicely seasoned. Buffet area with salad and other food such mussels in wine sauce, different rice, mushrooms in garlic sauce. Really enjoyed it.
Service and Food was good, the waitress that helped is was amazing, i think her name was Sophia
We were seated out side. It was cold and windy.
The food was cold.
The red and green disc ment nothing.
We got our salad when eating salad we got offered meat lots of times.
When we had eaten our salad we did not see much meat at all.
We had to ask 3 times for seafood only got offered it once.
Had to ask for drinks.
We found it not to be very clean.
Table was dirty.
There was cig buts on the floor.
I have been here loads of times and every time is better than the last
Lovely food, great service and good drinks promotions. Suitable for a family meal, occasion or date night. Would defiantly recommend lots of food choice and the staff are very accommodating.
Excellent experience and delicious food constantly being offered. Also, brilliant and friendly service from Milena
A group of 10 of us visited for my birthday get together and we started early with cocktails and went on to have dinner and then more cocktails. We were very well looked after by the lovely hostess, and enjoyed many cocktails! We had a superb large circular table, and it was a fab evening .... great place for a girlie get-together! Will be back!
Second visit in a year!!
Good friendly vibe running through the place
Service was very good (that’s important) cocktails splendid
Food in the self service area was looking a bit tired!!
There was a large birthday party going on which didn’t interfere with our experience at all
Overall definitely coming back for more and would recommend to anyone who likes dining drinking cocktails and dancing all under one roof !!
Great staff and service. Plenty of options of tasty food
Really great atmosphere with friendly staff! Had a great laugh. Meat was cooked exceptionally! Thanks very much.
Food is very good. Service overall is good and the meatboys are great. Drinks take a long time to arrive.
first time at this restaurant. bad communication from staff. No set procedure. adhoc table service . dirty floors and tables .
If you are a vegetarian, don't bother. However, if you like meat, I mean REALLY like meat, I mean REALLY, REALLY like meat you will not find a better place to eat, anywhere. I've eaten a lot of meat over the years in a lot of places but this is still living in my taste buds a week later. Garlic Beef - OMG - beautiful, memorable, just ...... indescribable. Got to stop now, need food.
Had a nice time - first occasion we’ve been here for lunch and the atmosphere is obviously not a lively as an evening booking. This was to celebrate our daughters birthday and we took our grandchildren who were made most welcome. We requested two types of bottled beer and neither were available as they had run out completely. The staff were very apologetic and we had good friendly service from them. All in all
Good value for money and delicious meat options.
Lovely service and fun food. They tried hard to get it right and deliver a great experience. Only negative is that the decor is a little tired.
Friendly Staff, Good food and the service was good!
Food was good and service was amazing. Good choice of sides at the buffet
Great place with great service and great atmosphere and great food
Waited over 30min before being offered any food, out of the 16 meats we recived 6 in an hour one of which was garlic bread and the meat we did recive was either burnt or tough.
Meat OK, not the best though. We didn't have the chance to try the other meals rather than meat as we were too full, they SHOULD advice the half menu is NOT available on Friday.
Ambiance was lacking, for a Friday evening it was poor. The service was poor, the food was ok, albeit very slow service, until the chicken thigh that was served to my dad which was bloody and undercooked. Unhealthy and dangerous. Was given my bill despite mentioning to a member of staff about the chicken and how it had put my dad off (we were actually out to celebrate dads birthday), this hadnt been reflected on with the bill. Had to then ask for his meal to be taken off the bill as he hadn’t eaten hardly anything. His meal was taken off after asking, however we will not be returning.
Good value, reasonable food with great staff. Definitely will be going again and recommending friends. Decent owner.
Excellent food, service, cocktails, value, choice would recommend and will go back :)
I've been at xenia first time and I'm really pleased with it. The staff was amazing. Very kind and professional. Food amazing. Great for someone that loves tasting different kind of meat and food. Great price for an amazing value. Would recommend to anyone and definitely will go back there.
Not much choice menu wise. Too much not so great meat. The buffet looked like a school canteen.
Tried this place for the first time and im definatley going back,meat was unreal and the staff very friendly,highly reccommended.
Thought we would try this restaurant as we hadn't tried Brazillian Rodizio before, although it was a pleasant experience, some of the food that came out was a little dry (especially chicken wrapped in bacon and the fish, some of the steak meats that came out were a little tough to chew and fatty, compared to other restaurants it did border a little on the expensive side for the quality of food ( £75 for 2 mains and 2 drinks) It was something different but probably wont be going again.
Overpriced, limited selection of meats, all beef is burned
I have now been here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. It's absolutely great. Cocktails were tasty, food delicious, staff friendly... Honestly overall experience was great.
The negative points?
In the evening the music was a touch loud, which meant you had to raise your voice to chat, the only food I didn't like was the calamari, was just overcooked and rubbery, and the drinks took quite a while to arrive at the table.
The only other negative was device was included in the bill. I'm an overtipper especially when service is good, but when service is included infind myself going "fine, that's all you get then" - they would have got double that had they not included it.
Have previously been and enjoyed it but went for my sons birthday and was terrible. Food was poor, service only interested in trying to sell more drinks, cleaning the restaurant whilst we were eating, no ambience and VERY expensive for what we had. Disappointed 😔
