Presumably not as disappointing as the meals it describes
on 18 November 2014
This was a bit of a disappointment. From previous reviews I had expected to laugh out loud at least once, and preferably once per piece. Instead of which it left me largely unmoved, apart from a slow, but perceptible, slide into depression. The individual reports would doubtless have served as useful warnings in their time, but by now practically all the restaurants concerned must have either changed hands or simply died. The collection was really all about schadenfreude, but for this reviewer the schaden just weren't freude enough!
