What makes you think it might be closed? Hope it is not as it's our favourite lunch time venue!

I think there was talk at the end of the season that the lease was not to be renewed. There were many negative posts regarding Sinbads at that time too. Not sure where they were now but will probably come up under search.

Was unfortunate enough to have eaten here last week the worst dinning experience of my life,I suppose the blackboards should have been enough of a warning

You need to be careful too as they encourage you in with their blackboards offering good value menu and then tell you that it is not available but recommend something else. What they don't tell you is that the recommendation is at least double the cost. We were ripped off badly there as well as having awful food. The Waitress can be either rude or very over familiar with the males in the party. Personally I would rather starve then go back to this restaurant.

Some will say I am not qualified to post re simbads as I have ne er eaten there
However, it just looks terrible - all those blackboards - visually it just puts me off
Surely it must have the same affect on many people but on the other hand they have been there for years so must have some loyal clientel and also pick up passing trade
So what is it about a place that looks as it does that attracts people in ?

I have passed here quite a few times and it always seems busy. I always think if somewhere is busy then it must be good. I am sure many people do the same. Anyway, I did try it once and found the food mediocre and staff a bit surly. Will not rush back as there are many better restaurants in PP.

Adios

I am afraid that my opinion of Simbad is the same as many other's and I have had the misfortune to eat here on a few occassions - as has been said the food has always been very poor - normally overcooked and as Eleanor said, the owner is overly familiar and suggestive (I don't mind a bit of friendly banter and flirting) bordering on crude.

I will not return if I can avoid it.
