Slow service, got half of our orders wrong. And terribly disorganised, as they charged our drinks to another table! There are plenty of fish restaurants in Stratford, so avoid this one.

We went to the Riverbank for a family get together and I have to say the food and service was amazing. Our meals were perfect and we didn't have a long wait even though there was 12 in our party. The staff were very friendly...More
