My diet was out the window, down the street and off on a bus to sometime never today when myself, my husband and one year old twinkles visited Jimmy’s World Grill All You Can Eat in Bath.
When we first saw the entrance we were a little apprehensive noticing the restaurant was on the first floor and the prospect of carrying our heavy weight twinkles with a positively enormous double buggy up two flights of stairs was not something we were looking forward too however upon entering the foyer area it became clear there was a lift in full working order. Our very own back saver. The lift ensured that the restaurant really could cater for all parties young, old, able and infirm.
We were greeted immediately by some very friendly and helpful staff who seated us promptly and made sure our table was fit for the needs of our party of four. Staff helpfully rejigged furniture to accommodate our table of two high chairs, it was clear that even the most awkward of parties would be accommodated. High chairs were readily available throughout the restaurant.
Our drinks order was taken as soon as we were comfortable and straight away they were brought to our table. A member of staff then explained the concept behind the restaurant and took me on a walk around explaining where all items could be found. His explanations were clear and considered. The restaurant provided Italian, Chinese, Thai and Indian cuisine along with salad and dessert stations. There were fresh cooking stations where different dishes like stir-fry and naan breads could be made to order and to your liking. Needless to say the walk around made me all the more ready to fill my boots with the goodies that were everywhere.
The food itself was beautiful and varied. There were dishes I’d never tried before and one particular dish I hadn’t eaten since I visited India in 2004. I was so excited to get to eat it again and it was still just as delicious. There was lots of choice and variety this was a great experience for my very foodie 1 year olds who merrily tried curries, breads, sweet and sour and a salad or two. This diverse experience is excellent for children who may not always like everything but are willing to try. My husband was particularly impressed with the naan bread cooking station and as not sharing with me was able to enjoy a peshwari naan for the first time in quite a while. Our plates were cleared as soon as we finished and we were able to pick clean plates each time we visited the food counters.
All staff throughout the visit were friendly and approachable. The entire restaurant was immaculately clean and well presented. It was a busy Saturday lunch service however it in no way detracted from the enjoyable eating experience we had. There were toilets available for customer use. They too were very clean and well presented. My only criticism or area for improvement was that the restaurant didn’t have a baby changing area available in the men’s, women’s toilets or in the unisex disabled toilet. This is a fantastically family friendly restaurant and the addition of a changing station in the disabled toilet would really improve its accessibility to all families.
The buffet costs £10.99 per adult its half price for children under 11 and those infants under 4 eat completely for free. This isn’t the cheapest restaurant in the world but the quality of food and the quantity of choice is outstanding. This restaurant is highly recommended by the McCarthy family. We left Jimmy’s World Grill having eaten a banquet of incredibly good food and obviously in the very best company.
We give this restaurant a both delicious and delectable 4 out of 5.
