This is a lovely restaurant in Oadby where the food is quite delicious, however I agree with another of your reviewers, if they do not want to accept Groupon bookings why sign up for it; it makes the diner quite uncomfortable.

It's sad that there are more negatives than positives about this place because the food was actually very nice so compliments to the chef(s). However, we won't be returning mainly due to the arrogance of front of house (who we assume is the owner). I was spoken to in an extremely rude manner at the time of booking (particularly once he established that I had a Groupon) which did not fill me with confidence. He then berated our waiter and waitress (when they had done nothing wrong) in front of our table while at the same time telling us that we had ordered a red wine when we had categorically ordered a white wine. I worked for years in a restaurant and the way he operates and deals with people (staff and customers) is just not acceptable. The restaurant itself was so dimly lit you could barely see what you were eating and the toilets well ........ need updating to say the very least. They are disgusting!!!! It's a shame but we won't be visiting again, there are much nicer places to eat, for the same price, where you are treated with respect.

A complete waste of money: I along with another couple have eaten at Cheikhos before. Our initial visit using a groupon voucher was great, the food,atmosphere and service was great. I purchased another voucher as theres no stipulations in the terms that you had to be a new customer. Last week I along with my relations booked for a meal using a groupon voucher which was declared at that time. Upon arrival I was told by the owner Sami that our table had been cancelled! Incidentally by someone using the same name and landline number as was used to book - Honest lady!! Unfortunately at the time he said this happened we were all at Fosse Park. The couple that had the seafood starters would only describe it as horrible and from what I saw of the small shrivelled mussels some in broken shells - I couldn't disagree more. I was looking forward to the tagliatelle chicken which I had had previous and to be honest when it arrived it didn't resemble the previous dish. Long strips of chicken in a white sauce had been replaced with small chunks in a yellow sauce and undercooked pasta. The men order 2 Peroni beers which were definitely not this brand. During the hour that I was there 3 tables were left uncleared whilst Sami dressed in a jumper and a flat cap,sat at the bar on his phone. The toilet bowl and hand towel were filthy and to be honest I couldn't wait to leave. It was a total waste of money and advise anyone going on a repeat groupon - don't go. the whole evening was a disaster and yes I should have complained about everything but didn't feel the time was right as there was another table of 3 dining. However, rest assured I will be contacting the relevant departments regarding my findings. I would never set foot into this place again and having been associated with food for some 20 odd years feel its a disgrace.
