Thunder Dome Café – A Sunday Afternoon Delight!

Restaurant Review – by Alan Thompson

WE STOPPED at the Thunder Dome Café in Glengormley last Sunday not knowing what to expect – what a delightful experience we then encountered.

The first thing that hits you about the place are the unbelievable surroundings. Lots of money has been invested in the modern American style layout. But would the food live up to the
setting – we were not to be disapointed.

For starters I chose the home made soup and my partner chose the cajun crumbed musrooms with garlic dip. Both were exceptional, the best we’ve had in a long time. The soup was home made vegetable, and I mean home made. It was on a par with my own mothers recipe, which I thought would never be equalled until now.

Moving on to the main course we both plumped for prime roast silverside of beef with Yorkshire pudding and roast gravy. The dish was served with vegetables and we had a great selection of potatoes. Each dish was cooked exactly as we had asked, with portions being well above average. A superb Sunday lunch in a superb setting.

As well as the quality of the food, what really sets the Thunder Dome apart from anything else is the standard of the service. Have you, as we have, recently been out for a meal, had a good one only to have the experience ruined by abominable service? Have no worries at the Thunder Dome Café. The staff acted like a polite, well-marshalled army. In fact we were overwhelmed by the attention lauded on us, absolutely excellent! The value was also exceptional, a Sunday two course lunch costimg £9.95 each with a wide choice of menu. Fancy a lazy Sunday afternoon treat? Get down to the Thunder Dome Café and set yourself up for the week ahead.

Thunder Dome Café, Antrim Road, Glengormley. Tel: (028) 9034 2266.
