Dim t Winchester – Restaurant Review

Rating: 0.5 out of 5.

Dim t is located quite close to the Arc in Winchester. The entrance to it is quite misshapen with one door and then the next with a tight space in-between. This meant I had to manoeuvre two or three times to get through it. I did not need to use the disabled toilet, but it was of a standard size which was expected but it didn’t accommodate all disabled customers.

The accessibility and space within the restaurant were questionable, and the layout was confusing. Tables and chairs were positioned in tight groups particularly on the lift side, leaving the right side empty with only a few tables and chairs leaving me access. There were a few floors to the restaurant which I couldn’t access as it was just stair access. As expected, the tables were too low for me to get underneath and the way it was positioned compared to everything around it was difficult for me

Despite it being the evening rush, the restaurant was very quiet, almost vacant. There was no real atmosphere which was a real shame. The staff were really nice and gave good customer service. They spoke to me directly rather than to the person whom I was with which I really appreciated.

Dim t serves Chinese style food, and the menu was quite big with several starters and mains. I choose a lemon chicken covered with breadcrumbs, sticky egg fried rice and of course, prawn crackers. The prawn crackers were moreish, and the sticky egg fried rice was fresh and had flavour which I liked. Sadly, the chicken in breadcrumbs was overdone and it took away from the taste of the chicken, but I loved it with zingy lemon sauce. For dessert, I had a ginger sponge cake with a salted caramel sauce. I can describe it as sticky toffee pudding. It was nice but sickly sweet. I should have got the desert to share instead of eating it on my own, it was too much.

The restaurant was nice enough and alright for a meal every so often.
