Recently opened, and with the backing of the Axil name, it seemed like the perfect spot for a foodie gathering. The four of us went along, excited to check out the venue, and sample the menu.
It was a Sunday morning, and the place was already fairly busy. We had to wait ~15-20mins for a table, but we had plenty of things to chat about in the meantime, so it didn't feel like a long time.
Soon after we sat down wit some menus, our waitress came by promptly to take our coffee orders. This, we took as a promising sign.
However soon after, a few of Mayday's teething problems quickly became apparent. Our coffees were delivered by confused staff who didn't whom had ordered what, or what drink order they were actually delivering to us.
The food, whilst all presented beautifully, failed to satisfy, and some dishes were just outright disappointing. The three of us who had ordered savory dishes with poached eggs found that our eggs had all been overcooked. All three of them. To exacerbate the problem, my potato croquette was soggy in the middle, and tasted as if the batter hadn't been mixed properly, or didn't contain enough egg to bind the mixture properly.
