Owner's description

The Blind Tiger is a deep crimson 1920s style space, seating 80, with good-looking and good-tasting food and cocktails to match.

The cuisine focus is described to be Californian, which is a mash-up of Asian, Mexican and American tastes, eaten in the lots-of-little-plates way or on big dinner plates. Swap and share a black bean and onion quesadilla with tomato and sour cream, plus a New Orleans style brie baguette with caramelised onions and apples, plus Korean chicken wings with honey-and-lime sriracha, plus a shrimp and green bean tempura with  gingery dipping sauce. For dessert just try that Californian flourless chocolate cake before you say a word.

Dip into the 1920s style Giggle Waters like the Great Gatsby’s Inverroche gin, elderflower cordial and sour mix, topped with tonic and a cutesy maraschino cherry. There are also cocktails in 20's glasses like Sidecars and Manhattans and a selection of those late-clubby drinks like the WooWoo of vodka, Archers and cranberry. The Bloody Mary is already a legend and could well feature on the Brunch menu, soon to be launched too.

    Blind Tiger Having heard some buzz about this nifty little pub along the Parkview strip, my friend and I decided this was where we'd do Friday night drinks. Upon entry, Blind Tiger has a welcoming aura about it; a dimly lit, crimson-coloured and homey space. Despite first impressions being that the space is quite small, we were later to discover that through a passage there is a larger seating area, just as intimate as the main one and so don't be put off when you see the bar section packed. We had to try something off the "Giggle Water" section of the drinks menu and having tasted the "Great Gatsby", were not to be disappointed. To eat, venturing into Mexican territory, we opted for the quesadilla (black bean as well as cheese with sides of salsa) and were left smacking our lips. The food (from a clearly well thought out menu) was lovely and perfect for something you'd find in a pub. For dessert we split the platter (within which you can find touches of brownie as well as lemon meringue to lick your lips to), which was light enough to not have us buckling over but also filling enough to be satisfying and bring a MIDNIGHT end to a lovely evening. Throughout the experience, our waitress was incredibly attentive and always available without hovering too much. You can just tell that all the staff aim to provide a service that surpasses all others, especially in how they strive to make you feel at home. Overall, a very enjoyable experience highly recommended. Definitely my new spot of choice for amazing cocktails
    This is a great new "local" in Parkview. The menu is small, but absolutely superb gastropub food. I had the steak sandwich which was fresh and delicious and very reasonably priced, served with shoestring fries. They have a great cocktail menu, and the staff are very attentive.T he owner is hands on and very friendly. Lovely cosy atmosphere, and there will be a pub garden opening at the back of the restaurant in summer. This will definitely be on our "favourite places to go" list.
