What people say about Duende restaurant

Duende chef Tim Zekki’s pop up restaurant:

“I just wanted to thank you for a fabulous evening on Friday at – Ashley Green. Your menu was amazing, the food absolutely delicious, the staff very friendly. “


“We went to Ashley Green last night and I must say, we all really enjoyed our food, it was delicious.  The staff were really efficient too and looked after us all night.  Please pass on our congratulations to Tim and the team.”


“Just want to say what a great meal we had at the pop up restaurant in Ashley Green. Each course was wonderful and the staff lovely. The hall looked so different and the atmosphere was so friendly and relaxed, I’m afraid that we probably outstayed our welcome!”

“Incredible meal @thelopearedpig #popup Ballinger last nt. Sublime dining experience. Friendly, helpful staff & hall looked gr8 #Duende”

“I just wanted to congratulate you on such an enjoyable evening. I had booked a table for 10, and I have already had emails from friends saying how much they loved it.  The village hall didn’t even look like the village hall, and most importantly the food was excellent, and wonderful value for money.”

“Wow, what a fantastic night! Just wanted to thank everyone involved; it was obvious how much effort had gone into the enterprise and you should all be feeling very proud because you’ve nailed it!”

“I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff very much indeed for the quite spectacular meal that we had in the Temperance Hall. It was truly delicious, beautifully presented and extremely good value which meant that we could adequately reward your excellent serving staff on the night! We have been fortunate enough to have had lunch last year at Raymond Blanc’s manor and my wife commented after the meal at The Temperance Hall that it came a very close second. We very much look forward to ‘Le pop up’ returning soon!”

“We ate here last month at one of the tapas evenings. Many varied dishes with lovely fresh ingredients and delicious flavours throughout the evening. Great atmosphere, relaxed and friendly. The fact that you take your own wine makes it a very affordable evening. Loved it!!”

“Have been twice now, tapas and steak nights. Both time the food was excellent, and great value. Tim takes the time to prepare good food with quality ingredients and comes out to check if everything is to your satisfaction. Nice not to have to worry about wine lists, just take your own. The staff are great and all in all a real little hidden gem.”

“Wow. What a great night with delicious food. The restaurant ambiance was perfect and the food matched. Delicious. Well done. I will be looking out for the next pop-up. Highly recommend.”


Food and lifestyle blogger Hero Brown, from Muddy Stillettoes, said:

“The most important thing wherever you go is of course the vibe and the food and I just loved Duende last night.”

“the service was slick and the food was fabulous.”

“I’d tip the wink particularly to the beef, date cous cous, tomato and chickpeas and… well frankly the whole thing was great.”
