TGI Friday’s Reading offers casual American dining in a bustling setting. Enjoy their renowned stateside dishes with a cocktail from the bar, and dine outdoors during warmer weather.

Jam-packed juicy burgers are the highlight of the TGI Friday’s menu. Enjoy prime cuts of British Isles beef topped with a range of exciting ingredients, like the ‘Bruce Lee’ with spicy Asian slaw, crispy noodles and jalapenos. An American grill menu serves up hearty dishes like tender rump steak, baby back pork ribs glazed in Jack Daniel’s, and Cajun-battered shrimp.

Famed for its fantastic cocktail selection, diners at TGI Friday’s can challenge bar tenders to rustle up a mix from its 500-strong list, like the classic strawberry daiquiri, or the signature raspberry-spiked Haymarket. Cooling slushes, chilled beers, wines and thick shakes are also on offer.

A wonderful combination of vibrant cuisine and minimalist décor is evident at TGI Friday’s in Reading, an 8-minute walk from the Reading Rail Station.

    Service slow. Food was cold.
    Manager rude. Had to put my coat on due to cold draft.

    The food was fantastic and with the Christmas menu deal it was great value.

    The restaurant was very cold and the service was very slow due to low staffing. I've found the same issue in the last few times I've visited there, service has gone downhill sine the Oracle TGIs opened. There were also no wipes after we had the sticky wings - they used to provide this before.

    Feel it is now over priced for the quality of food and service you get.

    I chose TGI Fridays as it was a lively, yet simple choice to take my niece to between the Christmas/New Year period. Standard of food in my opinion is average on a general scale, however on this occasion despite the restaurant being under a quarter full, the food standard was average to poor - Thrown together and over the average smothering in sauces. Hygiene was poor - sticky table with no cutlery. Service was terrible - Food arrived in good time, but we were as good as ignored by staff. When we asked for cutlery, it arrived at least 10 minutes later, and with one serviette between two. After starters and when main arrived, again, no cutlery, no asking if we wanted anything else. When we asked for cutlery and mayonnaise I ended up finding cutlery myself and our sauce request never arrived. Disappointing and reminds me of why I seldom go to a TGI Fridays.

    Great atmosphere and great service. Food took a while but expected with Christmas and all the Christmas parties going on

    The dining experience was generally ok - the Winter bruschetta and Fajitas were lovely. However not all members of the party had cutlery when they arrived and the person who had the allergen menu did not have a place name with their order written on the back like the rest of the party. The two members of party who ordered the steak could not finish their meal as the steak was too salty and one asked for mixed salad instead of chips but got chips anyway. The puddings were delicious however there was too much cream at the top of the sundaes. The music was too loud so we had to shout to be able to hear each other.
    The cocktails were great and the service we received was brilliant.

    Absolutely loved it, we had such a friendly waiter called Marley. Who made myself and my partner welcome and had a good laugh with us also!
