Don’t bother bad service
I came with clients of mine to have lunch and the door man(with a bear):”there is no seat for you 3 inside!” 2 minutes later, 2 ladies come in with no booking, and the doorman:”wait for a moment, I am sure we can find seats for you inside” We then get them to take our order, he replied:” 1 second, are you in hurry?” I am really not sure what is that all about. I come for good food and do not put up for bad service (some person that have chip in their shoulder), perhaps he must earn quite a good bucks that’s why he can’t be bother. But be mindful that there are lots of restaurant who can serve much better food and at least have the basic manner or courtesy. These bad services can easily be spread out by the word of mouth. I just need to tell all my friends and colleagues, then see you later. That’s all I can say. Worse dining experience. If you are bringing girl friend and want a bad service meal, I am sure you can find him here at the entrance. Food is good but not great.
