I have experienced all these in varying degrees. I think they serve food at different times because they somehow think that they are doing some extra waiting service by going up and down the kitchen to your table and therefore deserve more tips.JR8 wrote:
- Dishes for our group of about six, all arrived at very different times. We were seated outside and it wasn't that warm, so those that had food couldn't wait for the rest to arrive.
- My wife's main was a shrimp dish in cream sauce on pasta. There were 3 shrimp IIRC. The 'cream sauce' tasted of nothing, so much so it could have been simply flour+water+a pinch of salt (yes, honestly and literally). The sauce constituted maybe 50% of the volume of the dish, i.e. completely drowned. When the pasta and shrimp were eaten there was still getting on for 1/2 pint of solidifying gloop in the dish.
I reckon it's because the 'chef' only has one microwave oven, and as nothing in such places appears cooked from scratch to order, one dish gets micro'd at a time.rajagainstthemachine wrote: I have experienced all these in varying degrees.

True but please keep posting those.nakatago wrote:If you posted every time you find a bad place to eat...rajagainstthemachine wrote:found yet another bad place, Beirut on arab st. overpriced food with terrible service. The food and decor itself isn't bad but the terrible service is a turn off.

I think we had whole threads for this a while back.rajagainstthemachine wrote:Here are what I perceive are fundamental service problems that should be addressed.
1.waiters not knowing what a particular item on the menu means.. standard response is "I'll check with the cook" and then eff off and not return or come back and say oh thats not served anymore.
2. Serving stuff for people at the same time. e.g bring out tea for one person and then come back with coffee five minutes later. The same applies with food.
That goes as well for taking away plates at the same time, and not rushing the experience by doing while the customer still have food in their mouths or only finished chewing less than 30 seconds earlier. Sounds pretty obvious, but happens all the time here
3. providing cutlery plates condiments etc., in yesterdays place, they came out with a mezze plate for two people and 1 spoon.
so we asked for a couple of forks and the waiter eyeballed me with a quizzical look.
And providing a knife and not expecting customers to use the spoon as a knife. More people should really speak up about this one. Makes for a real low-rent experience.
4. Not providing drinking water. how hard can this simple task get?
Or worse, charging for it.
I can go on and on and on
You left out portion size... the plate is a "presentation" and you need a magnifying glass to see your main course.Brah wrote:Tonight - nice restaurant, tasteless food, a twice-missed order, music too loud, and prices higher than places that serve better food.
Does this indicate that the "food" was mass manufactured off site and delivered?Arsenal_fan wrote:And just when you thought things could not get worse

Would have expected something like this to happen in one of the hawker centers but not in a mall outlet.
