Don't ever go there! Bad attitude and racist! The owner is a bully!!! I was there with my elderly parents watching a EURO cup game. Before I ordered I asked the waitress if they will turn on the volume for the game and she said yes and they are trying to fix it so I ordered drinks but hold off on food until they get the system fixed - who want to watch the game with no volume!?!!? 15 mins late she said their owner is coming over to fix the system. 30 mins later that owner came but said they won't be putting the volume on and he said we need to order food otherwise we have to immediately pay for the drinks and leave. Instead of being apologetic, he actually bullied us when my dad complained that the waitress tricked us into ordering drinks with promise that volume on TV will be turned on. That bully got angry and threaten to call police to kick us out - two 75+ seniors who just want to feel the vibes to watch the game in a pub. We were lied to when the waitress promised twice the system will be fixed, we were bullied when the owner threatened us, we were offended when the bully called my parents names. This is no way to treat customers. I wanted him to follow through with his threats to call the police, he tried but apparently the police won't take his complaints so he left his own restaurant with tail between his legs. This bully owner is giving his own restaurant a bad name
I've purchased some pastries from the bakery and it was gross. The pastries went bad and I brought them back to the store. The owner instead of apology and refund or at least offer something else, he asked me to take my business somewhere else and do not get back to the store. He was supper rude he has bad temper and he was ready to get violent. I am not sure with this customer service how long more he can survive. I've tried to support this business but now I regret it. I've should of called the cups when he yield at me. Please don't waste your time and money in that store!!!!
Do not trust the owner. He is very dishonest and will try to take advantage of you. I regret ever having given this establishment my business.
The best thing offered are the cream puffs, if on the pricier side, but not enticing enough to overcome the complete lack of respect shown. Ambiance is typical sports bar/restaurant style.
You would be wise not to go.
I went to Urban Gate with my family and found the menu pricey and ordered off the specials which was more in tune what their prices should be at Urban Gate. Good atmosphere but the bakery is overpriced and other Persian places are cheaper with the same quality of desserts, etc. I would not go there in a long time and it fell short to get my recommendation. You can watch tv in the men's washroom, the jury is out on that theme....too bad Kandoo went out of business.
