This is my 2nd review on urban spoon, if you saw what I wrote about Sandbar... well, Sandbar is actually on top of their game compared to this place.
I've been wanting to come here for a few months now. I am fortunate to dine out everyday, and enjoy trying to new places. But this place is not that great. With the pork jowl and pork belly being sold out, there menu is kind of limited. We had the eggplant, wontons (soup tastes like water, wontons are so bland, its better going to even Hon's for it), beef tartare, flatbread and taiwanese sausages. There's nothing "memorable" about the food here. The only good thing I would say is the taiwanese sausages aren't greasy or oily. The service here is horrible. We were seated and ordered, after that, no one said one word to us. We were given our dishes, not one word to us, (Here are your eggplants... here are your sausages... what is with just giving us food?). At the end, we asked the for bill and this guy seemed so annoyed like we owed him something? This was on a Wednesday night around 10pm and they were very slow! I can always accept this behaviour if it's busy and employees are annoyed or literally busy, but on a slow and dead night, it's always unacceptable. So after getting the bill, again, not one word to us. The only things we heard that evening was "do you want anything to drink?" and "do you need change?" My boyfriend and I decided to give a 20% tip, just to see if maybe employees would be nicer. So we asked for 1$ back, he confirmed we wanted 1$ back in a really rude way, when he gave us 1$ back, he threw it on the table and not one word. No goodnight, no bye, are you serious? What does this place teach me? Next time I'll say, "Sorry, yes, I decided I do want my change back." Even with a 20% tip you cannot get service from anyone here.
I'm not here to complain about the food, I won't even bother. But there is something clearly wrong with their service. I guess it's a place to drink, but not eat or get service.
