First of all, although this was Aberdeen Centre, I was very pleased that I wasn't addressed in Chinese ~ after all, this is Canada right? So cut the BS on servers not being able to speak Chinese, as long as they speak English, then it's fine. I'm Asian but not Chinese and am sick and tired of being given dirty looks for not understanding Chinese.
Secondly, The service was attentive and considerate. Unlike most Asian establishments, plates weren't slammed onto the table, silverware was checked and replaced if dirty, and the servers did not place their fingers/hands on the edges of the plates or on the rims of the drinking glasses.
The food wasn't fantastic. I was actually happy that my meal didn't arrive in 10 minutes because when it does, it tells me that it was most likely pre-cooked or most of the ingredients were sitting out half prepared at room temperature. I have no problem waiting for food. The quality of food wasn't great for the price I paid but I've only been there once. I'm willing to give it 2-3 more visits before I make a final decision ~ also because I have yet to try their desserts and drinks.
It would be wrong of me to comment on their coffee because I'm not a coffee drinker and I would probably be making an ass out of myself for pretending to know what was good/bad. I had their basic coffee and while I wasn't blown away, I didn't think it was bad.
Perhaps it's inappropriate for me to review a place based on one visit but I thought I'd defend this establishment because I thought it seemed to receiving some unfair reviews. Yes the food might need some work but service and attention was better than anything I've seen in any other Asian establishment.
