Mint, The1414 Douglas St., Victoria
Why so slow?
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 2:08pm [Dine in]

The ambience is quite nice (if you like dark) and I've eaten some delicious meals there. Their cocktails are quite good (I find them a little lighthanded on the alcohol but that might not be a bad thing.)

I really recommend you do not go to The Mint if you have any other plans that evening. The service is terribly slow, they forgot several drinks and we were there over an hour and a half before they asked us for our food orders. This was a leisurely dinner with friends so we didn't mind to much but we were all pretty starving by the time our food arrived and we left unimpressed all around by the service.

Maybe I've been unlucky, but other reviews here seem to indicate that the slowness of service is something they really need to work on. They were certainly not understaffed.

Noodle Box, The818 Douglas St., Victoria
Inconsistent!
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 1:57pm [Dine in]

This place is extremely inconsistent. I have had extremely friendly cashiers, and extremely rude and disinterested cashiers. I order the same spiciness (medium) every time and it is a roulette. Sometimes I can't taste spice AT ALL, rarely is it spot on and occasionally it burns my mouth off! It seems each cook has their own idea of what spicy is, so why have a range of spiciness at all?

It is a busy, funky atmosphere and they are excellent at accomodating food allergies. I usually end up going when out with friends who have a variety of dietary needs.

With better consistency and friendlier front end staff it could be so much better.

Disappointed
Submitted Wednesday, July 8, 2009 - 1:31pm [Dine in]

I had such rude service in this establishment the other day. The cashier rang up the wrong drink and when I told the barista (who is also the OWNER) that my drink was made incorrectly he was extremely rude and suspicious, making a big deal about charging me the difference. It is a shame that the quality goes more into their latte art than their service or espresso. I will not be back.
