I visited the restaurant last Saturday (28 July) afternoon at about 1.50 pm and requested for a table for 2. A Chinese waitress came to receive me and informed me that the last order was 2.15pm. Seeing that there was still sufficient time to order and finish my food, I did not let the time constraint deter me from devouring my favorite bowl of noodles.
As I was about to sit down, the waitress gestured me to sit outside (maybe because they would be closing soon). After insisting to sit indoors due to the heatwave outside, they relented and proceed to take my order.
Come 2.15pm, they already shut off half of the lighting in the restaurant. As me and my companion are the only ones left in the restaurant, we hastened our bites so as to not inconvenience the service staff. However, at 2.30pm, the same Chinese waitress came over to our table and rudely told us in mandarin, 'Can you eat faster?'! Imagine my horror! I was just trying to have a good lunch but I have never felt so unwelcome and offended. I am a frequent visitor of this restaurant but this bad taste in my mouth will forever ruin whatever appetite I have for your food!
