I visited the restaurant with my spouse and parents on a sunday evening. With the rave reviews on HGW, we had expectations for both the food and service.
We tried calling before going down, but our calls went unanswered from 5.30pm to 6pm.
It turned out to be a very disappointing visit, especially for my parents who rarely eat out and were looking forward eating at this restaurant, which I told them was highly recommended by many people.
We arrived at 6.30pm, and asked for a table for 4. The owner looked around the restaurant, and told me to come back later without any explanation. I could see an empty table right in front of me.
At this time, a couple entered the restaurant asked for a table for 2. He snapped back rudely, telling them that they could leave if they didn't want to wait.
Many were offended and left the restaurant after being told off for no reason.
We felt like leaving as well, but we did not know if there were any other vegetarian restaurants around the area.
We managed to get a seat when the lady sitting at the table of 8 offered her place to us.
No one took our order after we sat down. I decided to walk up to the owner to place an order, only to be told angrily that there were 3 orders before mine, and that I will have to wait. He didn't confirm if he is accepting my order, so I was confused and unsure if we were going to get food.
Eventually, the food arrived but 1 dish that we ordered was not served. It was only upon asking that we were told it was sold out, and we were not informed at all.
The restaurant's only main dish, Claypot Brown Rice, tasted ok, but we felt it was a tad too oily. The pumpkin soup was salty. Overall it was a huge disappointment.
