This is at the westgate outlet.

Sat down for barely 2 mins and a waitress came over and asked me for the order sheet (they have the diy thing). I said we're not done yet, and still she stuck out her hand and waited next to the table. Why is there a need to rush us?? Ok so maybe their plan is to rush people to order, eat, and leave so they can take in more customers. But 2 mins?? And need you stick your hand out, ready to snatch the paper at any moment? So intrusive. 

Food came, asked for mayonnaise for the fried food and the reply (in mandarin) was "No no no we dont have. We dont have anything. Just use the sauce on the table." Indeed you dont. She could have said timhowan is adopting a different style, doesn't carry the usual sauces, etc, but her choice of answer was just plain blunt. I tried to ask other waitresses to see what the response was and everyone was just as rude.

Halfway throuh the meal, with food clearly still on the table, they were already asking if they could clear the dishes. Worse than a fast food resturant. At least at a fast food restaurant they let you eat in peace.

And to top it all, the food really didnt make up for the lack in service at all. Porridge- so salty. Its not century and salted egg porridge. It tasted like just pure salted egg. Shrimp dumpling - dry. 

The entire experience was extremely distasteful. We ate in a hurry, and left with the intention to never go back.

The line was long but we got our table for two within 5 minutes. They know how to turn their tables over very quickly and the food also came out fast and fresh. We ordered just a few items to just get a flavor and the items were all delicious. Our favorite was the BBQ pork bun. It was very different than the normal bao you get. These tasted like angel food cake...sweet and light. A definite must try item. Most items were $4-$5 so very reasonable. Due be aware that water is charged at $0.50 for a small glass. Overall a good meal.

Food is always consistently good, service is very fast with the wait staff being very attentive even when they're often having to multi-task, with several tables calling for their attention, and a long snaking queue outside the restaurant. Though not as good as the one in Hong Kong, that would be an unfair comparison. These folks take what they have and really make a good effort in delivering good, value-for-money, dim sum at dependable quality levels.
