It was a lesson well learnt. That is, never to go to Tung Lok less you are prepared for avid sales people posing as service staff and random bugs trooping around your table.
It was very nearly a harrowing experience if not for the array of excellent desserts.
So there, that is the one good thing i have to say about Tung Lok.
Now for the harsh reality.
The waitress who took our order was overwhelming, loud, rude, abrasive and did nothing but SELL her promotional dishes. VERY ANNOYING. everything we wanted she countered loudly with a promotional order of some kind. This was done in a loud and abrasive manner cutting us off mid speech. Not impressed.
The food was so damn mediocre it was not even funny. Even worse was the so called 'fantastic' rib that she recommended - it was SO fatty there was scarcely anything to eat after one cut out all the fatty bits (to save from immediate heart failure or certain death from cholestrol).
And then there was the complete ignorance of fine dining service on their part. Food was rushed out with no proper chain of order or even logic. Think vegetables randomly arriving mid starter!? We had to ask them to slow down and even turned away our mains just so we could finish our starters and our soups. To make things worst, the imbecile of a woman left all our mains sitting out in plain sight. What a nightmare. She eventually took it in only for it to be served a while later (possibly spat on and microwaved) sigh.
To make things worse, I found a bug crawling around the table - the waitress picked it off laughing and joked that it was there as a friend. I almost gagged.
I have no issues with paying for a premium price for premium food, but not when its mediocre, of poor quality, and even worse service.
I spent $80 per person.
Must tries: the desserts ONLY
