This must be our 10th visit, but left totally disappointed. This place is definitely on down grade.
We reached at 12:30 pm on Sunday afternoon. The walkway to the gate was being washed and there was soap water all over, we stood there for 5 min but dint see any1 cleaning. So we walked through soap water, walking very carefully.
It was too hot as A/C had not yet started. We asked waiter to start.
We ordered Kung Pao Potato ( a regular dish, which we love) and Fried Wanton for starters.
A/C still not started, I started to feel suffocated. We asked waited repeatedly, and all we got was "chalu hai". Then after like 10 times being behind him, he said shift to the other table. That was little better than first.
After 20 min of wait our stater arrived. After feeling suffocated, I was in not in much of a state to eat. Kung Pao was good though. Wanton was drenched in oil. Oil was leaking from it.
I did not feel like eating more, so asked waiter if is it possible to cancel the main course. He said no as it is ready. We said OK.
After which, he took 25 min to get main course. We were like what is this. All he said was it is ready. After fighting finally it arrived.
By this time it got cool enough, and was all set to dig in finally on the main course. We ordered burnt chilli rice and for gravy we ordered spicy pot. I just hated burnt chilli rice. It had so much burnt onions in it, that it was too overpowering. Gravy was OK, but veggies in it felt like they have used peels of vegges rather than veggies. Many things in it were not chewable and had to spit it out.
Then after being disappointing with entire thing, we ordered Mission Impossible. My friend was desperate to eat, and was the main reason to come to 5 spice. Further to our disappointment, he said it is NOT AVAILABLE...Wow!! We have seen people eating in lunch time before, but waiter said it is available only for dinner. Being there for Sunday lunch, that too early, we never doubted that this would be the case.
Finally we decided to enough of it, and asked for bill. To get bill he took another 20 minutes.
And here we go..But the biggest disappointment was yet to arrive.
As we left and walking out, I lost balance and fell down. Twisted my left leg badly!! My friend inspected that how did I fell walking flat, she found that below the carpet tile was broken or shaking and that's how it happened. Thank God, it was left leg, so I could drive home being an Automatic Car. (Friend's do not know driving). After showing to the doctor next day, got x-rays done and said it has to be in soft plaster and will take 3 months to heel!!
I hope 5Spice management read this and at least spend some money on rearing their floor. If not, some else will suffer.
