Last weekend I had lunch at the bamboo Buddha, and had terrible service from the waitstaff.
We purchased our lunch at the counter then were left to wonder around the cafe to find seating, that didn't exist!
After finding a table with no help from the waitstaff, we were approached by the waitstaff to say that the table was already booked. After this we found another couple that were leaving a day bed, so we sat on the day bed waiting for our food to arrive. A waitstaff approached us and rudely said you left your Buddha table number back at the other table, it will be impossible for you to get your food without it!
With our lunch we ordered tea with soy milk only to be given soy milk! (I stressed when ordering we were vegan and needed soy milk)
When we left I returned to my car which was parked out the front of the bamboo Buddha and saw that Gosford council had put a $230 parking ticket on my car and a few cars out the front of the cafe. (The cafe only has 6 car spaces inside)
Horrible service, will never go there again! And do not recommend anyone going there!
