My wife and I went for dinner here on Friday, October 13, 2012 and we should have left when we were initially seated. First of all the place is filthy. We were seated next to the Sushi Bar along the wall and the layer of soot, dirt and dust was actually visible! The carpets were worn and dirty, lights were out, the table felt sticky and the place just had the feeling of being unkempt. The food that followed pretty much matched the cleanliness of the restaurant. My wife asked if she could get a sauce for her Tofu dish and the young waitress replied no...what? Other dishes came with sauces so how difficult would it have been to serve the Tofu with a sauce from another dish? So she ordered Tofu that came with "sauce" which turned out to be nothing more than a little dish of very bland soy sauce. We tried it doctor it up but it was still pretty boring. I ordered vegetables over rice in a hot stone bowl.......it was mostly rice and lettuce. The sauce was okay. The service was poor. My wife asked for a knife and never got one. The waitress also never checked on us to see how our meal was, maybe she knew already? Oh well, Shin La is just not our cup of tea!
