More than 15 years ago, we ate at Wild Ginger at the satay bar. Sure the price of a satay stick is a tenth of the cost in Malaysia, but since we're at a fancy restaurant, and in the US, we'll pay the price. And now we're back in Seattle with a nice discount with our ticket to the Seattle Symphony. It's a good marketing tool to bring in customers!
First impression of the restaurant - "Wow. It's got a lot of seating. The hostess, wine bloke and waiter are attentive. But wait, the chair sags." And yes, I switched my chairs 3 times before I found one I didn't fall into - the fabric sagged into the frame - it seemed like there was no platform seat. And no, I'm not large nor heavy.
Food wise - the peasant chicken satay was one of the best and authentic tasting I've had in a long time. The otak-otak was nice too. The rendang (mispronounced by the waiter) and the princess prawns were excellent. It would have been easy to overcook the prawns, but they were just right.
I definitely felt that the staff were working hard to be attentive and were successful at that for us.
