The restaurant is very well presented and we had high hopes, there were two other tables of people so we sat down and waited for the menus, these arrived about 5 minutes later. Ordered and then sat, and waited, and waited, and waited... my friends spaghetti carbonara arrived after about 45mins and she says it was delicious. I enjoyed sitting watching her eat whilst waiting for my Laos salad. When she had one mouthful left on her plate, my salad was placed in front of me - missing the steamed rice it should have come with. I started eating, hoping to catch the eye of either the owner or the waitress to explain that it wasn't there. They completely ignored me so I finished my meal. Went to pay the bill and explained that my meal was missing a vital ingredient to which the owner rudely responded that I should have asked for it and then walked off as I tried to ask who I should have asked.
I don't like writing bad reviews but I felt the attitude of the owner was pretty disgusting and I am surprised to see so many positive reviews, maybe he was just having an off day? There are much better places to eat than here so avoid if you can.
