Interesting flare on as seen from an American from NY. Good service, friendly environment, and a very enjoyable experience. Also very busy for a mid-week visit

On first entering restaurant thought this would be a nice place to have dinner while waiting on a connecting train at Haymarket.

Enquired about a table waiter said there was no table!!

On looking around restaurant there were clearly 5 empty tables I got the Impression the no table was because I was on my own clearly only want to have parties of more than one eating in the restaurant,

Really bad rude service don't think of visiting if on you own. NO table!!!!

I really enjoyed my experience at Xiangbala. The food was fresh, the broth was very delicious and the staff were helpful without being overbearing.

Booked a table for 8pm. Showed wasnt a table available yet. No problem. Waited 5 minutes then realized its cash only so I told the staff I go get cash. Came back and I find they have seated other people. Then he pretends if I didnt notice and plays dumb and asked if I wanted to have a seat which was next to the toilets.

I asked him why they got a table before us and he still plays dumb.
