“Ok food, rude waitress”

Cuisines: Asian
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 2, 2014

I really waited for visit to this place because it seemed so good on hotels homepage.

Pluses:
Food was good, nothing special but tasty. Picking my own choice of ingredients was fun (lots of meat yum!) Also the choice of spice is fair- hell is hell ;) And you can eat as many portions you like.
Cakes-dessert part was delicious.
Two cooks were very polite, made me smile and seemed warm minded. They briefly showed how fast the wok is done- it was interesting.

Minuses:
One waitress was rude- I have not been long time treated this way in a restaurant! Besides that was amazed that Meriton staff member cant handle basic service rules. Also no drinks were offered or suggested :(
Overall atmosphere was uncomfortable and confusing- to understand where buffet 1 ends and buffet 2 starts was impossible.
Choice of wok veggies and meats could have been fresher- like real mushrooms instead of canned ones.
Sushi was bad and brought down overall impression. It should not be advertised out at all on their homepage.
Loud crowd noises from lobby were disturbing.

I have been to many places and you can sense where you are welcome and awaited like best friend. Although cooks did their best to be nice on the staff side and food was fine for 15 euros, I would not go back there again.

Having read the ad about the 15e buffet at the Meriton hotel, we arrived with hopes of getting good food, and were rather hungry. Sharp at the opening time we were there, only 2 other tables taken. Well, they have the choise of two buffets, one with salads, soup and a small choise of entrees, and the one where you are supposed to have a choise of sushi, and different goods to be prepared to you in an open kitchen. Beware of these! We chosed the grilled one, and what did we get? (No wonder they want you to pay before you get the food). I got my stuff after 40 minutes. Within half an hour after opening, the so-called choice of sushi (turned out to be cooked rice rolls and a piece of salmon, that was all about it) to be finished as well as any bread from the buffet. My food looked like vomit (please see the picture).. My son´s meal never arrived since the waiter came and told us his meal had been eaten by another customer (?!). He had to pick a new selection from the very diminished "buffet" where about half the selection was finished, mostly the more costly ones. Anyway, and had I taken a watch before -most of the meats were the same "ready to cook"meats we can buy in our supermakets for 10e/kilogram.
When I complained that after waiting ab 45 minutes he gets less a choise and to eat afer a long wait (we could not even eat at the same time), the cook (with his big spoon heightened), and the waiter asked me what was the problem, They thought we could eat plenty of the lefover stuff anyway No possibility to even try to explain what service is about, they were not interested.

Overpriced and terrible food. Half of the menu they didnt serve. Cook collected food from the buffet table for your meal and went back to the kitchen.

The food is good - I had the best duck ever - and the a la carte portions are big. Still, like all the restaurants in this hotel, this place is very expensive.
