If there is a tour bus parked outside the restaurant parking lot, it's a major telltale sign that -- 1) the wait is going to be long, 2) the kitchen is going to miss your order, and 3) the cashier is going to make mistake.
We made our maiden trip there and were told the wait is 15 minutes. "Okay, this is bearable. May be the tourists were about done", I thought to myself.
We were seated after about 20 minutes. After about 10 minutes, we hailed down a busy waitress who took our order. The wait went on for about 10 more minutes and the soup came. Even though it was starchy, I slurped it down like a hungry wolf. After a while, the first entree arrived. After licking the plate clean, our eyes wonder around looking for our second entree--fish and chicken porridge.
After managing to make eye contact with the waitress, she apologetically explained to us that the group of tourists is slowing the kitchen down. "Understandable, but could you please check on our order?" I asked meekly.
Another 10 minutes went by, the waitress immediately went to check on our order when she noticed the grimace on my face started showing. Another seemed like forever moment passed, we decided to walk up to the cashier and pay.
The hot tea costs us an extra dollar. But we didn't notice; signed the check, provide a small tip and quickly drove to a nearby bakery for the second serving.
I would go back for their porridge. But if there is a tour bus parked outside, I will opt for another place to save the aggravation and starvation.
