poor service from cashiers, once they take the order, they'll ask you to " MOVE PLEASE" in a roude way, not helpful staff at the cashier's, price is increasing surpricely twice which is not worth for poor quality meal. need big change. stop increasing the price

The Commons is a great place to go and enjoy a meal, in a casual environment. It's like the neighborhood hang out and the atmosphere is very hip, and relaxed. I strongly recommend the Mongolian fried rice, as well as the chicken kottu. They are both delicious!

Not a family Restaurent . All items including hamburgers are over priced here .no adequate staff in this Restaurent. Taking too long to prepare food. Only youngsters and teens were seen here chatting wasting time others have wait until. theses guys/gals leave the place . Overall Staff is not helpful & courteous .No value for money although they include service charge. don't except service all.

few of us met at commons to organize an event and this was definitely not the place as the music was blaring.. we had to talk above the music. event when requested to reduce, they didn't take notice. they took quite a long time to serve the food to our table..

Nice place but the food took almost an hour to serve and that also because we reminded them every few minutes.
Used to be such a nice hangout...didn't try the drinks - hope those are still as good as they used to be...
