We were at Mala on a Thursday evening, around 6:30. No one else was seated on the patio, and I don't know how many people were inside. Shortly after sitting down, 3 menus were placed on our table, with just a quick hello. After about 5 minutes, a couple sat down on the patio and their order was taken immediately. The servers were having their meals / snacks at the same time. It was approaching 15 minutes when our food and drink orders were taken. I made sure both were taken at the same time because I didn't want to spend the entire evening there. It was another 25 minutes (40 in total) before our food started to arrive...one meal at a time. Mine took 50 minutes, but not before a complimentary bread plate was served. Just as we were finishing up our meals, another complimentary pasta dish was served, but we were stuffed by that time. I read earlier reviews that mentioned the free food, and wondered if it is for when they mess up orders, or was this plate something they prepared by accident and didn't know what to do with.
