“THREATENED and HIT by Thang Bom bully.”
Review of Thang Bom

Ranked #712 of 923 Restaurants in Hoi An
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The best advise I can offer is to NOT DINE HERE.

Unfortunately I cannot say that my experience at the Thang Bom Cafe was memorable due to the exceptional food, but as a result of the unexceptional, ill-treatment and indecent behaviour of the restaurant owner. He was aggressively boisterous, he threatened and intimidated myself and my two friends, he over dramatised an unnecessary situation and menacingly charged at myself, striking me on the head on numerous occasions... not what I would call going the extra mile for the customer.

Having ordered the food, agreed on a price with our server (his mother) and triple checking that the amount agreed was ok, we assumed that there was no problem. We paid the agreed amount and on leaving the male restaurant owner marched over demanding more. Before we could even discuss calmly and maturely his ignorant and power mad behaviour combusted into rage and fury. He threatened my friend, which was frightening. As we started to leave the restaurant he fired back and came for me slapping me over the head repetitively. My friend pushing him off along with our server (his mother) by this point we were all terrified. Upon actually leaving he came round to the front of the restaurant to strike again. Lucky for us a passer by saw the incident and came in to help.

I honestly and genuinely believe that this man's attitude and behaviour was not a one off.

As the only person to leave a review please take my word and do not take your chances on dinning at Thang Bom Cafe. I would hate for anyone else to experience what we had, or worse!!!
