my friends and i came here for a dinner get together. when we got there, there was only one other table of people, but more diners started to come in steadily. there was only one waitress working (along with her son that couldn't have been more than 12 years old). we ordered our drinks and entrees at the same time, but our drinks arrived AFTER our food. our water and our food was served to us by the 12 year old. our drinks arrived about 5 minutes after our food. the food itself was okay. i ordered pad thai with chicken with a medium spice as the waitress said the peppers in season were really hot--i have eaten saltine crackers with more spice than the pad thai. i wanted to ask for some crushed red peppers to sprinkle on it to spice it up a bit but the waitress was nowhere to be found and did not check on us once during our meal, except once as she running to the next table she shouted over in passing "you doing alright?"--i was already almost finished with my meal so it was pointless to ask for peppers at this point. also the paid thai was fairly oily. my friend ordered drunken noodles and i tried a bite and they had a great kick to them. the 12 year old brought us our check before we were even asked if we'd like another drink or dessert or anything. we were charged $1 more than listed on the menu for our drinks. when i told the waitress this, she said it was because they were out of house rum and used bacardi--that is not my fault and i felt i shouldn't have to pay more because they were out of something. she took the dollar off each of our drinks but acted like she was doing us a favor. i don't know who the owners are of this place, but it is unacceptable to have one waitress on staff to handle orders, delivering of food and drinks, and play cashier. at one point, i even witnessed the 12 year old running credit cards through!! totally unacceptable to have a kid delivering food to tables and running credit cards! i won't be dining here again--the service was terrible and my food was bland, not to mention the use of unlawful child labor. i will stick to paid thai in mechanicsville.
