They prepare the food with no passion at all. The Thai Squid salat sounded so interesting, but what we got was loveless slices onion with squid. Nothing Thai about it. Chicken wings soaking with oil, BBQ sauce so smokey: tasting like licking an ashtray. On top they automatically charge a 10 % “service“ charge. Waiting for beeing attended to, nothing I would call service. I should have eaten some tasty food on the night market instead of wasting time and money at this ridiculous place.

We came here to celebrate a birthday dinner. We got straight in on a Sunday night without waiting or a reservation. The service was attentive and food was average. Reasonable portion sizes and ok quality but nothing too special. The best thing was we got a free order of chicken wings because it was a birthday. All we had to do was show ID.

Smoket Joe's Tainan: Wanted to check in for a burger and beer. Agreed to a 400 ccm Hoegaaden draft beer. A 250 ccm Glass is coming, and they want to charge me the price for 400 ccm. And now comes the joke: a waiter with bad breath explains me that the difference between the 250 ccm and the 400 ccm are made up by the 1 cm difference between the 250 ccm mark and the top of the glass.
Please, could somebody teach the guys there some math and how to brush their teeth? Thanks!

What makes you choose a restaurant? In my opinion food of course, but I think
Good customer service helps restaurants stand Out .
They let people to feel welcome, and they take the time to ensure their customers are in good hands from the moment they step inside.
On top that, they have huge menu -The food was amazing,, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. meals reasonably price .Good place to relax and meet friends. Service was very good and servers were kind, friendly and helpful . Love it all and want to come back to visit soon. Good restaurants deserve to be rewarded with our custom.
