We visited Bonita after hearing there downtown location was severely damaged due to the river overflowing and flooding. I support local business and have lived her 22 years. I had been there a couple times in the past and the service wasn’t very good but my friends liked it so I hadn’t come back for a while. So there was three of us. We order three dumpling orders. Teriyaki salmon, Ramen soup, fish balls, short ribs, spring rolls, crispy rolls, appetizer Plater, Two desserts, nonalcoholic drinks, it took almost 30 minutes to receive a Diet Coke. The courses came out about every 15 minutes. Main courses then appetizers then desserts then teriyaki chicken then appetizer platter extremely strange way of serving and extremely slow. A lady who appeared to be the owner came by the table she asked me the problems I explain them her response was we have a small kitchen. And questioned my time lines And basically wanted to argue with me. Very obvious she has absolutely no experience prior to opening this mom-and-pop restaurant didn’t know how to size a Kitchen doesn’t know how to manage staff. I just told her I understood I did not want to argue with her it was extremely clear it would’ve been a waste of time and that all the Staas mistakes were directly due to her input. They didn’t delivery one of the dishes I ordered. And the Appetizer platter didn’t have a cucumber salad and add a very odd kimchi but only had red sauce in chunks of pineapple. The food was average but there’s no other place in Vallarta that has this type of Asian cuisine primarily a spin from Korean cuisine. It’s really sad because it seem to have it be a delightful place and many of my friends like it and they just tell me no we don’t complain John because there’s no other options. The same thing happened to some sushi restaurants 15 years ago in Vallarta the owner got a big ego went out of control for five other places open up and they lost all their business
