Food was very good. Tea leaf salad had great flavor. Also liked the lemongrass chicken and walnut shrimp.
Service speed is always interesting to assess. Too slow is bad. You want efficient and attentive service. However, it can cross a line when it is clear that efficiency and speed is not about giving you a good experience, it is about turning the table. Felt this from the minute we sat down. This was a Saturday evening. I could tell by the drive of the waiter to take the order and get it to the kitchen that we were going to have to fight to be there for longer than 30 mins. I told him 'we are not in a rush'. A minute later came our salad. No problem they are pre-prepared in the back for serving but zero thought that we may be out for an evening meal, not to race off to somewhere else. About five minutes later came our entrees. We had literally been in the restaurant for about 15 minutes and were served the full meal. Actually there is some irony because despite the fact we ordered rice, somehow they forgot to bring that. Waited several minutes, probably 10, before that showed up. It was just paced so poorly that I cannot imagine going back.
Then the bill comes. They have added an "ACA Surcharge" of $3.50. I asked the waiter what it was and he said it was to cover the additional cost of Obabmacare (Affordable Care Act). wtf? Have no idea what political message this is intended to send but I am totally annoyed it is being sent to me through the bill (or at all for that matter). Add a $1 to each entree if you must but to call it out and emphasize they are asking me to pay it is pathetic.
Great food but I will never go back and if anyone asks me, they will hear about this experience.
