This restaurant was okay. The staff did not speak much English at all and seemed annoyed by our very presences. We definitely had language barrier problems. We ordered skewered mock meat, a spicy chicken dish, mushroom noodle soup, and a mixed mock meat plate to go. The skewered mock meat was delicious, though strangely it was presented in a pool of salt. The salt was really excessive, wasteful, and unnecessary. The spicy chicken dish was excellent. We had issues with the soup, as we ordered one bowl and it took a very long time to come out. When it didn't come out within 30 minutes of the other dishes, we figured they may have forgotten, so we ordered another. The waiter tried to explain to us in Mandarin, apparently, that our order was pending. However, I believe we made clear that we only wanted one order. He put two in anyway. When the second one came out 30 minutes after the first (we were done eating by then), we asked that he take it back. He seemed to understand, but then he took it back and charged us for it anyway. We disputed the charge. It wasn't that expensive, but we didn't want to pay for the soup especially after he had taken it back; it would have been a different story if he had wrapped it up for us to take away. Also, the mock meat plate was our most expensive order and it was horribly disappointing. By the end of the night, our waiter seemed absolutely sick of us. Overall, a meh experience.
