booked a table at 7 as it's my fd's bday... it's full house as there're only ~20 seats.
the food is good, undoubtedly. crispy lasagne with nice minced beef, nice sea bass;
the rissotto is relatively normal but it's also fine, while the lamb steak is chewy but a little bit lack of taste.
Really sincerely feel that the food is good, the chef is good.
But my main comment in this post will be about the waiters.
the restaurant claims that it's a wine cellar itself too, however, from the way the waiter is holding the wine bottle (actually holding its body), it doesn't look persuasive.
the same waiter (a local uncle) was giving me a brand new experience in dinning too, we were sharing dishes with one dish in the middle of our table, he's grabbing two other dishes here, and asked us to help in moving aside the one already there. I helped in moving so a little bit aside, such that the three dishes could line up in a row.
However, what I got in reply was, "don't just say it in your mouth, move the dishes" -- nice one man. Wonder if I got a 10% service charge for tht.
the onwer / lady in charge was generally friendly, but a bit disappointed when she offered to recommend some dishes for us. She was simply reading out the menu one by one, while the menu's in both English & Chinese, ie. self-explanatory.
A little brush-up in her socialling skill won't hurt too, i suppose, as she knew we're sharing the dishes, but she's saying smth like "hello u better go on with the rissotto now or it'll get cold". Well you dont have to serve all dishes at once i suppose.
