I am sorry to say I left this eatery feeling a little peeved.
Sure, their signature prawn noodles were tasty enough with that rich broth and three fresh prawns of a decent size (at $12++ for a modest portion, it had better be). Service was also attentive and prompt with my request for extra chilli swiftly fulfilled by two staff.
However, when I asked for a serviette thinking it had been overlooked, I was told they don’t provide any. As the staff went on to politely elaborate that they have wet napkins for sale at 30 cents a packet, I could only look at her with my greasy mouth hanging open.
Yup, at this casual restaurant that charges 10% service charge and 7% GST, they do not have any sort of basic cleaning items for customers. No tissue, no serviettes or napkins whatsoever. Zilch. Nada.
Am I wrong to be perturbed by this?
