So we ate at Lotus Blossom tonight. Soup took too long to arrive. Drinks took too long and child's milk was forgotton on first pass. Mu shi dish arrived without hosein sauce, which took an inordinately long time to arrive, by which time the dish was cold. Sent it back for warming. Had to wait for chopsticks. Food dishes had no covers, so rest of food quickly got cold. Check took too long. Change took too long.
They charge for rice. THEY CHARGE FOR TEA.
True, it was a Friday night, and we calculated that they ship 80 to 100 takeout orders per peak hour, based on a ten-minute count sample. But the service was inexcusable, as is the charge for tea.
It's a shame, because this joint dominates the local restaurant scene in town by sheer size and volume.
