Please avoid this place!!

I walked in at noon today for lunch. Asked for a table for two. After some Chinese conversation, they tried seating us at this mini two top. The restaurant was 3/4 empty when we arrived, no exaggeration. When I asked for a large table, they said the whole restaurant was reserved! When I asked to speak to the manager, she pointed to the person at the front door. They spoketo each other in Chinese, and when I explaned my situation, (and trust me, I was totally humble and polite as I spoke), she told me that if I didn't like the table I didn't have to eat there. I was taking an employee out for Christmas lunch, so needless to say it was quite embarassing. I told her I was going to leave and shemumbled something to me in Chinese, but really didn't care- she let me leave. By the way, there were about five four top tables, each with two people at them.

To me, in a city with a million great Chinese restaurants, this is ONE TO AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
