disappointed by Blue Ginger

I went on an annual trip to Blue Ginger today, with a couple of loved ones, and found the experience leaving something to be desired.

The restaurant was not busy when we arrived but by the time we left, about an hour later, about half of the tables were filled. Still, service was erratic at best, downright lacking at worst. Condiments that were requested took ages to arrive. Water glasses went unfilled. The server was unwilling to ask the kitchen to make anything unusual (specifically Ming's Bings, which we've had previously at lunch when the server asked).

The menu looked downright different from the options listed online (the server said the online menu was their winter offering. Hint to Ming: people look at your online menu for a reason. Keep it current, please).

The food itself was good, which means the kitchen is doing their job. Shame that the wait staff can't keep up.

We tipped well (we always do), but I can't see us making this trip again next year.
