discrimination at the Orient in Bethpage?

My husband and I enjoyed the food at the Orient, but something strange is going on with the service. We noticed several times that Asian people were immediately given complementary plates of pickled cabbage (before they even sat down to order). At times we also noticed that they were also given a dessert, (also complementary) Finally, I got up the nerve and asked for the pickled cabbage and dessert during one meal, which they did bring out. Has anyone encountered a similar situation there? By the way, we used to be regulars there and the owner,Tommy, even knew us. We have been going back to Fortune Wheel, where we were treated equally, and the food is just as good- if not better.
