Oh no! Is Dol Ho now a No Go?

LaserGecko | Jul 23, 201201:26 PM     7

Hi,

A friend just returned from a trip to San Fran. He asked about "that great dim sum place you're always raving about" based on our trip there years ago, so I gave him all the info about don't be in a hurry, be patient, you're going for the food, not atmosphere, and, oh yeah, don't be in a hurry.

Other friends I've sent there have always reported fantastic "best I've ever had" experiences, but it's been over a year since the last report.

This time was completely different. He managed to receive two dishes. One was good, the other was cold, then "they stopped serving the white guy". He's a nice guy, not demanding, and knew that it would take forever to eat there, so he was well prepared, but it was obvious they were done with him.

Is this a trend or a fluke? I know him and can say with certainty that's he's very easy going and wasn't a problem for them. I feel horrible that I built it up to be Dim Sum Nirvana (mixed religion reference) and it was more like purgatory for him,

Thanks,
Jason
