Tried this new, somewhat vegetarian place in Park Slope tonight. Big mistake.

We waited an hour for our food. First, they brought us someone else's food, then they brought something else and tried to tell me it was the scallop dish I ordered, when it was clearly shrimp (strange looking tempura shrimp covered with ... cheese?).

I was in a really bad mood after waiting so long. Then they brought our food and my mood got even worse! The "stir-fried malaysian noodles" were sitting in a few cups of the saltiest sauce ever. And my scallops, which were supposed to come with "mushrooms and a variety of vegetables" had only mushrooms and cauliflower. Cauliflower and scallops just aren't meant to go together as far as I'm concerned. And I got a few bites of something very flour-y - must have been to thicken the sauce. Yuck.

Needless to say - not recommended.
