Jin for Dim Sum - NEVER AGAIN!

cdoobiest | Jun 2, 2008 05:59 PM

My parents came to visit so I decided to take them out for dim sum. Fyi, we are Chinese.
We went Memorial Day and it was completely insane. I heard 1.99 all items including items in cart and you can go up and get noodles, s&p shrimp, calamari, congee, and sushi.

Well, price raised to 2.95 per dish and they were very understaffed. I have never seen so much chaos in my life. The carts came out one every 10 min and there was only 1 or 2 carts around the restaurant. We came at noon so peak time. I think everyone was getting upset so people started waiting outside the kitchen waiting for the carts. When the carts came out, it was a mad dash to get the items and everything was gone within 5 min.

At the noodle, seafood, taro cake line, the 2 ladies working the grill were making items to order and each order took like 5-10 min, so there was a line 30 people deep and it didn't move at all. After 2 hours and maybe 10 dishes for 7 people, we gave up and walked out. Quite sad and so disappointing. I can't believe people didn't riot. There were so many people that were pissed off waiting in line. I want to like this place but can't. I can't see them lasting long if they keep this up.

Time for the next crazy owner to take over.
