No wonder Kinara is empty!

After ordering delicious take-out from this place for the past several months, we decided to take the plunge last night and eat in the restaurant itself. There were two other tables occupied when we arrived and after being seated and given menus, the waiter never once appeared at our table. No water, no order-taking, nothing, despite the fact that my husband caught his eye on numerous occasions and gestured that we were ready to order. Meantime, the waiter spent all of his time on the phone taking orders for delivery. At this point, after waiting patiently for nearly 15 minutes, my husband was going to use his cell phone to call in our order, giving the address of the restaurant, third table on the right! After a good laugh, we decided to go elsewhere, and when we stopped by another table, they said that they had been waiting for a really, really long time as well. Bottom line: good for take-out but don't go there unless you call ahead first to have "take-out" delivered to your table. Voila! The ONLY way to eat at Kinara!!! Otherwise, you go hungry or grey waiting for service.....
