One issue/peeve I have with Asian restaurants in particular is when you order an appetizer, entree, etc or want to have certain items "coursed out" everything tends to arrive quickly and at the same time.
Whether Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, etc everytime I go somewhere and order dishes and asked for them in a particular order or have asked for them to be in particular courses everything tends to arrive at the same time and usually within 5 minutes of ordering.
Has everyone else had this same experience. One of the few exceptions is Soi 4 in Oakland. They tend to be a little better at not dropping off all of your dishes at the same time.
Are there any other Asian restaurants (not $$$$ upscale) where all of your food doesn't arrive within minutes of ordering and there is some feeling of dining?
