A FIRST! - TURNED AWAY & DECLINED service and business at an empty restaurant! - Hai Tang Cafe & Take Out, 38 Buttonfield Road, Markham

Feeling too lazy to cook, I made a relatively short drive to the aforementioned Hong Kong style cafe/restaurant in the hope of taking-out a simple meal-in-one, ' Fry beef with Tomato on rice '. Arriving at 5.15 pm, I went to the counter and tried placing my order. The female server looking after me, ' bluntly ' declined my request, citing they only serve these type of dishes up to 5.00 pm! Looking around and noticing the front of house was EMPTY, I politely requested whether the kitchen can make a rare exception? After all, I did make a special trip from Richmond Hill. Nope! The answer was still NO!! Looks like they just don't want my business!:(
Well, thank goodness for the internet! Here I am using social media to vent my frustration and let the world know!!! :(

BTW, the restaurant ' Ho Garden ', 9255 Woodbine, Markham ( next to T&T ) where I ended up getting my dinner from, was both friendly, helpful and I was rewarded with good food at a decent price!
