Should have known better, Very Disappointing
I'm not one who typically reads the negative reviews for restaurants and assumes they are correct. Things happen, some people have very unreasonable expectations, others are just having a bad day and are impossible to please. It is for that reason why I overlooked the two negative reviews for Mak Chins, the other 14 people couldn't all be wrong. However, I'm actually pretty disappointed with the evening. I had never tried Mak Chins, and invited 5 other friends to join me for dinner after work (about 8pm), I never imagined such a disappointing evening would ensue. Our waiter was no where to be found, and consequently a very nice girl took our groups appetizer order, saying the waiter would be by shortly to take our drink order. It wasn't until after the appetizers had been served were we able to get a member of the staff to pull him away from the larger table he was catering to and attend to our needs as well. A multi-tasker he was not. And at that, he proceeded to say he wanted to finish with the other table before he even greeted us. Not a stellar first meeting with him, and things only got worse. We watched him have a conversation on the phone for a bit, all the while continuing to sip our water. All said and done, the food was mediocre at best, the service of the waiter left much to be desired (the busboy, on the other hand, was on his game), and to top it all off, the waiter charged us for the wrong bottle of wine. But what is most frustrating about that is not that it was human error, for when we brought it to his attention, he tried to tell us he gave us the more expensive bottle and it was our error for not clarifying what we wanted, while the (less expensive, long empty) bottle was still sitting in the middle of the table. Only when we pointed this out did he in fact acknowledge that we were charged for the wrong bottle, but served what we ordered. Will I go back? Absolutely not. It wasn't horrible, but definately not worth the time/money.
