One of the worst restaurants in LA
I can only imagine that the people giving this restaurant even passible reviews do not eat out much. A friend and I went for the Thanksgiving buffet last night and it was just awful. The food had obviously been sitting for quite some time without being refreshed - the salads were soggy, the ""hot"" dishes were ice cold, blackened tilapia was sitting in a pool of oil, dishes like enchiladas and taquitos were completely dried out. I finally stopped even trying to find edible items to eat and complained to the manager. He brought out the chef who asked me what dishes I had problems with. I said virtually all of them and went down the row telling him what the problem was dish by dish. This apparently made no impression on him as he simply went back in the kitchen. As I was not nearly hungry enough to consider eating this garbage, I handed my half-filled plate to the manager and told him there was no way I would be eating here. He seemed entirely unconcerned and walked away. My friend, however, was very hungry as he had not eaten all day. So he opted to stay and eat, while I had a drink to keep him company. (Only one drink though - as it was impossible to get the waiters attention to order a second drink. Not that the restaurant was at all busy - I guess he was in the bar watching the game or something!) Afterward, my friend said the food was every bit as bad as it looked and he regretted not having left. The kicker was the bill was $25 for that slop, without the drinks! I swear I have seen more appetizing food in hospital cafeterias. In my opinion, $5 would be too much to charge for that buffet! On the way out, my friend complained to the manager and told him that, while he was paying the tab, he was extremely disappointed and recounted everything that was wrong with our dining experience. The managers response? Quote - ""You didn't have to eat here."" Nice way to respond to a problem, right? So bottom line - very bad food, very bad service, very bad management. Don't waste your time eating here - there are many, many, many better restaurants around.
