I group(6 females & 2 guys) of us have recently started patronizing this place, and we loved it because of the late hours and reasonable pricing. The services are decent, so we have visited them several times over the last month. We have even gone 2/3 times in one week. HOWEVER! last evening 10/12/14 - one of the ladies for the very first time didn't tip the gentlemen after her foot massage, and he became very upset, told the "nice" receptionist lady, and she began to scream..you didn't tip him...you need to leave some money..you need to give him money!!
We explained, that we paid for ALL services upon entry and tipping is an option, and that she'll take care of him next..again we come in twice a week. They locked the doors...and several other men came from other rooms and surrounded us, and wouldn't let us leave until we gave them money( a tip). I was so scared that I just handed them a $20.00 bill to release us. I really think the LAW calls that robbery! I was able to overlook the obvious illegal Brothel element of this place, but when the Asian Mafia starts to strong arm robbing you..it's just too much... I will never return.
