Respond to Review of Golden Temple

Review: This place really put a damper on my mood. All the seats were taken downstairs, so we went and found a table upstairs. The floors upstairs are covered with rugs and pillows, and the tables are low so that you can sit on the floor. I found the area dirty and unappealing. The rugs were dirty, torn up magazines were lying about, as was a kit for rolling joints. The waiting staff came over immediately and were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food on the menu. I guess they should be since the menu doesn't seem to have changed for several years. The food itself arrived within a reasonable amount of time. But the portions were so minuscule it was aggravating. A friend arrived late so she decided to only order starters. Her three starters, together costing less than a main course, had the double amount of food than any of the main courses we had ordered. Aaargh! When we ate, all we could think of was how much nicer it would have been to have eaten at home instead. After leaving the restaurant, those of us who had eaten only a main course were still hungry so we went and bought a portion of fries. The restaurant looked like it was doing really good business, so why does the menu never change and why do the portions continue to be so small and overpriced? We felt so cheated and so annoyed by this restaurant that we all left feeling pretty annoyed and we all agreed that we will never, ever go there again. Ever.
