Respond to Review of Eight Treasures Vegetarian
Review: The menu is what first got my attention. There is so much variety and for a reasonable price. However, whatever they bring you before you order, don't expect it to be complementary. They brought us tea, napkins and peanuts, and everything was charged. The $5 tea surprised us the most. However, the meals were tasty. My friends and I all shared our dishes, and all tasted great. My favorite was a fish dish my friend ordered...can't remember the name but it had a bbq taste. My friends favorite was the monkeyhead mushrooms. My other friend enjoyed the black pepper chicken. He actually ordered a different type of fish dish, but it never arrived but we were all fine with that because we ended up too full. They immediately brought us the receipt, before our desserts came, so we reminded them that were were charged for them, and they confirmed that the desserts were on the way. About 20 min later, my friend went to ask them the status, and turns out they forgot about it. We saw them take the desserts out of the fridge and walk to the kitchen (obviously, to put them in nice silverware). We were surprised about that too because how can they forget when we reminded them at the time we got the receipt and paid our bill, especially when it was just a matter of pulling it out of the fridge instead of actually having to go out of the way to make it? We didn't care for the mango dessert...tasted syrupy, like straight from a can. The honeydew sago on the other hand was delicious. Tasted like vanilla ice-cream, with a hint of melon, and some sago pearls among other ingrediants. The waitress also didn't understand English very well. Fortunately, my friend can speak a little. It's a nice, relaxing setting, and upstairs where you can look down at all the hustle and bustle. Well, even though we didn't care for the service very much, especially since there really wasn't an excuse because it wasn't very busy, the food was good, price is reasonable (most meal was about $10 for a small size, which was a pretty good size portion), and the setting is nice, so I'll still rate it a 4.
