Respond to Review of Madras Bistro
Review: This is a typical South Indian restaurant that is characterized by relatively good, authentic food true to the South Indian cuisine, but inefficient service. It is a small restaurant that apparently shares its management and kitchen with an adjoining North Indian restaurant (that is not vegetarian). While the menu here is all vegetarian, it is not clear whether the cooking in the kitchen is segregated or not. In any case, there wa just one person in the restaurant who sat us, took our order, brought the dishes, cleared the tables, and was responsible for accepting payments. However, after a 10 minute wait for the check, I went up to the counter and insisted on making the payment. This was all after it took for ever for our orders to emerge from the kitchen. People were waiting for well over 20 minutes for their orders, highly unusual in a fast moving south Indian restaurant. This is enough to leave a bad taste evn though the food ws quite good.
