Respond to Review of Thea Vegetarian Tea Garden
Review: My first day in Adelaide after 2 hours flight from Sydney and I went straight away to Thea for lunch. I tried their Hainanese Chicken Rice and was automatically sold! Really crunchy pieaces of bread crumbed soy mock chicken on bed of warm rice and salad. Hummmm!!! The price surprised me too, only $10.50. The portion was just perfect, not too much or too little. It leaves me just anough room for dessert. Great interior and lighting. Fantastic 2 split levels of dining room, especially the underground one, was great and big enough for functions. The only vegetarian restaurants big enough and stylish enough for conducting functions in Australia. Clean and tidy restrooms too. However I feel that the staff are not that friendly. They were there just to do their jobs. Most I would suspect were not vegetarians/vegans themselves, thus the attitude was a bit "I don't care". The service was quick but lack of personal touch, maybe because the place is too big and the staff are used to heavy traffic of lunch time diners. I have also tried their BBQ pork buns and the BBQ pork rice but were not too fuss about them. Overall, a great place to for vegetarians and vegans! But hopefully they will extend their opening hours to dinner and weekend in the near future!
