Respond to Review of CLOSED: World Food Cafe
Review: I had a 12 hour layover in London, I was excited about finding a vegetarian restaurant near the British museum. I located World Food Cafe through Happy Cow and it was a bad experience. The server was unhelpful and unfriendly (later, much to my surprise, I learned she was the owner), I asked her for recommendations since it was my first time in this establishment, she was in no mood to suggest anything. I sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen, one of the prepares was constantly blowing her nose into a tissue then handling food with her unwashed hands, she definitely had a cold. I observed my server cut a pie, lick her fingers then cut more pie... and so on, she might as well been licking the entire dish. My food was brought to me and set down abeam the empty seat next to me, it didn't make sense but my server was oblivious to most things around her. The food did not taste good and I was never asked how I was doing, I actually was ignored the whole time... and I was the only customer in the restaurant! I signaled my server to pay by waving my credit card, she would not take it unless I stood directly in front of the cash register even though I was only sitting a few feet away. My bill was 9.90, she refused to take my credit card because the bill was less than 10. It was an all around bad experience and my excitement of being in London for the day quickly evaporated.
