Respond to Review of Happy Veggie Garden
Review: I found this restaurant while browsing Happy Cow when I was hungry one day, so I made it a mission to go here. The first few times I went, I felt the same as the rest of the reviewers on here. Great food (although not all vegan) and good service. They even poured my tea for me, and served my soup. I thought this place was a sure thing, so I decided to bring my boyfriend. I'm not really sure what happened, but all the times we have gone together the service has been absolutely terrible. We always get the same waitress (not the older one, and there are only two females). This woman is beyond rude. I was ordering my food, and she walked away before I was done! I had to say "Excuse me I'm still ordering." When the food did arrive, one of the dishes was not what I ordered. She proceeded to raise her voice and say "You ordered noodles, not soup!" I gave up that argument and took the noodles. I then asked for a rice bowl to eat my main entree with, and she refused to give me one because I had a bowl that the noodles were in. I explained I still wanted a bowl for the rest of my food, and she came back and slammed 4 bowls on the table. What am I going to do with 4 bowls? My boyfriend asked for a Sprite. She came and put the can on the table and walked away. No cup, no ice. I had to ask the busboy for it. The last time we went (and it will be the last) she didn't take our order for 15 minutes. I hate to say this, but I've noticed that Chinese people get preferential treatment here big time. My boyfriend is Asian, but not 100% Chinese, and we are a mixed couple. I honestly believe this is why the service suddenly changed. In any case, this waitress is the worst I have ever come across. Despite how good the food might be, we will never go back there. The only reason this place got 2 stars from me is because it won't let me choose 0.
