Respond to Review of Baihe - Lily Vegetarian - Dongcheng
Review: I don't understand why this restaurant serves vegetarian food. Either it is vegetarian or it is not. I don't understand why all the items in it's menu are look like or tastes like meat? I went to this restaurant believing that I could order something vegetarian that tastes like and look like vegetarian food. If I want to eat meat, I would go to such restaurant. Why would I go to a vegetarian restaurant to eat food that tastes like meat? Another big problem was that nobody spoke English there. I didn't think of it as a problem until I found out that I did not know the gesture to order a glass of water. I had to get up from my table, point at a glass on another table to get a glass. The staff did not get an idea to fill the glass. Then I had to point at a partially filled glass on another table to order water. They served hot water. I could not know how to order cold water and then I had to get up and point at a bottle of water upon which one of the staff member brought a bottle of mineral water. I had ordered a dish made of green beans and tofu. The tofu was over burnt and was not edible. My dinner wasted. They don't have any provision to print a receipt. They gave me a handwritten receipt in chinese. Evening wasted. Had to go to another restaurant for better dinner.
