This was our worst dining experience in China and we are Vegans!
As my husband and I both tea lovers, we ordered Jasmine Tea from the menu while waiting for the order.
50 RMB for a pot of tea in the area is a lot of money but as they promised high quality tea we did not mind to pay.
To our surprise the “tea” was tasteless and looked just like ordinary hot water.
When we opened a tea pot, all we saw was 2 tiny leaves floating on the surface. Yes you got it right – 2 tiny tea leaves for 50 RMB!
After we complained they took tea pot away and brought back a new tea pot with adequate amount of tea leaves inside. They also apologized for inconvenience.
We are regularly travelling to China for tea shopping so it was not like we did not understand Chinese tea culture or it was a special tea where 2 tiny leaves would make it work.
Obviously the staff saw Western Faces and decided to play the Rip Off game.
But Rip Off game did not stop there...
When noodles arrived we just were speechless for a moment - the stir fry veggie noodles we ordered weren’t just shop bought (never mind home made!)…they were instant noodles!
Noodles were still stuck together like just been quickly taken from the pack and microwaved in water.
The rest of dishes were cold and bland.
Overall it was the most expensive and the most disappointing dinning experience we had in China so far.
Expensive, Staff is trying to rip you off, Food is bland
