Random thoughts

That’s fair! I guess I never send dishes back and can’t imagine doing so for anything that wasn’t a truly extreme case, so maybe I’m not a good test for this. I don’t think I would adjust my tip by any noticeable margin based on these circumstances, but in reading yours and other posts I do understand why someone might.

Are there high-end Cantonese restaurants with good service?

I haven’t been to many high end ones in the US but i got better service at China Tang at MGM with my brief visit there for dessert.

I think that would be a good thread.

Hotel restaurants might be an exception to the rule since there’s an additional layer of management.

The highest-end Cantonese place I’ve been to was the Crystal Jade branch in SF, on which they spent $14 million, but service was about like you’d get in a suburban strip mall.

I never knew peeps grew in trees

No. You want mature hummingbirds.

Is it just me, or does the Board seem less active than usual? :frowning:

Blame it on the man who refuses to ever lose an argument, even if it means arguing with himself.
