went there for dinner food are good and look heathly and the price is kinda correct but for me i won t call this a restaurant as it s not a inch of service some of the side dish i want wasn t ready so they offer to bring them to my table by giving me one of these stand... but they clearly forgot me, so my gf had to get them for me second even if we eat there they still served you the food in a paper bowl , not even some real plate ... and on the table they putt sign that basicly you have to clean yourself so they can focus on food , but isn t a restaurant also about service ?? so for me i will call in more like a cafeteria ( like ikea ) or more like an organic fast food guess cost of the rent make them cancel all service staff to save few rmb luckily when visiting the wc they didn t ask guest to clean them after
went there especially to try the spicy tuna as per City weekend article , ginger s spicy tuna is one of the best in town well not on my taste, it was tasteless, not a inch of spicy or crunchyless and also rice was very soggy and chewy and worst it was room temperature i also try the mezze platter who was good to be honnest after having these 2 starter, we decide go have dinner somewhere else as we thought that we didn t want try main course specialy that i really find them xell overpriced but have to say that the ambiance is very nice and cosy also something i don t like is that the advertising menu outside don t match the menu they gave us , some price are wrong and some dishes been erased ...
My wife and I had gift vouchers for Glo London Shanghai - so we thought we would celebrate a recently heard piece of good news by having dinner there. We chose a special offer that they where having which was a bottle of wine and a steak to share for two. The wine was a distinctly average Hungarian Red and the steak rather tough, however I have had worse. At the end of the meal we presented our Vouchers to the server who also happened to be the shift manager Jerry. He told us that he would not accept the vouchers as they where only for the a ‘la carte menu. We asked politely if it was possible to speak to the manager to see if there was something we could do about this, he told us "no." We said that we did not think that that attitude was very good for customer service his reply was "I don’t care." We said we would complain and would still like to see the manager- his reply was "I don’t care and I've quite anyhow." I contacted the company with my complaint - there reply was that there General Manager was too busy to speak to me on the phone and if I had a complaint I would have to come there and find there manager Teejay directly and talk to him face to face as he "was too busy to make a call." If your looking for average food and absolutely terrible service, and in shanghai that sets a whole new low bar then Glo will not disappoint. John
So I looked at their website, saw the prices, sent an email and received a quick reply and within a few days had organised a demonstration class with them. The demo class was actually really good, I felt comfortable, the teacher knew what she was talking about and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
Unfortunately then came the discussing with a course consultant about signing up...... On the website it said there would be a maximum of 5 people in each class, at the discussion I was informed it was 6, not too big a deal, but still the wrong information and the consultant said she would promise a maximum of 5 people. I then noticed on the paperwork it said that classes would only start once there were 3 group members signed up, I spoke to the consultant and she told me to ignore it and the class was due to start soon no matter how many people had signed up. After a few days at home to think about it and speak to other schools I decided that I would like to sign up with Mandarin Inn, and contacted them again by email saying that I would be very interested in signing up, again checking about the promises made at the discussion. I was informed that the promises stood so asked for them to be included in the contract and then I would happily join........... Suddenly no more contact, the school completely ignored my email and will not discuss anything in the contract.
