With response to your management comments, my husband has been a head chef for over 15 years and if he says that the spring rolls were full of beansprouts then I will take this to be true. With regard to your service I found it shocking and your explanation is terrible. It certainly doesn't take extra time for a table of four to eat than table of two. That table I refer to also complained to your waiting staff and asked why we were served before them when they had clearly been in before us. We had also asked where our meal was but had asked for two drink which never arrived, we had to ask again. I think you also need to check your cleaners do a thorough job in cleaning as the corners of the floor and ledges were dirty and dusty. Obviously hadn't been cleaned in a while. As for your curries I do not like Thai curries because they generally have coriander in them and I do not like coriander, hence why I went for a traditional Chinese curry, but as I said it was bland with no spice to it and the chicken was tough. I really don't like the attitude you have shown us.

I am not the manager or owner. I am a customer who treated friends for a meal nothing more. They enjoyed the meal and hail from mainland China by the way..
