“Tasteless food backed up by worst manager's attitude”

My family and I went there for dinner and ordered Pad Thai noodles, Chinese angel hair noodles… We couldn’t chew the Pad Thai noodles so we returned it for them to remake, then again the same thing. Chinese angel hair noodles plate was tasteless so we didn’t eat more than 2 forks… All that is backed up by the worst attitude from the manager who came to make this place more unwelcoming after we complained about the food. He made sure to show us that he doesn't care.
Don’t waste your time. Maybe this manager will learn that managing a restaurant is not only about food.

If there's something that you don't like in this place, you'd better be prepared for the WORST attitude ever from the manager. He's ready to be rude, to challenge customers and to treat them like some mean school teacher scolding a student, just to try to prove his point. Managing a restaurant isn't about making sure the food is served, it's about putting customers first and making sure you have a 'customer-oriented' attitude, instead of the very unprofessional attitude that you showed today. It's pathetic! I feel sorry for this place. Some training in professionalism would be good. At least, we finally almost got what we wanted, which is fair, but there was no need to behave in a bad manner. Consequently, you've lost a few customers, but I know you "don't care", just as you said to us.

The noodles were stale. The Pad Thai was over sauced and the sauce was not good. Way too sweet. The dish also had too much salt. I had the combo pad thai and the shrimp were of questionable freshness and origin and did not taste good. The red bell peppers don't go in pad thai and some of the standard vegetables like bean sprouts were missing. The soup was good and so was the eggroll, but no sauces. Not returning. Either take the pad thai off the menu or rework it. Not sure about the other dishes. The restaurant needed to be cleaner.

The service was mediocre - our waiter kept putting his hands all over the rims of our glasses when he refilled our drinks. The food was truly bland and the restaurant itself wasn't clean.
