Food is generally good. Their toasties and octopus were especially good. Small place, generally lively atmosphere. Been twice now and the only downside is the waitress. She seems to follow the United Airlines School of Service where she can be rude but smiling as if it somehow cancels it all out. Came back because the food was worth it. This time though had a run in with the manager. He had directed us to sit at the bar, we misinterpreted and thought he meant a table. Rather than politely correct us he sort of shooed us to the bar. We said we d like to sit at a table (restaurant was 2/3 full). He reluctantly agreed, said it would take 5 mins to clean up. No issues. I then made the mistake of pointing to another table which was being cleaned up and saying actually we can sit there (basically to say you don't have to clean the original table). Got this very rude response as if I was trying to rush them and he kindly explained it would still take 5 mins. Quite taken aback and irritated. I tried to explain (relatively tersely) what I meant but didn't get through, what a bad way to start the meal. Too many good restaurants in hk to take their continued nonsense. Not coming back.
