I was still quite a yaya papaya thinking, “this is the heartland, and its a weekday night, this early… there shouldn’t be too bad a queue….”
Boy. Was I half wrong…. When I arrived at the front of the store, there was NO queue. I took my time to flip the menu, by the side of the queue line, took a look at the food models outside the restaurant…. then, when I turned back to look at where the “queue” line is to be, I saw 3 people standing in line! :O
Panic. I hurried over and stood in line. As I waited, the queue grew…. and never ended, even till after my meal.
The friend arrived just in time, when I got waved over to an empty table in the restaurant. Famished, we quickly placed our orders and grabbed some plates of sushi off the conveyor belt.
The staff at this outlet in AMK hub… certainly needs more training in times of service. They seem to be day-dreaming and in a world of their own…. Even with my hand held so high, waving… It took a while before 1 out of 3 “free” staff noticed me. -.-
The lady who took our orders? Bahh.. Blur and emotionless. As if she was forced to work. We asked her about a particular set meal that we saw… well, as it turned out, she had zero clue about what we were asking, neither was she clear about the dish itself, she just said “yes yes“. (you are fortunate I was not quite in the mood either to kick up a fuss…… then.)
We had asked, if the bowl of Chicken Katsudon is the “mini” size, or the original “normal” size. She did not understand. So we flipped over to the ala carte order of the Chicken Katsudon. She must have thought we were asking if the 2 dishes are the same…… -.-
Having eaten the original ala carte version before, I know for sure, the bowl served to me was not the usual serving size. Oh wellz… after the additional sushi, the “mini” bowl worked fine. Fortunately for the staff…..
The food at Ichiban… has not quite disappointed me so far. Loved it…
