“Food was sort of ok but Service SUCKS!!”

Ate ther with my family in 1 Borneo. While their food was sort of okay, their service SUCKS!!! Their waiters and waitresees dont like clearing tables and there were many unoccupied tables with uncleared dishes. Everyone is waiting for the other to clear the tables. Everyone wants to take orders while no one wants to clear nor serve dishes.

Management Should have a CCTV to monitor the staff attitude and sack those LAZY STAFFS!!! They just come to collect their pay every month.

My first visit to The Chicken Rice Shop was at Suria Shopping Mall in Kota Kinabalu Sabah in 2008. The service was slow and the Hainanese chicken rice edible (NOT AS GOOD as those average chicken rice stalls found in Singapore food courts), but at least the place was clean.

On a recent visit to One Borneo Hyper mall Branch in August 2011, I have noticed a baby cockroach appearing from the container of cutlery on the table and quickly moved onto the greasy floor. As I had ordered and paid (one has to order and pay first at a counter), plus the fact that it is not unusual to find cockroaches in some Malaysian restaurant, I decided to go through the whole experience of eating in this place. The place did not look very clean as tables were left un-clear for a period of time and I could feel the greasiness of the floor, the service was slow and a simple dish like tofu with oyster sauce took ages to arrive. Obviously, the food didn’t look and taste appetising after what we had experienced.

Unhygienic place, mediocre food and slow service. Never will I return again.

We had the noodle set meal, we had the curry laksa. It was good!! Even the side-dish, it looks like popiah, and when you put it whole in your mouth, it's like heaven. Have the side-dish after your main dish. You'll know why once you've tasted it that way. =)
