Review of Northern Manor

Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 May 2012

My friends and I have lunch here once or twice a week. We usually get the pan fried noodles with chicken plus 1 or 2 dim sum dishes like bean curd, beef rice noodle, shumai, pork buns or sesame balls. Our bill is $10 per person, a great value! Since we are regulars and know all the waiters, we get great service too.

The place is busy and the portions are large but the service is RUSHed, unfriendly, rude. The waiter(s) didn't smile or make pleasant conversation. They hand you a menu and expect you to order right away. If you tell them you're not ready they come back too quickly. To them it's not that we're dining, it's a "feeding" and they want to be done with us. When we asked what type of rice was included, they said only white rice. After the main dishes were put on the table we waited for the white rice. When we got the waiter's attention he said EVERYTHING is separate. White rice not included. We all looked at each other and told him we didn't want it, we'd just eat the fried rice that we ordered. Another waiter arrived with the white rice and we told he no thank you. The main waiter, who took our order, acted as if he was doing us a favor by taking our order. He didn't tell us about the food preparation just kept asking us to order. Plates put on center of the table - self serve. They didn't refill water, offer condiments, ask if everything (or anything) was good, or ask if anyone wanted a knife and fork. Just not a nice feeling. I've been there before and I like the food but they are rude and ungrateful business people. Tip reflected the sentiment and waiter stood over us with a face on and hands on his hip waiting for us to sign the check hoping to intimidate us into a bigger tip. Really no class and we feel it's anti-American. They may be like that to their regular customers too and maybe they don't mind. We wish the people were nice as it's a good local place and we'd like to go but it's just unpleasant to deal with the staff.
