Hoping for an early night as we were leaving Ngapali the next morning, we turned up at 6:30pm for supper at The Best One restaurant. At 7:30, I started tapping my watch, & the waitress replied with smiles and "Cook now, 5 minutes." Did not feel reassured as the neighbouring table was still waiting for cutlery, & they'd arrived before us. "Cook now, 5 minutes" was repeated a couple more times, until 5 minutes to 8, when I gave her notice that we would leave at 8 pm. She squealed and ran to the kitchen, but as no food was forthcoming, we paid for our drinks and left. Lonely Planet, you are wrong again! Slunk back to hotel, which produced a delicious crab curry in 20 minutes.
