Can you expand? I go there once in a while, but I'm not sure who you're talking about.

A HK-style cafe:
-Quick meal, usually in & out in less than 30 mins
-Cheap - two people could probably eat for under $15 after tip.
-Small-ish individual dishes, you would order per person. Usually something on rice/noodle.
-Hot drinks are included in price, cold drinks add a buck or two.

Yeah, that young guy with the glasses. THE WORST SERVER .... EVER! All the other ladies are pretty polite. This a$$hole always gives an attitude of I don`t give a fxxk, just order already. I hate going to that place because of him.

This place is really not that bad.

Pretty good food, and i actually had pretty good service the last couple times that i was there.

I think the OP just ran into a bad server.

I agree the guy with the glasses probably doesn't give the best service, but the rest of them seem to be pretty decent.

I've never had good service at any HK Style Cafe. Alleluiah, E-Canteen, Kingspark. Maybe it's because I'm brown, I don't know. Yet, I can go to a Japanese restaurant and be treated with respect. It's a shame, the food is cheap, but that doesn't mean service has to be sacrificed.

I can't believe someone else mentioned this. I absolutely HATE Alleluia because of this guy. He exudes arrogance. He doesn't say anything or even look you in the eyes. He just looks to his left. To his right. Like he has somewhere better to be the entire time.

Yet in spite of what a fucking cunt he is, he still works there? Must be family. Hence the arrogance.

I've never had problem with anything or any food at Kings Park, breakfast, lunch or dinner. The guy with the monkey suit is great, so is the chubby guy.

E-Canteen I use to go to, often...until one time we were sitting there waiting for our food, and behold... a cockroach is freely walking across the ledge right above the dirty dishes... we were to damn close to it I could see it's whiskers. NEVER been back since.

If you want good Chinese Western food, try Cattle Cafe on Alexandra. Although be sure to order in Chinese or point out what u want on the menu, the servers' English is quite poor.
the new cattle cafe is absolutely amazing !

Funny that the OP should mention about horrible service @ Kingspark.. I can sort of tell that OP is probably not Chinese...

Although the incident would be pretty annoying, I wouldn't think that I would be pissed off enough to rant about on a forum. Probably b/c I'm from HK and am used to the service.

You can't expect service like The Keg or Moxie's or something when you're paying 7 bucks taxes in for a full meal with a drink... that's the price of an appie or a drink @ those places. You pay for the service @ Western restaurants.. if you want good service, pay for it. Stop going to HK-style cafes and expect good service...

I have to admit though that most people I deal with gives acceptable service... if they mouth off @ me I'll probably get pretty pissed off but worst I'll do it not leave them a tip or something.
