Kingspark, Richmond - Do not go here!

Worst Service EVER

I went there for breakfast and no one offered to seat me.

I sat down, waited for about 10 minutes before I was able to flag down a server. I asked for a menu and as she is walking to get it she mutters "Next time you wait to be seated".

I was stunned! I responded "If there was someone to take me to a seat, I would've waited."

Disgusted with the attitude, I got up and walked out. On my way out, I told her to enjoy working here for the next 10 years.

I personally would have waited a bit longer. But yea, Kingspark is bad for service, seems like they're always chatting with each other at the register.

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 main point I'm stressing is that as a paying customer in a restaurant - regardless if I seat myself or not, that kind of snarky comment is ridiculous from a server.

Is that a younger or older person who served u? My guess is an older one cuz the young ones usually have great services.

I go there, service is mediocre. Usually have to flag ppl to down to take my order. But other than that, it's not bad IMO.

Service is not superb but food is great and fair price too. I go there for the food, not for service. I admit, I never been there for breakfast though, only dinner.

At least you did the right thing and left. I hate shitty service I don't care what restaurant it is. I'm not saying a server should kiss your ass but they should be polite at worst. Treat people how you want to be treated and don't be a bitch or a cock. Good on you for calling her out to. I try and be nice to people but if they flip the bitch switch on me I'm bringing it back 3 times worse and right in their face I'm not mumbling it under my breath.

IMO Kingspark has better service than some chinese cafe's and the food is better hands down.

The service is not great but I have seen a lot worse, the only person I have a problem with at Kingspark is the dude with the honger hairdue, super scronny and smiles like a retard. When I ordered I specifically spoke in english, I said the name of the plate AND the order number (eg. A 8 ) and he writes it down and when the food comes it wasn't what i ordered. So I told him and he brought out the slip that he wrote down and said "you see, this is what you ordered" and pointed it out on the menu. I said "that's what you wrote down, not what i ordered, there is a clear difference between what is written down and I ordered, dont get them mixed up" He shakes his head and walks away to get my correct order. This is the only dude I have a problem with, the others are often pretty good.

There is a difference between no service and bad service.

I also do not think because it is an asian restaurant that it is exempt from its responsibility to provide appropriate service to a customer.

In this case, it was a server mouthing off rudely to a customer, that is not acceptable in any place of business, by any standard.

...security was there within minutes

The only 2 HK style cafes I would go to in Richmond is either e-canteen or Kingspark wouldn't even bother with the rest....... As for the service there is pretty much minimal service in these HK style cafe and I am pretty much use to it by now.
