One afternoon in a restaurant with very nice outdoor environment.
Some while later...
While the place is nice, the food is good, this "it's a standard" thing they practising really disrupts our eating experience. Suddenly it's no longer feel exclusive (beside of the price), and made my wife declared she doesn't want to return here for another special night out. "Well lunches are fine, and if someone invited us" she re-clarified.
As of myself, with this kind of service strictness (and price) we felt better accommodated in Bakmie GM, where I can order extra bowls of their rich and delicious hot chicken broth for free, ask for extra sweet and sour sauce when I feel like having one, where the staffs looks like working to satisfy my need instead of constantly reminding me of their strict (lame) standards.
It's the same reason why I avoid using "cheap" flights but/that charges extra for everything outside the ticket, even on things mundane like seat reservation. (byms)
