Best Chinese restaurant by far for miles. Good deal available for January with 20% off food bill no matter what day you come.
I've not been to Gar's for a while but it was as I remembered - quality food with attentive but not intrusive service and very enjoyable all round.
Youngest son was up all night being sick after our meal at gars. He was the only one to have the duck. 😕
We booked 31/12/21 1:15pm table for 4. and when booking was asked if their was a special occasion. That initial prompting of their interest gave us a pleasant feeling that the restaurant would acknowledge the special occasion. With that in mind, as it was my friends wife’s birthday we ticked yes, birthday, in the ‘appropriate’ box.
We arrived with a slice of birthday cake (dairy free)in a box and communicated to the water that seated us if they could perhaps bring it out with a candle at the end of our meal and he left with the cake.
A gentleman sitting at the next table to us with his wife, overhearing me, turned to us and said the manager always had something special tucked away for such occasions, he knows him, and he was sure he could do something nice for us. (I was again pleased to hear that and it kept in sinc with their customer service initial interest when booking). the ‘said’ manager came up to me back with the box which had the slice of cake in it, pointed and said “what do you want me to go with this? I explained the above and added, I thought it would be ok seen as they showed interest in booking stage, and after just hearing what the gentleman had just revealed about the manager being greatly accommodating, I enquired “what could he do?” - I further explained the restaurant DID ask if our booking was a special occasion. The manager looked at me blankly and I felt embarrassed and even more awkward and apologetically just asked if they could bring the cake out with a candle. He said ok, left, and also left me red faced.
The young waitress serving us was short in her communication and combative when we asked for ideas and help with menu.
The food was delicious, bar 2 dishes.
We finished eating at 2:30pm. 3:45 no one came to us to ask if we wanted desert and even worse - no sign of the ‘said’ birthday cake. Waitress didn’t know anything about it. The manager had left the restaurant for the afternoon. We finally got the slice on a plate with sparkler
