Asian Flavors Restaurant review


We got the chance to experience dining twice in this South East Asian restaurant. The first time we went, we were lovingly greeted by the receptionist donned in a professional black suit and a bulky lady with plated of food in her hand at the Reception. We came to know later that she is in fact the owner (so perhaps reserves the right to present that sort of unlikely image at the Reception?)

Soon we were escorted us to our booked table right at the end. It was perfect for us since we preferred to be in a corner with little disturbance and intervention.

We had ordered 1 buffet and 5 ala carte’ items for a family of six to them. My nephew of below 3 years of age was also with us. As per the restaurant policy, a child less than three years is not charged for the buffet so we gave him one item from the buffet which he really loves the most, chicken soup.

One purchased buffet was taken by our father and he had asked me to bring some items for him since our order was going to take long time. I did so but soon was followed by the owner warning us that we have only one buffet so two people cannot use the buffet items. We were like so shocked and had to explain that it was for our father who has taken the buffet. It spoiled our mood completely, and during the entire time we were there she kept an eye on us from the Reception while gulping her food in her mouth. It was very annoying. At one point, we wanted to leave the place but since we had already prepaid the food through online vouchers, we were hesitant. Then there came a time when she placed her waiter near to her table. Good thing was that it happened when we were already moving out having finished the meal and bad thing was that we didn’t have any one else to complain this too. Anyways, we had left but had to come again, since we had more vouchers to be utilized. We were hopeful that the second time experience will be not so bad; and we were wrong!

The next time we came, we found the owner in the same job of eating at the reception without a pause. We ignored and moved on to inquire our booked table. This time she refused to give us the last table saying that it is already reserved whereas there was not reservation slab put on it and no one came till the last hour of the lunch time. We felt insulted. Still, moved on. This time, the food was not as good as the last time. The items were limited by 2 or 3. Most of them were the vegetables unlike the last time and they were not properly refilled. The leftover buffet items were in the end parceled by the owner for herself!

They took long time, longer than normal, to bring the ordered items to us. The ala carte’ items were good no doubt. Food was fresh and the taste was right. Ambience and seating arrangements well done.

However, the used utensils were disposed on a table very near to the eating tables and gave an ugly sight. The guests were well entertained by a TV with large sound systems but the wirings were not properly organized and some children actually started to play with them. They had to take care of the safety issues but did not give much importance to it – one could actually easily trip down the wirings.

When we left, we had mentioned to the annoyed owner that we would like to write down the reviews of her hotel on her website if she has. She was anxious and taken back because she knew we did not have a good experience owing to her negligent hospitality. This made her be much sweet with us and she began introducing more about the restaurant and also promoting her other businesses. We were not impressed. She offered a fine farewell…but we are sure never to go back!

  1. We had a lunch once in Asian Flavors last month. The ambience is great as well as the food. We had Ala Carte Menu, though I think, Buffet would have been better. Food is really great and yummy, I really did enjoyed it. The mixed fried rice is really good, as well as the fishes we had like fried tilapia, salmon, and lapu-lapu and shrimp tempura. The food is really tasty as well as the dessert, though I think, it would have been better if they didnt put color green in the leche flan. And the problem I saw is that it took them almost 30 minutes in delivering the food we ordered.
