A Bad Dining Experience worth Blogging About!
Felt disgusted.. never had i walked out of a restaurant before in my life but this was totally unacceptable.
Colleagues & i walked out of Chilli’s Empire Gallery today as we felt disrespected and they actually made us look stupid!
Well stupid this CHILLI’s EMPIRE GALLERY!
I’ve always been a big fan of Chilli’s… loved the environment and food quality has always been up to standard!
However, maybe because i’ve never gone in a big group as i learnt that if you go in a group and your friends have not arrived yet, YOU CANT SIT FIRST! it’s called their NO SITTING INCOMPLETE PARTIES house rule!
Anyway, the girls got there before us and the management told them they’d have to wait till we got there.. So just to be sure, they asked if that meant they the 9 of us can be on the same table and they said yes… so they just went to have a walk while waiting for us.
We arrived 10 minutes later and were told the same thing (not realizing the girls came earlier). Gave the girls a call and they came over. We asked if we can be seated yet and they said hold on. They went trying to arrange some tables but had some difficulty. (MIND YOU THE RESTAURANT was EMPTY AT THAT TIME). They came back 5 minutes later and asked if they can split us into 2 tables!
By this time of course we were furious and were contemplating whether we should just leave and instead of offering a solution, the restaurant manager just said sorry and thank you and smiled. (At least he smiled)
Just if they knew they were dealing with a bunch of comms and online experts!
Anyway, i’ll leave work out of my personal life but here’s to you Chilli’s Empire Gallery!
You should really do something about your team or rules as you just lost 9 chilli’s lovers!
