Waitress took over 30 min after taking my debit card & never came back she finally did & preceded to tell me she ran it 5 times & the card did not go through; error message said "duplicate trans",looked up my bank acct n saw the amt was debited and was processing .Called over the mgr. & she suggested we go to the ATM. RIDICULOUS!! We were just going to walk out & they had the police officer hold us at the door. After calling my bank at the suggestion of the "manager", had the banker on the phone to verify the trans. The mgr. declined to speak to them. With the banker still on the phone banker cancelled the trans. &refunded my acct. so that the mgr. could rerun the card. Of course she ran the EXACT same amt causing the card to decline again due to "DUPLICATE TRANS ERROR" Even the banker said that when the mgr. reran the card it did not show up on my acct. (meaning that it was their computer).While the police basically held my niece hostage i finally just went to the ATM to get cash:/
What I know happened was the waitress ran my card, lost the approved receipt and ran my card several times causing it to decline for DUPLICATE TRANSACTION ERROR.
Manager was pretty much useless and should have known better. NEVER AGAIN!!!
Great place to hang out for Asians – It's a cafe. Its a restaurant. Its a bar.
All in one place. I would give a 5 for the asmosphere but only 4 for the food. The food was okay. They have some exotic drinks that i can't wait to try them all. Blue Baby is good!
Very authentic Asian eatery. – Anyone familiar with modern restaurant in most Asian countries will recognize the setup, a small cafe with modern decor, nice presentation on plate, and friendly staff that caters to the 20 and 30 something demographic. The menu is extensive, with Chinese,Korean, and Japanese fare. Sushi is also available and is of very good quality. This would be a very good place for a dinner date if only for one thing, i could not help but notice all of the stains on some of the chair and walls, really takes away from the classiness that this restaurant aspires for, a little more cleanliness in the dining room and Cafe 101 would become a landmark.
this place sucks. – Me and my hot date walked in (so it was just a party of two) on a Thursday night at 11pm. We were sat at a table and we were NEVER greeted by the waitress. We watched her go to every other table and take orders. This place just sucks, don't go here. The food isn't even that great. It's just convenient.
nice hang out – one of the very few restaurants that are open til 2am. i always come here late at nights with my friends and we always order different things. its a nice place to be. and the drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic) are great. the service is decent as we always seem to be able to make conversations with some of the waitresses and they attend to our needs. the food is great btw. its not traditional chinese food only as they also serve sushi and korean foods. i recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys asian food and good service.
asian food is good – i've been to this place quite a few times and i think this place is great! the drinks and food are good. they have chinese, japanese, and korean cuisine. their food is kinda fusion, not really traditional but its so tasty! the drinks are so goood, i like them all. its located in a shopping center where a lot of other cool places are.
its a bit far from where i am (i'm in the loop) and this place is in the heart of bellaire (new china town). parking can be a bit of a hassle when you come on the weekends. the place is open till 2am so you have plenty of time to find parking. the only MAJOR downside to this place is it's service! the staff is terrible! it's like they never been trained properly (except to get your drinks). food comes out fast! but you probably would see your waitress only twice! they never check up on you and trying to find them to get your check can be a hassle. (a lot of times i see the wait staff standing at the back wall with their phones or talking to each other.)
Please go there, food is good! you can determine your own standard for service.
