The starters didn't arrive together either. The soft shell crab was plonked in the middle of the table without an introduction or explanation. It wasn't fresh but we didn't complain. My fois gras which was supposed to have passion fruit dressing had strawberries instead!
The main course was average - taste and presentation that could be expected from our local Chinese restaurant. We ordered sea bass, which was not fresh and quite unpleasant in taste. When we gave this feedback to the waiter he was apologetic, but the manager argued that it had been delivered this morning and the chef had tried it - they felt it was fresh! I told them that we weren't making an issue in order to get a refund, but just giving feedback. We received no apology or appeasement.
Service was appalling, except for out table waiter who seemed embarrassed and apologized several times. The rest were badly trained and arrogant, especially the sommelier and manager.
All in all, we were gutted. We could have had a much better evening at The Good Earth - food, presentation and service at half the cost! Michelin stars?? Don't be fooled and don't waste your money.
