Just freshly out of pop tates, and itching to write this. We got in, and waited forever for a waiter to notice us. I placed an order of tomato soup and a plate of steamed veggies to a fellow who barely spoke any english let alone understand what i was saying.
Half a min later maybe less not more, i called him back. And i requested him to get me the pomfret without the regular addons of mashed potatoes and salad( i think thats what he said came with it,as we could figure just one word of what he said i.e "salad") and to get me the steamed veggies with it instead. Ofcourse he could charge me extra if need be.
He says ' not possible order de diya, ban gaya". i said its ready in a minute??? so i say fine stick to the old order.
But i dont give up. I go down look for the manager, thinking its the old staff i know. But no, some new guy. So i explain the situation to him, he comes up double checks if i want boneless or with bones. I say boneless, hoping that finally somone got it right.
Next thing i know, there's a whole pomfret with bones:) mashed potatoes, salad and some steamed veggies on a plate. Plus an extra side order of steamed veggies.
Ah,,, and the tomato soup, what can i say but pl never order it. Its sour and thick maybe canned. Almost like hot ketchup. The fish tasted fine so i had just that and some veggies. Told them to dogggie bag the extra veggies, but it never came to us when we were leaving. And the bill came after eternity.
The only redeeming factor was that they dint charge me for the extra veggies. But all else was terrible. And the steam of the sizzlers is suffocating and absolutely no vent on the top section. So friends if you're not particular, welcome to pop tates. If you are, Beware...
