Actually quite the contrary. Your server cooks your food the entire time you are not allowed. The service has been exceptional for me the two times I went. We had a guy named David and he was super attentive and quick. I loooooooove this place.
My wife an I went here for lunch. We waited maybe 40 minutes despite being one of two groups in the restaurant at the time.
Our food came. My Pad See Ew was honestly pretty good. My wife's dish was an inedible mess of salt and overcooked hot peppers. She asked to send her dish back and get something else instead. The owned agreed and took her order for the new dish. A few minutes later he came back out an informed us that he was going to charge for all three dishes. The most amazing exchange ensued when we tried to explain that that was not what we wanted:
1) He rather loudly called my wife a racist, informing her "we are equal, our skin is the same." Aside from being bizzarre and irrelevant to trying to send back a dish of bad food, it was actually literally true - my wife grew up in southern china and was the only other asian person in the restaurant.
2) He yelled at us every time we tried to talk or reason with him. Just outright tantrum-style yelled over us when we tried to talk.
3) He refused to adjust the bill.
4) He disinvited us from ever returning.
So... yeah. I mean I guess maybe some of their other food is good? I suppose I'll never know. There's enough other Thai restaurants in Atlanta that I don't think We'll be missing much, other than verbal abuse with our meals.
I got no idea what ALIENZRUS is getting at but you have to admire someone who delves more than a decade into the CL archives.

If Hayakawa only gets 3 out of 5 stars, I'd love to know where the 4 and 5-star sushi joints are.
I assume the removed comment is about RuSans
Koreans are smart, making customers cook their own food cuts down on costs.
Dante's is legendary for all Atlantans who were raised with the treat of going to The Underground location for special occasions and to impress out of town guests. It is an unforgettable experience and an iconic landmark for our city. After 51 years, they will be closing their doors for good this summer - probably to be replaced by another high rise office building - and a part of Atlanta's history, culture, personality and experience will be gone forever. Thank you Dante for following through on your unique vision and contributing so much to our community for so many years :)

Love Huku and Jey. We go almost every Friday. Quite simply they just have fresh fish - sounds easy but is harder to deliver than it seems.
Love Huku and Jey. Am there almost every Friday.... Highly recommended. Quite simply it's just fresh fish. Souds easy but much harder to get than it seems.
Thanks, everyone. It's good to be back.
Excellent, welcome back, and thank you for the informative post!
Great to have you back!
I was upset when TOMO moved to Buckhead and we had a "sushi void" in Vinings.
The location where he was reopened as HOKI.
It's SO good!!!!
IMHO a VERY close second to TOMO.
Give them a try.
The pizza here was good, although to be honest pretty damn greasy (not that that's always a bad thing). The service? TERRIBLE! How can a girl sit at an empty bar with two not-busy bartenders and still not get a drink? Oh wait, because one bartender is staring at her phone and not paying attention to her job, while the other is talking to someone else's girlfriend about how hard he parties. Party on. Even after asking to see the beer list nobody came back to ask me what I wanted. By the time they did I was ready to go. I wish I hadn't included a tip when I paid at the front since the only inkling of service I got was someone dropping a pizza at my table. I got my own damn plate, cutlery, napkins, water. With that many staff on hand I'd expect for at least one of them to be working.
Every pizza I've had at Sapori di Napoli has been amazingly good.
Wow, well it wasn't a review my food but, I'm still going to up my game to prevent this type of rendering of a new asshole.
Just to widen our knowledge of the world, I want to point out that in Italian "ammazza" is never a noun. In this case it refers to the expression used as an American would use "awesome", while literally it is the third person singular of the verb "ammazzare", which means "to kill". So the correct translation would be "He/she kills"
