Hu's Asian Bistro Downtown reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Poor service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 12/21/2012
    I have gone to Hu's on first before and had received excellent service from mostly male service personnel. This time I received a dismal service. The restaurant was not busy at all. Two of my friends and came at 1 pm. The service was slow and poor. The couple that came after us had their orders taken and served before us. Took orders for drink as soon as we sat but took long to serve. No refills of drinks were offered until we asked for them towards the end of the meal. I asked for refill of my coffee, the server did not come back for my coffee. I had to ask another server. The servers ( all women) were gathered near the bar chatting among themselves. Our server did not even asked how our food were tasting

    Food was not up to what I have experienced in the past. Rice was dry and hard, wrong kind of lettuce served with lettuce wrap appetizer. Best part of the meal was the lovely waitress.

    Nice and clean, but too noisy though! We don't like having to yell at each other just to eat dinner. If people want to go there for snacks and to drink, they should be separated from those of us who want a dining experience.

  • Bad Day at Hu's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/26/2012
    Good morning, It's not often that I respond but when I do it's ussualy positive. Unfortunatley, this won't be. I ordered the s+s pork/beans/brown rice while my colleague ordered the ginger beef/brown rice. At the end of the meeting we both commented to each other that the rice was awnful and was hard as a rock. That would explain why the both of us picked at our meal and left half on the plate. The waitress did not come by to ask how things were. However,she did ask while I was paying and when I offered her my comments on the rice, she responded by saying...."yeah, I heard that too and I don't know why that is." It's not what I was expecting to hear. The irony is that I provided 15% gratuity for poor service and food quality.

    We would have preferred a larger table for our party of 6. It was increadibly squishy and crowded when we got our food even though the waitress insisted that she could make the food all fit. That was very dissapointing and took the fun out of sharing the dishes we had ordered. Also, they did not have the only 2 types of beer that I drink: Molson 67 (they do not carry) and Michelob Ultra (they were out).

    On Sept 8 at 6 p.m. our anniversary celebration. This was my 4th time at this restaurant. Waitress was very good, friendly, informative and attentive. We ordered Green Curray Satays for an appitizer. It was good. Once it came we ordered our meals. Our dinners came immediately after our app. plates were cleared. My husband had the General Tao' chicken. It was spicey, very good. I had the Honey Glazed ALmond Chichen. I was greatly disapointed. It was panko crusted. But my chicken had a thick crust, it was dry, hard, chewy. Seemed all crust and no chicken. I ate what I could. What I left on my plate I showed to our waitress. She apologized and gave us a 25% employee discount. We were finished before 7 p.m. Felt a little rushed.

    Waitress was not very friendly. The food did come out fast which was good, but she forgot an item we ordered and did not apologize. She did not come to see how the food was either. She also did not thank us for the tip after she processed the bill. We noticed her chatting at other tables of customers she knew. We may not return, although we did enjoy the food and atmosphere.

    My friends and I (9 in total) really loved and enjoyed our dinner! This was the first time any of us had been there. The prices were very reasonable and the food was really good. Our server was also pleasant and came by often. It wasn't very busy (only 2-3 other tables) which meant we could talk with each other without shouting over the din. The atmosphere was also very nice. We would for sure head there again, I would recommend your bistro to people I know.

  • I've had better here before.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/6/2012
    Our little table for 6 could hardly hold all of the appetizer dishes and keep our cutlery above board. My drink order came back wrong once (wrong kind of Caesar) and our server seemed to be in a hurry for us to order though the restaurant was less than half full. Four giggly, preteen, girls made frequent trips from the balcony to washroom and that was mildly annoying. Ok that's the site, on to the food. I tried several appetizers: crab wontons - very good, lettuce wraps - ask for iceberg lettuce if you can, dry ribs - very tasty and plentiful, calamari - I've had better at the Keg, green curry satay - mild and almost flavorless. My entree was General Tao's Chicken and while it was a large serving it was simply alright.
