I came here the other night to celebrate my partner and his brother’s birthdays. My partner’s parents were visiting from Australia so it was quite a celebration for us. I came straight from work and while I waited for the others to arrive I asked the waitress where the bathroom was. There were no other customers in the restaurant and a large group of staff were sitting around waiting for service to begin. This group decided it would be fun to tell me the bathroom was in different directions around the restaurant. I stood there confused as they were all laughing and speaking to me in Vietnamese – which they realized I couldn’t speak. Finally the waitress I had initially asked, grabbed me by the arm and took me out to the kitchen where the chef was sitting. She pushed me into his lap and said I had to sleep with him first if I wanted to use the bathroom.

I was pretty embarrassed, so I waited outside for my partner and his family to arrive (still needing the toilet). Not wanting to ruin the night, I decided to eat there anyway but needless to say, NEVER AGAIN!

Did they think it was ok to treat me like that because I’m foreign and female?

1 star because the food was ok.
