The restaurant was owned and operated by an Asian family and all the workers were Asian.
The food was wonderful and fresh. Tonight, being Friday, they featured Seafood including Crab legs, Salmon and Shrimp. They also had a sushi bar (I don't like sushi) and a mongolian buffet.
The price was very economical too.
The restaurant was somewhat crowded and the buffet lines were full. Everyone was enjoying the buffet and very cordial as we tried not to bump into each other. There was one minor exception. This woman kept going up to the help and asking, "Do you speak English?" She seemed somewhat exasperated. As I said, the restaurant was owned and operated by an Asian family. They spoke English but with a very thick, thick accent. They were also somewhat shy and seemed humble, yet accommodating. They kept responding to the woman, "yes" in a quiet voice. The woman asking if they spoke English just kept going from person to person. I almost felt like asking her, "What do you want. Just ask it." But I didn't. I decided to just ignore her as everyone else was. Finally she went back and sat down. I overheard her complaining about the help but she really didn't want anything else from the buffet. I think she wanted more of a certain dish that had run low, but she never did ask the question even though they kept saying yes. Her husband just shook his head and mostly ignored her. He was munching away. The food was really good.
As I thought about it later, I think if I were to offer her advice, I would have suggested she just ask her question. I am sure they would have been very accommodating. We live in a very multi cultural society and we all should learn to accept it and embrace it.
