  1. Visited Daseo Queensbay Mall again today. Unfortunately, portion gets smaller with each visit, and this time it’s like half of the usual portion of the Shimson Stew.

    When I requested to see the manager I was told that she’s not around and will only be back at 3:30pm, and only the regular wait staff are available. When I finally managed to file a complain via phone they asked for a photo proof, lucky I have photos form each visit, and of course it shows how small today’s portion is.

    And what’s so insulting, they offered a 10% discount for my next visit as compensation! Looks like Daseo is no longer in the list of our recommended dining place, not will we be patronizing the outlet especially after the way they have handled this whole thing.
