AWFUL SERVICE ALERT: Ming Bowl in Dubai

RATINGS (out of 4)
- Quality: ?
- Efficiency: -3
- Friendliness: -2
- Overall: -2.5 (AWFUL)


REVIEW
I went to this place, lacated at Executive Towers at Business Bay in Dubai, ordered some food, and made a deal with them not to take more than 15 minutes to deliver to the neighboring building where I work.

Half an hour passed by so I called them and they said they will call back within 5 minutes. 15 minutes later they said the delivery guy will arrive within 5 minutes. 15 minutes passed by and no delivery guy, no calls, nothing.

Figures cause when I ordered I had to actually ask them if they wanted my name and phone number, and they wrote it down on some scratch papar, in the worst hand-writing I can imagine!

Later I ordered from Just Falafel nearby. They said it will arrive within 15 minutes, and they delivered within 5 minutes. I thought it was Ming Bowl knocking on my door, so I did not answer (cause I did not want trouble), and the angels called me asking me to open the door!

Just Falafel not only serves healthy food (esp. if you choose brown bread, baked falafel), but they actually deliver!


MORE INFO
If want to kill yourself, go for Ming Bowl!!!

SERVICE ALERT: SALIK (Dubai)



SUMMARY
SALIK fined me for passing by its toll gates without the new license plates, then took around a month asking me details they could have accessed anyway, just to tell me to visit a branch to submit the violation dispute to them :/


REVIEW
Not only did SALIK not really solve the traffic problems, but I got a violation from SALIK that I paid to the Vehicle & Licensing Department in Abu Dhabi, for passing through the toll bridges while having the old system's license plate :S

Nobody informed me that there are new license plates in the city where I registered the car, and nobody informed me (not even SALIK) that I would be fined for using the old license plate, and my time to renew the vehicle registration did not yet come, so why would I even update the plate, and why would I be fined for not updating it before the renewal deadline, without being informed?

Not only that, but they asked me questions about me, the vehicle, its owner, its registration, its registration image, and my SALIK account details in FULL for around a month, and then they tell me to visit a branch.

Importance: High
After all the information you requested for entire month and now you are telling me that there are no Salik violations? These are violations by Salik that I paid at the Abu Dhabi traffic department before renewal and changing of the license plate to the new format.
Please refund the Salik fines stated; they are associated with the records at the traffic department that I already paid. Just because I paid them and are from last year does not mean that they cannot be refunded.
Thanks,
Row

Dear SALIK Customer Service,
You have asked about almost every single possible detail about my Salik account, the car, its registration, and the violation, and I even copy-pasted the violation that I am referring to. This has taken way too much time from me and has been ongoing for almost an entire month with no results. It seems as if you are attempting to stall this process and keep the fines by asking me all these questions and hoping that I stop corresponding.
Here is the violations screenshot you requested, though you could have simply seen that by accessing my SALIK account. I hope is the last piece of information that you request from me.

Thanks,
Row

Comments *: Dear Salik, Would like to make a complaint about the violations on my accounts mentioned below. I called and they told me it was because the license plate was the old model. The problem is that I had no idea that there were new license plates, and my renewal was not due yet at that time. Can you be a little more fair in your judgment and consider the fact that I did not even know there were new license and that having the old ones would be considered a violation?
