Since my children were in school I signed up for the Entertainment Book which provides coupons and discounts at local restaurants. My husband and I like to dine out at least once a week and the book often provides incentive to try out a new restaurant.
I had never eaten at Thai Ivory and I had a coupon for $12 value...basically buy one and get one. Two Sundays ago we went to Thai Ivory to try it out. We informed the waitress we had a coupon...She said "sorry we are not doing that special - we are now offering half price appetizer only" Which means the coupon value is now only worth half of what it clearly states it will provide as a discount. I informed her that the coupon clearly states buy one and get one menu item. She went to speak to her manager and he declined to accept our coupon for the terms printed on it. I'm not cheap by any means when I go out to dine, however, what gets me is false advertising and the fact the manager would not honour a coupon and sent the waitress with the message, instead of dealing with it himself.
I do not think this man is a good employer, a good business person and therefore, do not care to eat his food. We left the restaurant and I can tell you I won't be back to try the food.
