Feng House Manchester, NH AVOID!

My son is very much into Chinese while I am into Thai; however, he won the toss up and we ventured out. We spotted this small place and decided to try it.
HUGE mistake.

To start with, the hostess/waitress was very rude from the second we walked in. She yelled at us as we stood waiting to be seated "YOU SIT THERE, in corner... today busy!" We said "ok" and sat down puzzled.... and asked for hot tea and water to start, and a menu... she rolled her eyes and said "NO TEA TODAY NO HOT WATER!” ... (yes, she screamed) then she stormed off into the kitchen and proceeded to scream at the people in the kitchen in Chinese and they of course screamed back.

We were just about to leave when a small child (the hostesses son) came up to us and said "Hello..." and then whacked me in the knee, when I said Please stop he then SPIT on me, and ran away.

We got up, and left... the hostess came chasing us outside demanding “YOU NOT PAY! YOU NOT PAY!" I said, “Lady we did not even ORDER, we asked for menus and never got them!” (she assumed we wanted the buffet they had sitting in the corner, which we rejected)

Stay as far as you can from this place, if I did not experience it for myself, I would have sworn it was a joke.

      It was on South Main Street, next to a restaurant I truly love Lakhorn Thai. Located in a tiny strip mall on a 5-way intersection. Lakorn is such a wonderful restaurant I am shocked this other place could even stay in business in such close proximity.

        I wish I was Stephin King, or at least had his bank account. But I assure everything I said is 100% truth. I would never set one foot in that establishment again, I actually want to save anyone I can from such a disturbing encounter.

        Gryphons...thought you might be interested in this from another (cough, not that I look, cough) food review site.

        Feng House Restaurant
        484 South Main, Manchester, NH

        From the minute I entered this place to the second I left, I felt like I was not wanted there. The woman at the restaurant spent the entire time screaming at her two small children who were running around the bar and up to diners, or screaming at whomever was in the kitchen. The food at the lunch buffet ($5.75) was mixed, some items were decent, but lukewarm or very old and dried out, and nothing was refilled even though some trays sat empty the entire time I was there. My soda ($1.50) was never refilled, nor were the dirty plates removed when I went up for dessert or soup.

        Anyway...this is horrible. She really sounds like she's stressed...or disturbed...and that spitting kid is a MAJOR board of health violation...

            You have to scroll down, gryphons, but it's on here. I'm really sorry about the horror show you and your son had. That's just unhealthy.

              Thank you, but it is scary to now know our experience was not an isolated one.
