China Bistro San Mateo

In a location that has a new restaurant every year or so there was one table and me at 8ish.

Sizzling rice soup was dumped on the table with soup and a plate of rice squares - and the waiter left. I put the rice into the soup - not much sizzle b/c rice wasn't that hot - and it tasted stale.
Shrimp in lobster sauce (guess the discussion got me to order something I haven't had for years) was just passable with a watery sauce - and overpriced.
Staff were very busy talking to each other, mopping the floor (in the table area - guess they were anxious to not have to clean up after the customers left) and ignoring the customers.
Can't imagine how they plan to stay in business.
