Fei Jai Ratings and Reviews
I wish this was my Local. Always a great meal and great service.
You must try the Eggplant and Crab meat, the Kung Pao chicken, and the steamed fish. Food is always fresh and I recommend this place to everyone I know. The (very) small bar is nice and relaxed as well.
At first we were seated outside because being a Friday night it was very busy. I thought it would be too cold but the heaters kept us very warm. Every dish was beautifully cooked and so tasty. The place has a great vibe. The egg white crab omelette was a real surprise. Comforting and tasty. We were also really blown away by the chicken steam buns. They were a great combination of textures and flavour. crunchy fried chicken, and super soft steamed bun and a sauce that really popped. Overall a really satisfying experience.
A return visit, this time with family, a mix of young and old. All of whom enjoyed the food, and the service. The staff coped well with the busy period, were friendly and polished. A short but choice wine/drinks list with a good mix, as well as a variety of other drinks.
This is a venue that early or late diners will enjoy. Patience may be needed for the 8.15 bookings as not all 6.00 pm diners have regard for the 8.15 diners waiting for their table, which can be a little frustrating. If you book 6.15 don't sit chatting past 8.15, be considerate and continue your conversation elsewhere, and don't get annoyed with the staff if they politely ask you to move on. We will return soon.
Eight of us went here for my daughters birthday. The food was fabulous (great options also for one vegetarian daughter) good service, the staff knew there stuff and although we had an early sitting we were not rushed or kicked out. Overall a great restaurant, we will be back.
There was a young woman running the restaurant that night obviously as the Matre De who was pushy,rude and treated the staff and customers with little respect. I had made the booking a week in advance and was told on arrival that I would only have the table for an hour and fifteen minutes. So the rush begun to order and get through our courses. We couldn't help it if our food took a while to come out. Our poor waiter was stretched between too many tables and took a while to keep coming back to us which made us go over our allotted time limit. The rude matre de brought our check over before our dessert even came out. Just so rude. It stopped us from ordering more food and drinks. It stopped us from enjoying ourselves. It was a Saturday night and we were in no rush willing to spend money and our money just wasn't wanted. Maybe next time don't over book your restaurant if you can't keep up.
I reserved a table and arrived on time. 25 minutes later i was still waiting for my table. As we were standing in the middle of the restaurant and i asked the staff how the table was going we could not have been forgotten. To the credit of one staff i heard him ask a waiter to set a table three times. Nothing happened. We left.
I have been to Fei Jai a hundred times. Never have I experienced such bad service anywhere in the world. I had dinner there two days before with a friend and we experienced a great evening both food wise and service wise. I don't know what happened in the two days later as there was ample staff and even the owner Peter was on board serving. Basically everything went wrong from the no show of the wine/water through to actually getting up and joining the queue at the cash register to pay.
Would I eat there again or recommend it to a friend - Absolutely I love the place. I put it down to something mysterious that will never happen again.
I requested outside table so we could bring dog. I then called and confirmed the outside table. We arrived and got given the table half inside / half outside right at entrance which was not suitable for dog. I asked to be moved outside and was told they had a late booking for 8 people so had to move us to accommodate and as a result would need the table back in 1.5 hours. We said it would be tight but fine. They brought menus then didn't return to table for 20 mins to take drink order. Then when mains arrived the manager started rushing us and said we need the table back. By this stage we were over her attitude. The manager had a stand up arguement with four older ladies who had been left standing for 20 mins waiting for another table to the point they shouted and left. Food was great, waiters were very pleasant but the manager needs some serious training in customer service. I am happy to discuss her behavior on that evening and the impact it had on our meal.
