    AVOID jim's Tavern, Johnston st Melbourne

    For those wanting to sample greek food in Melbourne...AVOID Jim's Greek Tavern...U have been warned!
    --- My post a few sites in Oz & now here...
    >>>
    Racist taunts in this old immigrant restaurant.

    I will give a FAT zero star for this greek racist restaurant. I have had a wonderful experience here since the 80s, but not anymore!
    Recently i wanted to treat 5 guests to a 'splendid' greek dinner and have booked a table for 6. My guests arrived 10-15mins ahead of me and they were seated in a dinghy corner.
    When I arrived i asked to be seated elsewhere but the waiter pretended NOT to understand English or Ozzie speak!
    I was told by my guests that they have already been moved TWICE in under 10 mins! Yes, my guests are all Chinese visitors.
    I apologised to my group and gathered them all out of this racist joint.

    BTW this post came about after reading other posts complaining about the racist staff and the racist taunts in this jim's tavern.
    If you DON'T want to be subjected to racist taunts, then DON'T bother to spend your hard earned money there. These racist immigrant restaurateurs are having such narrow attitude! I read other reviews that the waiter called the Asian 'Chinaman'...So, to be fair, What a wog!

    lagi satu: This racist restaurant now have only a 'banquet' menu. Its set dinner with variable pricing at diff time. It ranges from AUD55 to85 per head excluding taxes, service charges, tips, and drinks, of course.

    Maybe other PRC Chinese gave them a hard time before.

    PRC Chinese have the habit of ordering 10 dishes but only consume 5% of the foods.

    They talk very loud, dirty table, and normally upset a lot of other guests.

    They want to show off they can afford to spend money but to the restaurants and guests, the fact that 95% of the foods are not consume show to others, the restaurant's food is bad!!

    I would kick them out or banish them to a far corner if I am the waiter

    Why not ta pau the food from this shithole restaurant, and pee on the food, and of course take a video clip to share....

    If ta pau is not allowed, I have plan B.

    Yes, they are such people.

    But when the restaurant operator and/or the waiter stereotype all other Chinese, this is wrong.

    Can't blame the waiter cos' Chinese is Chinese.

    You do not expect the waiter to be able to differentiate between Malaysian Chinese and PRC Chinese.

    The fact that these customers were moved twice showed the restaurant was not impressed with their behavour.

    Yes, move them to a corner or kick them out

    You still don't get the point... No stereotype is allowed unless you stated clearly that you don't want their business at the front door or webpage.

    For example, many restaurants in Europe stated clearly they don't allow children below 5 years old as small children can be noisy, out of control and disturb the dining ambience.

    I tell you.. wait until one PRC fella sensationalizes this shithole greek eatery in the Chinese web and share among the mainlanders, not just this shithole restaurant affected but overall Melbourne f&B will feel the heat ..

    When you run a business, just remember what the Jap say - okyakusama wa kamisama .. and what is so wrong with ordering excessive food ??

    OK... You get the point, and you are right that they are doing the right thing.

    Hope you don't get fxxx in aussie or europe as they can mistakenly think you are PRC Chinese, one day.

    You still do not get the point but prefer to support these PRC Chinese tourists.

    That particular Restaurant allowed the PRC tourists to dine in the restaurant, but because they talked & misbehaved, they were moved once to a corner. Normally other guests complained.

    In that new corner, your country cousins talked and behaviour the same way, so was moved further.

    Why are you so furious ?

    Were you there to witness this particular episode described by Tupai.. ??

    How do you know they were moved because they were noisy and other guests complained ?? You just assume they were noisy. You generalise them !!

    Why am I furious ?? Because I don't expect a well-travelled people like you think stereotyping or generalization is allowed .

    I had seen such incidents involving PRC Chinese many many times in restaurants all over and I am right!

    Have you been moved around in a Restaurant?

    HHHAHHAHAH... active banters between 2 well-heeled (?) traveller forumers here.

    My guests were moved twice for reasons known only to that racist waiter. The 'suffer in silence' group o'4 includes a MD of a company with his wife. A bank manager and 1 Melbourne U student. Hardly a loud & brash diners. One of the guests told me that actually the restaurant ran foul of Oz racial villification laws...But never mind.
    Unless Naka knows something about my guests that I dont

    I decided to post this to share as i read 2 similar complaintsabout racial taunts posted by Angmo (in googlemap) when their Chinaman guest got taunted in front of all. Twice too!

    Anyway, just so you know, I have known & patronised this oldest greek restaurant in melb since the 80s! And its only past few yrs that they decided on a no-menu dinner, banquet only fixed price/diner.

    Bon apetit! *pui*

    p/s I usually will post complimentary reviews about eateries. bad ones i dont comment simply because I am not paid as a F&B consultant to improve their biz.I simply just stop going there.

    In my limited travels, I have seen such sign 'NO foreigners allowed' in small eateries in Ginza and in Saint-Valery-en-Caux... The Warning is clearly given so its up to you.
