    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

    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 ??
