i wish to respond to your unbelievable response to my wife's concerns after getting blisters the size of 20 cent pieces in her mouth on 28th March.Your response was rude,condescending and most unprofessional ,you obviously don't take fair criticism at all well.I can assure you the blisters were real as witnessed by me.We are both bitterly disappointment by your replies as we have eaten at your establishment at least three or four times a year for many years.
