Attitudes of Waiters & Waitresses in Thailand.


Recommended Posts

Morning all,

now maybe its just me but I have noticed a really steep decline in the level of service in many bars & restaurants here in Thailand.

no smiles, no hello how are you today,

just pay and get the hell out as quick as you can.

i have noticed this from big fancy places down to small family owned restaurants. 
it seems they cannot be bothered anymore and have forgotten how to make customers feel welcome. Just the other day i ordered a pizza and after 40 minutes of having me wait the waitress came over and said the chef had messed up the dough and would i like to order something else. When i said no just give me the bill her reaction was like it was ME who <deleted> up the pizza! 
 

Good service is essential to an establishments being a success or not. 
to be honest im sick of being treated with contempt everytime i go out for a meal or a drink. Think i will cook at home in future.


has anyone else noticed this steady decline in the attitudes of waiters and waitresses in Thailand?

Well mate you chose Thailand, they didn't choose you!

I've come to the conclusion you just bring out the worst in people

What to you expect?   Thai people doing these types of jobs have nothing, make little money, etc.   I wouldn't be happy either

No decline here on Samui. Polite and friendly where I eat and drink.

If anything - more polite and friendly with the absence of foreign tourists.

Funny because I was in samui around christmas and I thought the service was atrocious.

Well I wouldn't know but I have found that the delivery drivers for the various apps are very polite. Perhaps word is out that I tip well.

Could they ever be bothered?  Thailand is not noted for the high level of its customer service, unless you are in a 5 star hotel.  The people in bog standard hotels and restaurants are badly trained, if trained at all, paid a pittance and couldn't care less. Mind you, give me Thai customer service over the US false smiles and stupid greetings version any day.  I find US restaurant staff in Cities intensely irritating and their tip system ludicrously over generous. 

Very good customer service in Japan, pilot old bean.
