I’ve read too many bad comments about Ikabud’s staff not knowing the professional way a waiting staff should do and treat their customers, thus, mom & I tried their service yesterday and so far, so good. In fact, they even saved my day!
We were there at about 5pm and served our orders of Grilled Porkchop (at Php79) on a sizzling plate and fresh buko juices still in a shell (Php65).
Right after we were done with our meals, which I enjoyed opposing to the comments I have read on Facebook, we left the place and went around the mall for some errands. Reached home at about 8pm and realized that my phone was missing in my bag! Darn! I left it in Ikabud! I was sure ‘coz I don’t remember taking it out after we left the place. So I called my number and tried my luck! After 3 tries, a lady finally answered saying she’s from Ikabud. So I told her that I left my Samsung Galaxy Note there. I went back to their restaurant right away.
While I was entering the restaurant, the Head Waiter seemed to remember my face and started asking me questions. I told him quickly that I left my phone on the table where we had our meals. I gave him the information that would convince him that yes, it is my phone. He smiled and apologized for asking too many questions, saying he’s just making sure that the phone won’t go to the wrong person.
With such short conversation, I was able to get the names and met the two ladies who saved my phone and day, namely Lydia, who saw the phone on the table and Lisa, the cashier, who kept it and answered my call. Unfortunately, I was not able to take photos of them as they were busy with the diners.
I guess I was also lucky that no one yet sat on that same table, otherwise my phone would have gone missing by now.
To you ladies, thanks for such good deed! I’ll be back, I promise!
