Is this joint still in business or did it go belly up?

I see some of you are still struggling to understand that taste is subjective. You should not point a finger and accuse each other of inferiority in taste. It is nonsensical. I have seen Frenchmen eat their snails and believe me it's not a sight for the faint of heart among us Zambians. But them French think snails are exquisite cuisine. Who are you to say the French are inferior because they eat snails?

I remember the first time I eat a mouse in front of my white friend. We call them white but they are really sorta pink. But that day his face turned white like a sheet of paper. He was about to faint, seeing me eat that mouse head first and crunching the bones and hair all in one munching motion. The next time I saw him, he refused to believe that what he had seen was real. He preferred to think that he had had a bad dream about me eating that mouse. He said if he starts to believe that I had eaten that mouse, what is he going to believe next? That witches can fly?

You see? People's tastes are different. You should never judge a man by what he likes to eat.

If you ask me, the Rogue Trader and Madam Madea do not agree on the definition of good food.

The service is pathetic one has to plead for a bill. Food is lousy! Can't wait for Spur to open.

Not guilty, ba Rogue. You are a real gentleman. It's just that some of us aren't. when we walk into a restaurant, we are at a point when our stomach is growling for food. We can't wait another minute.

To my fellow hungry men of questionable gentility, I suggest you do as I do. Bring something to munch on. I usually throw a handful of roasted dry maize in my pocket so I don't have to harass the waiters about my food being late. You see.

During my visits to Lusaka, I have been to Mike's kitchen and been quite impressed by the quality of their food and service. It takes time to receive one's food but certainly not an hour. To be honest, I'd be quite worried if a well done leg of lamb, rump steak or spareribs were served within 10 to 15 minutes.

I think Mike Kitchen's serving time is favourably comparable to other restaurants of similar standard. Am I guilty of accepting 'inferior service'?

pork is equal to pig
a pig for its food will was drill its nose into the ground sniffing and looking for food.
so porking in this case is refairs to the behaviour of involving yourself in other peoples business. its not a kind work, so you better not use it , reason

it seems you are someone who is content with going through life like a random molecule. what might be okay for is certainly not good at for 99 per cent of the contributors and that puts you in the minority in this case. dont champion mediocrity please sweets okay?

I feel your pain all of you who've had sad experiences at Mike's kitchen. I guess I haven't been noticing their alleged bad service because I have been there countless times and I generally have never had any bad experience with them.Honestly.This is not to say they are perfect and I know there's always room for improvement but Mike's Kitchen happens to be one of my favourite eating places in Lusaka.Maybe I never notice their delays in bringing the food because I always start my dinning with some Castle first and like tired zambian posted last year, I also fail to finnish their big portions most times. Mike's Kitchen is OK

I was Ice Cream at Mike's Kitchen. Everything went well until I bit into a fingernail. Geezus! I was ruined for the entire day. Giving me the ice cream for free did not make anything better. I did not get an apology from the head chef or manager or owner. They all seemed to have been hiding somewhere in the back.

Tired Zambian

I think you are one of those fortunate Zambians who is blessed with low standards and mediocre expectations. You don't ask for extravagancy. You don't ask for the best. You don't sweat the small crap. Cheap and shoddy is a pleasure to you. You are very lucky.

Not like that gang leader of 25 ladies who posted here once demanding they be treated like queens by a restaurants. Those 25 ladies will be miserable for the rest of their lives.

You one the other hand, life will always smile at you because no service can be too crappy for you. You take anything dished to you with a smile and a positive attitude. Forget food critiquing. Consider motivational speaking. To teach people how to be happy in life. I am serious, no bull s***

I think it must be times...i have been there several times and the food was excellent. sometimes the waiters were too busy talking amongst themselves but then, where else do you not find this? i eat out a lot, i could even be a food critic!!! but i can say that mike's kitchen is still operating ok. i even get the waiter asking me if the meal was to my satisfaction, and yes even though some foods take longer to prepare than others, at all times the portions were too big for me to finish on my own. i'll definetely go there again!

i bet the dodos are relatives of the owner. That is why they haven't been fired. Wako ni wako is alive and well in Zambia

Interestingly, Mike's Kitchen is a "tale of two service levels" There are two BRILLIANT waiters and a bunch of Dodos! The two guys make you feel like royalty and know the meaning of the word "waiter" - they wait on you and are sharp enough to make suggestions regarding the menu. The rest are utterly useless! I've had the best and worst of both worlds - first couple of visits; sheer bliss. Last couple of times; don't ask. Wouldn't go back there again if it wasn't for the kids demanding regular visits. Mike's Kitchen needs to hire just a couple more guys as good as their two high-flying waiters; heck they can afford it with all the business that they have coming their way!
