Gabose Korean & Japanese Restaurant Unlawful 18% Gratuity and Discrimination Against Gays Lauderhill, Florida
*General Comment: The report is fake.
*General Comment: I have many questions for you!!!
*General Comment: Tipping is a rip off
The owner approached our table and says "I took the liberty of adding the gratuity on to your bill because the last time you were here you spent $120 and left only a $4 tip". Last I knew tips were earned, not automatic, and they are given based on the quality of service received (which on the night we left a $4 tip was poor at best). I said "oh, so now you get to tell the customers how much tip we have to pay regardless of your service?" and he says "Yes, I make all the rules, I am the owner". I told him that with an attitude like the one he has, he would never see me in his establishment again and proceeded to walk out the door.
The owner then took my partner (who is Korean) aside as I walked out the door, and proceeded to degrade myself and her in front of the customers in the restaurant (in both English and Korean). He stated out loud that we were rude lesbians, and how he dislikes gay people dining in his restaurant which he finds offensive amongst other hateful remarks. He told her that if we ever showed our face back at his restaurant that he would call the police. Had we been displaying affection or anything else to elicit this behavior from the owner, perhaps his opinions would be warranted, however we did nothing of the sort. This was the first time we've been singled out and harassed in a restaurant for being gay, let alone after eating food I didn't care much for but likewise didn't make a single complaint about. In other restaurants I have been given VIP cards for 50% off drinks for how polite I am even when dis-satisfied, and here I show no dis-satisfaction and I am treated like trash.
For anyone gay, or who simply has respect for themselves, stay away from Gabose. We initially started eating here because my wife liked their food, but after eating a few times the quality was less and less and she liked it less and less. We have found a much better Korean restaurant across the street called Manna. Friendly service, good prices, nice to gays, and no shady or illegal business practices. BEWARE of GABOSE.
