Some people might be scared away by its more than casual (and little bit messy) appearance. It also takes a lot longer for them to cook the food than other restaurants especially during busy lunch hours. However, they also have very special Chinese food that cannot be found elsewhere, such as oysters pancakes, medicinal herbal teas, and special types of rice noodle dishes.
Sadly, the old couple will be closing the restaurant after tomorrow (October 12) because the wife has a scheduled eye surgery and they are taking the chance to retire altogether. I am truly grateful for the times I have eaten here and there food will surely be missed. I hope there will be a good restaurant to replace the Rainbow Cafe soon.
