I'm in the strange position of having to defend the person who criticized our business, but the way I read this, I don't think he realized he had salad instead of fries until he got to where he was staying, and that was somewhere outside Phnom Penh--and he certainly did not know until he started eating that one of the jalapenos was missing the cream cheese.
You have a website and facebook page. In such (non extreme) circumstances, it would be better to contact the business via a message or email first to provide feedback. Don't you think that is good practice?

I read a lot of SEO blogs, and I agree with them that SOME negative public feedback is usually considered better than nothing but perfect feedback.

The main thing is that potential customers get to see how owners of said business handle complaints. I guess it looks more authentic too if it's not all perfect feedback and reviews.

I've been to Alamo Cafe with UT, and we all liked the various food we ordered, and even had some leftovers. Still need to post some pics.

Congrats again and sorry I couldn't make it to the wedding brother!!!!

Good point, Violet. Maybe it would have been more polite to contact us directly, but I still can't be very upset about posting here, since it was done politely and he posted both positive and negative comments.

Also good points about the negative feedback, GM. Wish you could have been there.
Great food for dine-in, delivery, or take-away. Call 085 540 525.

How large are the taco servings?
Three tacos--yet another oversight on my part. Looks like another menu update is due. Thanks for pointing it out.
Croquettes isn't possessive, so the apostrophe isn't required.
Crockett's Croquettes is possesive. (Unless the advert has been changed)
