Quote:Thread title should now be changed to “Mike’s Pizza Kitchen.”
Good suggestion, thread title changedNovember 14, 2012 at 4:10 am #23535
Possibly the most eloquent rebuttal I’ve ever read.
I’ll be grabbing a Pizza in due course.
But when are you going to expand your delivery zone!!!???

Again, thank you Charlie. I picture you with a colossal-connected-console with a massive multi-monitor display which houses the world’s largest collection of animated .gif’s.
Thanks Chris. As for the Fries…they’re dead for now. They were never profitable and with our space being even more limited now they were the obvious choice to get the axe.
And thanks Brendan. Hope to see you soon, don’t forget your earplugs. As for the delivery range, we’re already going farther than we should be, D=r/t. (At least until we all have Jetpacks.) However, we do try to be pretty accommodating, we’ve met people at coffee shops, bars and subway stops in our delivery range if you can’t make it all the way to our place.November 15, 2012 at 6:40 pm #23587Quote:Again, thank you Charlie.

I boldly dream of a new world of communication where we need not speak and everything can be communicated with Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Saved By the Bell animated gif’s. There can be pizza, too.November 16, 2012 at 3:02 am #23598
At first I was like “hmm this may not be the best approach to reply” but then I was like “go Mike!!!”November 16, 2012 at 10:16 am #23631
Took me a while to get here, but I finally saw this thread. I cosign the pizza and the job done by Mikes staff of navigating the tricky terrain of Chinese addresses conveyed by non-Chinese speaking foreigners.
Matter of fact, Im going to an AmCham meeting tonight, and we will be eating some Mikes pizza at the meeting!November 19, 2012 at 8:44 am #23712
And big props to Vincent on his map. Loved the use of perspective.November 19, 2012 at 8:46 am #23713
I missed something? someone can help me for “the point of situation” or maybe it’s better that i read all thread? …maybe it’s better… 😉November 19, 2012 at 9:07 am #23722
I’m an italian people and like cook&eat (like many italians), now I’m writing with a cup of moka coffee… so I’m not a chef but in Italy we say – The customer is always right – some words for explain that you must take care about positive/negative feedback of people.
About food portions you must find a good compromise quality/price for your restaurant “standards”…for example in a 5 stars restaurant you can find small portions/dream taste/expensive price… but for me in Chengdu, it’s better normal portions/new taste/normal price.
I never tried any italian restaurant in CD, but is not important which is better… every cooker have different style but you must take care about make happy your customer! isn’t easy but not impossible… is a tradition, that chef go out from the kitchen for speak with customer! like this you can understand how improve your experience…
I repeat that I’m not a chef, but when I’ll have money (if I go on like this, never 😉 I want open a little bar with coffee, wine/grappa and some italian food… and share my “hometown taste” with friends…
See you, “Buon appetito!”November 20, 2012 at 7:22 am #23759
Ahahahah, Mike! I must meet you and try your pizza! I hope your working days not always like monday! and after I’ll try Pizza Mandolino for to be “equal”! 😉November 20, 2012 at 7:43 am #23761
When I went to Mike’s (twice so far) there was no berating of employees at all only great ‘cheat day’ pizza.
I think it’s always best and fair to assume an exception if you experience something that irritates you, one time or perhaps carefully raise your concern with the restaurant owner before posting it on the intertubes.
On the other hand this is the modern world we live in and I can only imagine how tough it must be to open a food business which is under such tremendous scrutiny from day one with all the bitchy Yelpers out there and competitors disguising as guests writing negative reviews (which is why I mostly don’t trust reviews on the internet by the way).
Speaking of Yelp.

Mike, today I called you and JinJiang district is a zone out of delivery, please specify this on your website or expand your delivery zone 😉December 13, 2013 at 6:48 pm #37817
Is Pizza Mandolino closed? I googled it, got this 3 yr old discussion, then checked out the TripAdvisor sight and it said the place was closed.August 28, 2015 at 10:48 am #47973
Just changed the name, if I remember good in “La Vita”…
I suggest you Bucciano in Poly centerAugust 28, 2015 at 10:55 am #47974

Yes, it’s closed. Been closed for a while now. Interesting to look back on this thread after a few years. Mike has conquered all.August 28, 2015 at 3:12 pm #47979
Re: pizza: just noticed a new pizza place in Yulin on Fang Cao Jie called Pizza4U. Google reveals it to be an international pizza chain. I’d never heard of it but will give it a shot tonight. While I’ve had my issues with Mike, he does make a mean pizza and he’s only 5 mins (cab) away, so this new joint better be pretty special to compete…August 28, 2015 at 4:09 pm #47981
Yeah, I noticed it this weekend as well. Got myself a delivery menu… one of these nights, it’s on! Full review coming soonAugust 31, 2015 at 2:20 pm #48012
@dan: I hit this place a few nights ago. Kinda nasty, greasy Pizza Hut style pizza. Ok in a pinch as a guilty pleasure, but as soon as it was finished i had some personal recriminations: “why?! Why?!August 31, 2015 at 3:49 pm #48016

Bahahaha thanks, it might take a moment of serious desperation to get me to go for one of their pizzas now. But that’s not to say it’s totally off my radar… who doesn’t like a good bit of self-loathing?August 31, 2015 at 4:03 pm #48017
