Dialogue between me and the staff of Chicken bite

Review: Delivery guy came promptly and was waiting downstairs in an SUV. Was a Chinese international student that said in total there were 6 Chinese international students doing delivery for the Korean boss of the restaurant and most of the takeaway business is coming through WeChat. Why WeChat? Because it’s free and all Chinese people use WeChat (and that Facebook isn’t acessible in China). Mentioned that some advertising might be done through blogs. The food was hot but pretty ordinary in terms of flavour and it wasn’t a huge portion size considering the price, however it was enough to feed two not-s0-hungry guys adequately.
