Restaurants should have working air conditioners

She did have a fan in the corner of the room, but it didn’t do much to beat the heat

I love going out to eat, and my favorite food is Thai. When I eat Thai food, I feel like I am eating something that is not only delicious but healthy as well. I have a favorite Thai restaurant that I frequently visit here in town. It is a small restaurant owned by a kind lady who prepares most of the food. She enjoys interacting with her patrons, and she makes sure our food is cooked to perfection. It is the one part of the experience that keeps me going back. Last Summer, I visited the restaurant and as soon as I walked in, I could tell there was no air conditioning. It was unbearable on the inside to the point where I almost left without ordering food. I asked the lovely owner about the A/C, and she mentioned that it went out earlier in the day, and the HVAC technician wouldn’t be able to fix it until the next business day. This could be bad for business because it would be quite difficult to enjoy a meal in a restaurant that feels like a sauna. She did have a fan in the corner of the room, but it didn’t do much to beat the heat. I kindly asked the owner to pack my food to go because after sitting for about 10 minutes with no air conditioning, I couldn’t take much more. She suggested eating outside at a small table in front of the restaurant, but the temperature outside was about 90 degrees, so I politely declined her offer, and instead I enjoyed my food in the comfort of my home. Having a working air conditioner is an essential part of keeping patrons comfortable when they are enjoying their meals in a restaurant.
