    They do not ask you how spicy you want the food. Explicitly tell them. Also, I tried 2 dishes; both sauces were too sweet.

    No separate checks. Forgot this used to be Wicked Smile--I ate there just once, too. Ridiculous for a group of two couples to have to be fumbling with exchanging cash in the 21st century.
