Yummy & Abundant! – The food here is very good. They give you hot tea right away. The Service is EXCELLENT! No wonder they've been in business so long. My only issue is the deep fried Spring Rolls, I anticipated all Spring Rolls are fresh and wrapped in the delicate white wrapping and unfried. I've never had them fried, so despite the shock of that one thing - they were still tasty in their own way, especially with the dipping sauce that comes with them. The portions here are LARGE so be prepared for that. (ie; don't order appetizers, you won't need 'em! :-) ..)
Below expectations – The restaurant looks nice but their food left much to be desired. The food was plain and some was even over-fried. We won't be going back.
ambient atmosphere, lots of space, not crowded, food is fancy-looking but not really what you order – I ordered the pineapple chicken, which i've had many times before. at first I noticed the chicken was the same that they used at the Chinese place across the street which I didn't really care for, (both the chinese place across the street and the chicken) It tasted like chicken mcnuggets, seriously, maybe they go through the same company as McDonalds, I don't know, the second impression I got from my Entree was to question why pineapple chicken was covered with green peppers and red peppers and not pineapple, it did however have a sprinkling of pineapple on the top, probably I/4 cup. The sauce on it was black, not soy sauce, but definetly not pineapple either, all in all it was confusing. My girlfriend ordered the combo of Lemon Chicken, prawns, pork fried rice and egg roll, with egg flower soup. She said the Lemon Chicken didn't taste very lemony. the prawns were average, I tried the pork fried rice and would give it a 7 out of ten, it was pretty good, but not great. The eggroll, I could tell before I even tasted it, just from sight and smell, was going to be bad. To my suprise it wasn't totally disgusting, and had a good initial taste but after it lingered in my mouth I had to reach for my water and drown it out.
