not even a close to Asian Cuisine – The reviews of this place need to be updated. Chicken was dry and tough, carrotts were also, as if they had been prep'd and then frozen prior to use. Didn't find the spice in my spicy meal, it was more sweet, the spicy flavor they were trying to get cannot be achieved with "sweet Cherry Peppers" and vinegar.
The rice was overcooked to the point of being somewhat puffed. I think that this is the quality of food that gets people to wonder why anyone would eat Asian food. Lastly, Yes I was hungry an hour later, but that was because the meal that I left on my plate. Next ime I want that quality of food I will microwave something from the closeout frozen food section at the local convience store. I don't think that I need to mention at this point that I also thought that it was over priced. The Restaurant was clean and the employees were very courteous.
Good at first, but second and third time, not the charm! – We used to love this restaurant. The first few times we ate it was awesome! But after a few times, we would get it to go, we wouldn't get what we ordered, it would be cold, the lettuce for the lettuce wraps was brown and old, it was just not worth the time or expense. The food was great when they first opened they really cared about quality, but after that, it's sometimes good and sometimes not worth a gamble if you want a good lunch and you want go back and get that same lunch or dinner the same way you originally had it.
