nice pinnapple rice – went there once and i actually like this place. being a very critical person on Asian food, i am super selective on which oriental restaurant i dine in. a friend took me there once and i was pleasantly surprised. not many people that night, but the food was decent. neither overly greasy or salty. worth to give it a try!
One of the best Chinese around – went there last night for dinner with my girlfriend, i had the zheng spicy chicken, i guess its the same as that general whatever chicken, but it was one of the BEST i've had, white meat chicken, and actually chicken not like the places where youll get 80% breading and 20% meat. overall it was a great experience, but i have to say, service isn't up there, hopefully it will be better when i go back next time.
Slow service , food's not so great either – Went on regular day lunch with 3 of my buddies. It took them 30-40 mins to bring our food after taking the order. The food was not so great either, we had asked for extra spicy which they sought of overlooked. Service was very lax, no refills of drinks, they didnt even notice that we had got done and were wiating for the check. Ultimately we just got up and walked to the counter to pay our tab.
AWESOME SUSHIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!! – I was there for their sushi happy hour, and mannnn that was good!!!!!!!!!!!!! you get half of of your sushi and sashimi, which i am in love with. good deal, really good atmosphere, definitely going back for more sushi. oh ya, forgot, its on tuesdays through thursdays from 5 ta 6.
HORRIBLE FOOD, SERVICE, ETC? – We arrived at the restaurant @ 11:50 and didn?t get our food till 12:30. My lunch companion?s food was ice cold and mine was not at all spicy as I requested. Their website promised upscale, but the restaurant fails to deliver based on service- the truly upscale places show that they want your business.
The staff seemed to be in a race to see who could spend the least time with you, even passing by the table and not refilling drinks or asking if everything was okay.
DON'T GO...head down the street to Pei Wei...great food, always hot and spicy...
Horrible customer service – It took 30 minutes to get my food on 6/18 at lunch time and when we did receive it, my foods was cold. I asked them to remake it. The gave me the same food reheated but told me it was remade. At no point did they try to make us feel better. Their excuse was they were busy. We saw others receive there food very promptly.
Great Asian Food – This restaurant has a variety of different asian foods. I had the singapore noodles, it was great! The service was also excellent!
very bad experience..will never go there............. – I went there with my family on 05/30 and there is a big sign on the door saying "Since 05/05/07, we do not accept restaurant dot com coupons". So, i went in and showed them my restuaurant dot com's gift certificate bought and printed on 05/27/07. Afer few requests and talking to 2 servers, I finally managed to talk to manager/owner of the restaurant. All the staff was very rude and refused to take my $25 gift certificate. They started blaming restaurant dot com and accused them of stealing their name, logo and menu to put it on restaurant dot com's website. So, after 25 minutes of conversation I left disappointed.....
Great food and service – Location is great for us but maybe hard to find if your not looking for it. IN the shopping center next to Chick-Fil-A and Earthfare Grocery Store.
Great service. Good menu and good food.
Sushi was fresh
Atmosphere is classy and during evening hours romantic.
Get the same food elsewhere with better service – I tried the new TQ Zheng's Asian Bistro at 3 PM... a time when no one else was in the restaurant. You would think that would be a recipe for excellent service, but like their other recipes, it lacked inspiration.
The decor was what you would expect from PF Chang's (which may have inspired their name?) and made for a fairly upscale yet casual atmosphere. Their website promised upscale, but the restaurant fails to deliver based on service- the truly upscale places show that they want your business.
At T.Q. Zheng's, the food arrived with onions after I specifically requested none, but was still good. The spice level was minimum, which I thought was a disappointment for a dish with a "hot" icon next to it on the menu. However, it turned out to be a blessing for the 10 minutes I tried and failed to get the attention of my waitress for a refill. My husband's glass was never refilled, even when she finally came for my refill. Again, with no other customers, I was wondering what the problem was. The staff seemed to be in a race to see who could spend the least time with you. There was none of the "everything OK here?" type inquiries that most restaurants will mandate from their staff.
The food was good, but so similar to what you can get at PF Chang's, Pei Wei, the now-closed Bamboo Club (which was several levels above TQ's) I wonder how much longer they'll be around. They could get away with the "upscale generic" food if they offered truly good service. Turning the bland elevator music down would help a little, too.
