Okay... since the new ownership took over in August we've tried them a couple of times... once for Chinese and once for sushi. Not impressed at all. The Chinese food was similar to the original Chef Orient, but the fried rice wasn't as good and neither were the spring rolls. Found everything to be a little too greasy. Not what I expected, especially considering the prices were considerably higher. Time for us to try some of the other places in the area to get our fix of Chinese, I guess.
We've always ordered sushi from them for New Year's Eve, and tonight was no different. Dropped off our typed up order around 1 p.m. for a 6 p.m. pickup. The first disappointment was being told they don't do the gyoza appetizer at 6.... they'd do it for me at 1, but not later. It's just a fried dumpling! What's the problem at 6?? Sushi order was ready for pickup at the appointed time. Got it home and found they had given me an order of maguro (tuna) which I didn't order. Thought that maybe, just MAYBE it was a complimentary thing since they wouldn't do the gyoza. Nope. The charge for $5.50 was right there on the receipt. Overall, the fish was very fresh and tasty, but the maki rolls didn't hold together very well. Quite conservative with the roe on the rolls, too. A little disappointing, since we've always enjoyed sushi from Samba, their parent, just down Route 9.
