I just returned from the most awful chinese food I've ever had. We had tried this restaurant twice before and thought it was quite good. Well, not any more. It's hard to find a non-chain restaurant in the Orlando area so we try locals as much as possible. I have been a fair and faithful reviewer on TA for years.
First, the fried noodles they served as munchies were not only stale, they tasted like rancid oil. How much trouble is it to fry up some won ton strips? The egg drop soup was very good, though. I ordered the sesame chicken which was a thick goo more syrup-like than anything else. It was hard to find the chicken because there was so much thick batter on it. They were hard, dry and caked in hard dough. Within 10 mninutes, my steak knife - yes, they gave me a steak knife for my dinner before I even started eating - would no longer cut through it. My husband ordered the Imperial Combo which was supposed to have filet mignon but had tough, over cooked skirt steak instead. This sauce, although brown, was the same sickening sweet goo the chicken was serve in. It was surrounded by unflavored, overcooked broccoli and that's it. No garnish, no flavor, except for syrup. BOTH of these dishes were on their specialty menu, too!
I love chinese food. This was awful. And the worse part is our waiter didn't care. He didn't care one bit that we were unhappy with our meal. And that is a sign of a restaurant gone bad. The food is expensive and in Apopka for goodness sake. It's definitely NOT worth the drive from anyplace. If you've been there before, rethink this restaurant.
