My friend and I decided to try the new Asian Restaurant inside Pechanga Casino yesterday for lunch. . The server gave us our menus, which we had several questions for her. She seemed to have no idea how to explain the contents and ingredients without trouble. We finally decided what to order and then she comes up with all the specials. Then again, that posed more questions for her that she had trouble answering. So we finally decided on the Pho soup to share( since it is a large serving) with 2 extra sides of rice, The broth of the soup was very tasty, however the meat was stringy and transparent, which made it seem very unappetizing to look at. We then asked the server to see a dessert menu....she told us that they didn't have one, but their desserts were coconut cheesecake and a lemongrass cream brew-lee!! (aka creme Brulee) So we just said ok, thank you and she left. A few minutes later she came back with the creme brulee and said that we will love it. We never told her that we wanted to order it, she just assumed it. So, since My friend and I love creme brulee, we just decided to try it. Unfortunately this particular flavor was awful.....it tasted like hay!! I told the server that we both did not like it and that she will need to remove it from our bill, which she did. But right after that, she never looked at us or spoke to us, she grabbed our bill and started counting and fanning out the money to see how much we paid her. When we already told her that we need no change. Kinda rude! Also, while we were still eating, the server kept on coming by and removing our dishes while it was clear that we were still finishing our plates. Again, rude! As we were leaving , she never said another word to us nor did she even glance our way. We honestly do think that even though this is a Asian restaurant, they need some English speaking servers to accommodate the English speaking community. We will never come back here again..........food for thought! The casino however, is always fun, and we do love coming here for the shows, events and to gamble. There are plenty of other restaurants in the casino. We do like their buffet on Sunday. And the restaurant behind the Casino at the golf course is a very nice place as well.....beautiful atmosphere and great service and food.

Well the new and imprived buffet was really not much better than the old buffet. The pricing has gone way up and unless you are a very BIG eater the price is not worth it at all!!!
