We, a party of four, had our first and last experience with this chain.What took us here is we had a gift card from Christmas waiting to be used.When we got to the mall we realized we had left the gift card on the Kitchen counter back home.Not to worry, we figured we could use it on a future trip. The place was busy and we were given their beeper which allowed us to roam part of the mall for the 30min wait time. When we got called and went to the hostess counter they had us down for a party of two. This despite the hostess initially having told us that for a party of four it would take 30-45 mins to wait.They said not to worry and squeezed us in at a table.
We were served by a perky waitress who gave us the standard spiel :"we encourage sharing and serve family style". Some of the items we ordered included chicken lettuce wraps- the diced chicken was stir-fried with mushrooms, green onions and water chestnuts. Sounds good right? Wrong, because it is made in a brown sauce that makes it very salty. (their nutritional info that I checked later say Sodium level is 2090 mg). The other dish we had ordered was the large serving of hot and sour soup. This was a thick, glutinous soup, not spicy hot at all and not too sour either. Believe it or not it had the exact same sauce, judging by appearance and taste, as in the wraps. It was terribly salty (now I know. Sodium level: 7980 mg YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT). We also had ordered a Large Sichuan-Style Asparagus. That was stir-fried with ...wait for it....the same sauce. Salty again (Sodium level: 2400 mg). The final dish was LoMein with beef. Thankfully not the same sauce but salty all the same.(Sodium level: 3180). Our meal total sodium over 15,000 mg. Even if you were to divide it amongst 4 people its still twice the level recommended for an entire day.
Other than the saltiness the preparations themselves are faux-chinese, "Americanized" to a high degree. The decor is good, place is clean enough but the servers are stretched to the limit so special requests like hot sauce takes 10 mins to deliver.
Trap: The drinks are not cheap. Get it!! Make meals salty=thirst=more drinks
We will not be visiting again. The Gift card is up for sale on a website
