We arrived on a Tuesday at around 11:45AM and were the first patrons though 4-5 tables were occupied by the time we exited. My wife and I each ordered a lunch special that included a choice of soup (miso, hot & sour or wonton), rice (white, brown or vegetable fried) and an entrée. We each chose the miso soup which neither of us enjoyed though I have never reference point to compare to. For an entrée my wife selected off the “Noodle It” section of the menu choosing Tokyo bbq with pork with rice noodles. The dish was tasty but there was very little pork or vegetables.
I chose the yellow curry sauce which is a new menu item with chicken. It was sautéed with pineapple, green pepper, tomato, onion and baby corn and accompanied by brown rice. It was listed as being spicy, but was actually pretty mild. There was good amount of vegetables and chicken.
Service throughout was very good. I had a $20 gift certificate purchased from SaveNowCt which I tendered against a bill of $19.57. Our waitress returned the gift certificate would not be accepted because we failed to spend the face value. There is no minimum spending requirement on the certificate and 2 other restaurants in similar situations chose to accept certificates while pocketing the difference. For a relatively new restaurant struggling to attract new customers, I feel the owner’s policy is ill conceived.
Overall, our meal was below average.
