i ate here on my way to malden massachusets to visit relatives. i arrived to a frazzled customer asking the hostess if she could pay here, since their waiter was taking to long. not a good sign. i was seeted in a booth near the rear of the establishment, the decor was so bland it looked virtually indistinguishable from the seafood restaurant the building previously housed. the menu was quite large, and almost imeadiatly i was greeted, or more like grunted at, by a waitress. she quickly asked "do ya know what you want? i sent her away because i hadn't even had a chance to finish the appetizers section. it took her 10 minutes to come back. i ordered crispy thai red snapper fillets and lemongrass chicken, and started with miso soup and shumai. the miso soup was very good, i mean not the best i'd ever had but more than proficiant. the shumai failed miserably for shumai, heavy and doughy, not light and airy, but tthey were some of the tastiest dumplings i'd ever eaten, so i'l give them a pass. after what felt like an eternity, and was for a restaurant, i recieved my main course, the lemongrass chicken was very tasty, braised, not stir fried like most, which might dissapoint some people, but from what i hear its more authentic. the fish was crunchy, sweet, spicy, and all-around just great! i highly reccomend. it then took half an hour after i finished to recieve the bill. the price was much higher than i thought it should be. overall, expensive and abysmal service, but great food. i'd reccomend going, but only if you arent strapped for cash or in a hurry. in the end, i ended the meal how it started, desperatly trying to pay the bill up front, but now wish food in my belly and a smile on my face.
