But not for a long time. I usually try to give credit to places that are really trying so as not to give them a bad rap. I also need to be honest and appreciate honest reviews from others.
We stayed next door and saw this place and decided to walk over and give it a try. Parking lot empty, weeds growing along the curb should have been our first clue. There were a few people inside, so we ignored the prompting to walk out. The service was fine. My water glass had some food stuck to the inside (a lemon seed possibly). The Egg Flower soup had the addition of lima beans, green beans, corn, peas and square cut carrots straight out of the frozen mixed veggie bag (always a bad sign in any restaurant, and especially Asian ones), thickened with corn starch. My husband thought it ok, I did not, so perhaps a matter of taste.
Our food when it arrived was all the same color, and all deep fried. The Prawns were heavily battered and fried to a crisp with a tiny bit of hot ketchup. The Sweet and Sour Pork, also battered and fried had a decent bbq type sauce but was a bit tough & chewy. The Almond Chicken and Egg Foo Young had the same gravy type sauce covering them, same color, taste and consistency. Of course the Almond Chicken was battered and fried, and even the Egg Foo was crispy fried. Hubby said the Chow Mein was ok (I don't like the chow mein noodles so passed on that). His BBQ Short Ribs tended to be tough and chewy. Hunger drove it down, that's the only excuse I have for eating, but we both agreed it was anything but good.
