Restaurant details
Reviewed December 20, 2012

This strip mall restaurant in Beaverton is a real surprise. The food is good and the options are endless. The menu has many items you'd find in China, but seldom find in Portland. If you like Chinese food and want to try something unusual, give Spicy World a try.

The service was very good and the servers were friendly. Ambience. . .not so much.

We went to Spicy World to try them out for a Saturday lunch after my wife said that she and her coworkers had an "okay" experience dining there for lunch during the weekday.

This was a major disappointment. The restaurant was 3/4 to 1/2 empty during our visit, but we had to ask for almost EVERYTHING. Had to beckon a waiter to place our order. Had to beckon a waiter to get boxes for our leftover. Had to ask for our check.

The prices were higher than comparable Chinese restaurants in the area for comparable staples, like kung pao chicken and a mixed stir-fried vegetable (mostly cabbage) entrees. Our kung pao chicken arrived first--but no rice--so it sat mostly untouched until the rest of our order arrived, and finally two bowls of rice.

The food quality was "okay". The kung pao chicken was a bit sweet for my expectation,

No one came to check to see if we had any other expectations. After waiting for longer than I expected, I had to beckon a waiter for boxes, then beckoning a waiter to get our check.

When I paid at the register, the person there didn't ask how our meal was.

Overall, we left with the impression that the staff just didn't care whether we were happy or not. That's the exception to what we've experienced at other restaurants. No thank you, we're not coming back.
