We went to Fantastic for Mother's Day. Before the renovations, you were able to order two dishes, which came with a "bonus" small dish, whether it be half a small chicken, or soup. We've always gotten good service there.
After renos, the two dish thing was no longer. It was a minimum "four dishes, and they throw in a small bonus dish". Fine...we thought what better way to take advantage of this by going on Mother's Day. Besides...more family members were able to attend.
I made the reservations a week before Mother's Day.
When we got there, we were greeted by the owner, as well as one of the managers.
When we sat down, we were given the menus. My mom had already decided which four dishes she wanted to order. When we looked at the menu, alas! No four dishes. They had "set menus" starting at $88, which consisted of six dishes.
The cold plate was definately cold....the pork hock was frozen! The sweet and sour ribs were all fat, and a couple of the other dishes were bland.
When it came time for dessert, the waitress asked if we wanted any. We asked what it was, and she said it was red bean soup. (typical). As we have been previous LOYAL customers, we asked if there was any mango pudding. She said no. Meanwhile, another waiter was serving mango pudding to the table next to us!
Needless to say, it will be a long while before we go to Fantastic again. Unfortunately losing us as customers will not affect their business, as they always are busy.
