Old Spaghetti Factory14200 Entertainment Blvd, #110, Richmond
Ugh...
Submitted Tuesday, October 28, 2008 - 11:27pm [Dine in]

This is a very average restaurant, until the food comes. If you normally buy TV dinners, you may wish to stay at home and buy another one. Or go to McDonald's. I have never had worse spaghetti. To be fair, I've only been here twice, but I don't want to go back. It seems to leave everyone with indigestion...

Service was good, though. And yes, it's cheap, but so's McDonald's. And if you paid $35 for a meal and a drink here, man you got ripped off...

Great place

First of all, what do you expect from an all you can eat restaurant?

You can expect the rolls to sometimes be pre-made; you can expect your server to forget items or bring you too few, as though they don't expect you to finish what you ordered; and you can expect to have a lengthy meal as, let's face it, as an AYCE customer you're very demanding on the server's time.

This is all true about Shabusen, because it's true of virtually every AYCE sushi restaurant. However, as long as you're not in a hurry (and why would you be eating AYCE then anyway?) and as long as you know how to order, it's an incredible restaurant.

I've been here a couple times, and the Korean BBQ is definitely what keeps me coming back. Both times I've filled up on sashimi, Korean BBQ, and a mixture of some of the more interesting items like motoyaki. Don't come here if you're the type of person who defines sushi as calafornia rolls- you won't get your money's worth, but I definitely ate close to $40 both times in sashimi alone.

Oh, and one more thing- make sure you try one of the coffee/green tea jellos. Yep. Coffee and green tea. But only order ONE! Haha, it's really... interesting. My table ordered 15 (one for everyone) and, well, let's just say that the one person who liked it definitely had enough.

Awesome restaurant

I've been here numerous times, and the food's always fantastic. You get served by a server who actually seems human, which is a nice change. I make a point of ordering something new every time I go, as the menu is fairly substantial; I've never been disappointed with an item, even when I had no idea what it was.

If you didn't like it, I don't know what you expected, but you got a high quality meal.

And if you don't even bother to read the entertainment coupons, well, you shouldn't bother to complain about them either.

Better now?

I've just started working here as a food expeditor, (half a step up from a hostess) so there's a chance that I'm pretty biased. But I worked at McDonalds at one point, and I was honest then- if customers asked, I would tell them that I actually didn't eat there, because it was pretty gross.

The servers are polite, intelligent, respectful, hardworking, and yes, human. The managers are fantastic, particularly Matt, the night manager.

The restaurant has astounded me with its integrity from the start- it doesn't matter who you are or how rude you've been- all the food comes out clean and top quality all the time.

We've got a "house of yes" policy which means that if there's any reasonable request you have, we'll say yes to it right away and then figure out a way to make it happen. I've seen people literally describe a meal that doesn't exist in any shape or form on the menu, and we've given it to them- a task that sucks for both the server who's got to write it down and figure out a way of explaining it to the kitchen, and the chef who's got to figure out a way to bring it up to Cactus Club's standard.

The quality of the ingredients is incredible- they seem to use top notch everything, whether that means using beef that's always fresh and never been frozen, or stocking just enough meat and vegetables for 1-3 days at a time. They make all of their sauces in the back of the restaurant, and they've got a million different drinks, including 12 beers on tap and wine bottles ranging from $20 to $175.

If you get a chance, try the jambalaya rice bowl- so good, especially if you substitute the creme fresh for spicy yogurt. And the yam fries are awesome.

A lot of reviews have had some bad things to say about this restaurant, and for all I know, the restaurant might have been as bad as they said when they said it. But if that's the case, it's definitely picked up a lot in the last couple months.

There's a reason why this place is ridiculously packed every friday and saturday, not to mention a lot of wednesdays and thursdays...

Best AYCE in Richmond
Submitted Tuesday, October 21, 2008 - 4:59pm [Dine in]

The food's great, the selection's great, the price is great, and the service is awesome. It's the kind of place where once you open your chopsticks, the wrapper is taken away within a minute without you noticing. All the servers are friendly and speak english, which is a huge plus. Eating AYCE anywhere else in Richmond is a mistake.
