We went to Luxe today with a party of seven. We were seated promptly and the waiters were very nice. Complimentary tea was given to us at the beginning, so we sat down and relaxed while waiting to order. We ordered several dishes to share and the dishes came one after another. The first dish that came was pork, and I am a vegetarian, but I felt that since I am reviewing, I should try it. The pork was delicious and was gone pretty quickly. After the pork game the prawns with black beans and vegetables. What the menu should have said was vegetables with prawns and black beans because there was a mountain of veggies with some prawns and a little beans. The vegetables were great. The sauce tasted really good and it was very enjoyable. We ordered the prawns stir-fried instead of deep-fried and I regret it. Although, they were good, the prawns would have tasted better deep fried. When I first saw the dish, I thought the prawns were cauliflower because of the shape. I am a non-strict vegetarian, so I took place in the fish eating. After, the prawns, a dish came with vegetables, squid, and shrimp, scallops. The shrimp was good, the squid was okay, and I don't even think the scallops were there. The vegetables were different types from the ones in the previous dish, so they tasted different. After, the seafood dish, we had sweet and sour pork. It was good even though I only had one piece because I am a vegetarian. During all this food, the waiters were really nice. We seemed to have three waiters all focused on our table. They were great and they told jokes. Anyway, we finished off the dinner with chowmein, rice, and a hot and sour soup for myself. The soup was loaded with shrimp and all kinds of things, but the broth tasted funny so I only took a couple of bites. We ordered the chowmein crunchy and that was a mistake because nobody liked it. The rice was so good though because it had egg and vegetables and it was so fresh. All the stuff that I just said was basically our dinner
After the dinner, the waiter surprised me by giving me some cookies and deserts with a birthday candle in it. After all it was my birthday, so I blew out my candle graciously and ate the cookies with some of the complimentary tea. I was very surprised at the service and ambiance. It is a hole in the wall of the outside but beutiful on the inside. The service was great too. Overall, I liked parts of this dinner and didn't like parts. Some dishes were 4/5 and some were 2/5. Also, there was some pretty weird things on the menu like the shark fin soup which I was not daring enough to try. So, in the end, I would reccomend this restaurant to people who are willing to spend money on things that they are not sure that they will like. I liked this restaurant because it was SUPER FRESH and very authentic. Luxe has to be the freshest chinese food that I have ever tasted.
