Did they change owners?
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 3:00am [Dine in]

I used to be a regular, but suddenly, the staff turned sour, and the food bland. And did the prices go up too or is it just me?

I was appauled by the service I recieved last time I went. It was fairly empty when I arrived (3 other small tables were filled). The waitresses took FOREVER to take our orders, some where chatting in the hallways, others seemed to just ignore us. After about 10 minutes of trying to waive someone over, we just walked up and gave our orders. It was very frustrating, especially for a hungry person!

The drinks I find now are a bit overpriced, and water comes in tiny cups that after asking to have refilled when food is served, is completed after a meal is finished. I think the food also used to taste better. Something is definitely wrong with their sweet and sour sauce, it was sweet and incredibly salty. Other food was normal, but smaller portioned? Atleast the side dishes were a little skimpy that day.

I'm not sure if I'll try going again, perhaps only because its open very open for a non-take out meal and theres nothing else available. I hope they step up their act!

Not bad

I read these reviews before going in (preplanned family get together) and I dreaded going, but I'd have to say, it wasn't nearly half as bad!

Tasted the same as Hons, staple chinese food.
Service could be better, but there were quite a few tables being waited on, so it was expected (I've waitered at chinese restaurants for 5 years, I know not to expect instantaneous meals!)
Chopsticks were wooden, but definitely not of the "take out" kind. Looks exactly like the chopsticks I used at home.

Guess it depends on how picky you are...
I've been to many worse restaurants that were much more overpriced
