I purchased a coupon off wag jag- $40 worth of food for $20. Im writing this review because i could not find any before i bought my coupon.
Last night my boyfriend and i went for dinner. First impression seemed great. The restaurant appeared clean and the server was very pleasant. Also, the beer and wine menu was cheaper than most restaurants. To start, we ordered fresh rolls and chicken statay skewers. The fresh rolls had very little veg being mostly stuffed with rice and cellophane noodles. The chicken skewers were no different than something i could have made for myself. The statay sauce was similar to melted crunchy peanut butter with a little Tabasco sauce.
For our entrees, we ordered seafood stir fry and seafood pad Thai. Both dishes we have ate in many different restaurants and have never been disappointed. The seafood dishes were priced $2-$3 more than the chicken and beef dishes and most did not come with rice or noodles. My dish (chicken stir fry) was ok. The sauce was nice and not too spicy, the 3 shrimp i got were good and the rice that i ordered (at an extra cost) was also good. However, the seafood in both dishes was below average. The squid in my boyfriend’s dish was completely uneatable. It was rubbery, chewy and unappetizing on his plate. The scallops in both dishes were starchy and the mussels in my dish were very fishy. Also, the menu stated crab as part of the seafood medley. However, it was not crab! It was Alaskan Pollock fake imitation crab. Both dishes we disappointing and because we were using a coupon we picked out what we could eat and did not complain.
In short, if you do go to this restaurant do not eat the seafood unless you like paying to feel a little grossed out. The beef and chicken dishes may be better but i assume nothing you couldn’t make at home. There are so many better choices for Asian cuisine out there that are well worth your money. This meal would have cost us $55 without the coupon.
