I went here the other day with my boyfriend and we were both incredibly underwhelmed. As soon as we opened the door I noticed that the floor was gross looking and the doorway had grime all in the cracks. We went up to order and then sat down. Everything is served on styrofoam, which I guess is part of the "casual" theme and to save money.
I had ordered an egg roll and it came out quickly but it was very hard and greasy. It was so greasy that there was an actual puddle of dark brown grease in the paper holder it was in and I couldn't finish eating it.
My boyfriend and I both ordered the sesame chicken and when it came out it smelled, tasted and looked weird. I tried my best to eat as much as I could but it didn't taste good at all and many parts were small and chewy or hard. My boyfriend took about two bites of his and then quit because it smelled so bad.
I also ordered Egg Drop Soup, and they forgot to bring it out to me. It had been sitting on the counter for about 20 minutes and they forgot to give it to me. It was alright in terms of taste but it had little flecks of black stuff in it which was unsettling.
Overall, we had a horrible experience. We will never eat there again. After talking to some friends about it they also said that they have eaten here before and it was disgusting.
We payed $27 for a horrible meal. Such a waste.
Delicious Asian Food – My family eats here every time we visit Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. The lunch specials are really cheap. I consider their food to be as tasty as the restaurants in Houston's Chinatown. We usually order the Pad Thai noodles, sesame beef, and kung pao chicken (served spicy). Despite having a constant flow of carry-out traffic, there are plenty of parking spaces. Sometimes restaurant food (both Asian and American cuisine) make me sleepy but this place doesn't seem to affect me after I eat. That's always good if you're returning to work after lunch.
