gold street in FiDi - terrible

hi all, just a note about how BAD this place is; sounds promising in that it's a 24-hour place, and we ordered a late night meal delivered to our office; you'll find that the fact its delivery has nothing to do with how bad it was.

we ordered a couple turkeyburgers and hamburgers, a breakfast egg platter, an appetizer "pu-pu" platter and one of my co-workers ordered the "bigeye fish tacos" and a piece of sashimi. now, the place bills itself as a diner but also has an extensive sushi menu but my expectations wouldn't be high as to the sashimi and lo and behold, the salmon sashimi was actually a piece of nigiri, limp and dry, and just a terrible piece of fish for $4. the tacos on the other hand? what a joke!

literally, it was 4 taco rounds, like taco chips, 2.5" diameter, and curved upwards to hold the filling, which was some lettuce, some guac, some diced tomatoes, and what looked like canned tuna, in 1/2" dice. this was delivered in a plastic container and jostled about so basically, it was like tunafish nachos. but literally, 4 taco chips. the "bigeye" tuna was nowhere to be found, instead, maybe 8 or 9 mashed cubes of tuna (no more than an ounce, I'd say), and that, for $10.50? granted it was in the small plates area of the menu, but it's value couldn't have been more than $5. if we had ordered it in the restaurant, it probaly wouldn't have come all jumbled but still, ridiculous. needless to say, the rest of us couldn't stop laughing for at least 15 minutes, offering shreds of lettuce to my co-worker as "salad" for his entree.

the rest of the food was very generic and boring, not worth writing about. well, except the "golden plate special" which had some bad dumplings, some bad calamari, some bad wings, and one more bad fried thing (can't remember the last one).

needless to say, we will never order from there again.
