Oriental Garden: mediocre food, will not return

Simon | Oct 2, 2005 01:19 AM

After reading good reviews here and elsewhere, went to Oriental Garden tonight: my gf and i were both very disappointed...

-- dried scallop and leek soup: a small cup containing half a teaspoon of dried scallop shreds in a thick cornstarchy brown broth...bland...for 6.50, a complete ripoff...

-- fried oysters: the tastiest thing...huge oysters...fairly light batter...yet, at 14 dollars for six fried oysters, you're almost paying Balthazar raw oyster prices...

-- baby bok choy: fine...(11 bucks)

-- steamed bass w/ ginger and scallions:...did not taste fresh...overcooked...bad...

Overall, a very unsatisfying meal...i will not return...
