Just finish having dinner at the supposedly consistent and good 'Brilliant Chinese Restaurant' The restaurant was packed and the meal was BAD! BAD! BAD! We even have to complain and return one of the dishes ( Braised whole yellow fin Garoupa tail section that was sooooo fishy in smell and taste ). This was my second bad experience this year in a Chinese restaurant! The first one was a meal at Emperor on Mother's day! Is this a trend?! Bad food on a holiday that falls on a weekend?!! I guess so!!
Service was pretty bad too! Our waitress tried consolidating our dishes by scooping scallops onto the beef dish without our approval! During the process, she dropped a serving spoon full of sauce onto my daughter's Gucci hand-bag!! My daughter almost 'killed' her!!!!!
BTW, the table next to us in Brilliant was occupied by caucasians who happened to order a whole bunch of dishes that would require 'insider information' and advance order. Either they worked for the Globe & Mail or they must be chowhound members! What a bad time to try out an 'off-form' restaurant recommended on the chowhound board!!
