We ordered in from Purple Rain on Thursday evening.
I'm not a Chinese food snob - I like Highway 7 and Spadina Ave, but I have a different standard for delivery.
We ordered a variety of items from Purple Rain - we were hungry, and wanted to have some leftovers as well. It looked like good, kind of junk-foody Chinese - just what we were in the mood for.
Everything (from tom yum soup, beef with snow peas, cashew chicken, and mushroom fried rice tasted the same - like under-seasoned, slightly burnt, dishwater. They literally did not have noticeably different flavors at all.
I've seen places Iike have a very bad night, so that may be the case here, but I'd be interested to hear from others - were we unlikely, or is this a typical mean from this place?
