Restaurants at Mohegan Sun leave a lot to be desired

Went up to Mohegan Sun for the Treasure Hunters Show (held in the arena) , it was a lot of fun and very interesting. We stayed in Niantic for 3 nights and ate 2 nights in Mohegan Sun. We have been there 5 times before and ate in numerous restaurants in the complex. (Michael Jordan's- very good but pricey; the Summer Shack- Okay ;Tuscany just okay and the Bamboo Forest- very good). On our recent return we ate at the Bamboo Forest which was not up to the standards that we enjoyed on our last visit. The soup and ribs were very good but the entrees were bland .Shrimp dish was supposed to be spicy it had just 1 chili pepper thrown on top and gave it did not give it the spicy flavor we were looking for. We also had a beef dish which was supposed to have Chinese long string beans instead it had broken skinny beans (not what Chinese string beans are supposed to be) and was flavorless . The portions were tiny. It had to be the worst chinese food we've ever had, our local take out is 100% better. We had lunch a Pepe's which we enjoyed (tried their clam pie- very good.) The next night (we got out of the Treasure Hunters Show late so we decided to eat at the Sunburst buffet) When we arrived there it was 8:30, I asked the receptionist what time they stopped serving and she said they don't let anyone in after 9:00, so we had plenty of time. When we were seated, our waitress took our drink order (we ordered wine) and when she returned with our wine she asked for our credit card to close the account because the bar was closing. When we went up to the stations there were putting the food away, wiping down the counters and nothing could be made to order. The food server at the pasta bar said we had to eat what was out. The food was cold and the service was surly because they wanted to close up. Our waitress came over and asked if everything was okay and told us that after we came in they were told that they were closing. Why let us in if that was the case? We told the manager this and a first he said that it wasn't true. We didn't (couldn't)eat a thing. After a while he said that he would refund our money. We do enjoy the casino at Mohegan Sun put would definitely not patronage their restaurants. We ate out the other night in Old Saybrook and had a wonderful meal at Liv's, I will review that next.
