I really wanted to love this place. I was a huge fan of Seven Star in Newton Centre before they closed and when I heard they were reincarnating in Roslindale and that one of the children had attended culinary school and would be adding some Asian fusion I was very excited to try it. This past Saturday I picked up take-out at approximately 6 pm. I ordered 2 appetizers: beef wrapped in scallion pancake with hoisen sauce and Orange Soy Glazed Baby Back Ribs, neither stood out and both were average; the beef wrapped scallion pancake sounded like an interesting fusion twist but was devoid of sauce and dry; the meat on the baby back ribs literally fell off the bone as if the ribs had been boiled and the meat was a little mushy. For entrees, I ordered the Shrimp Blossoms and the Crispy Shrimp and Scallops with Garlic. The Shrimp Blossoms were probably the best dish, lots of extra large shrimp with egg white, carrots and fresh shitake, very fresh, ample portion but a little bland. The Crispy Shrimp and Scallops however were over salted which kind of overwhelmed any other flavor in the dish. Based upon other posts and my own expectations, I would have to say that I was sadly disappointed.
