Authentic Not, Don't Be Deceived.

My girlfriend and I were drawn to the window when we walked pass by, then decided to order ourself some authentic Chinese food. The owner claimed to use authentic Szechuan spice. What a Disappointment! The stirred fried chicken with capsicum was a letdown, the chicken had no flavor and it was not spicy. It looked like they are a lot of spice in it, but you don't taste them at all. The Szechuan tofu and string beans tasted old, the tofu was too dry and hard. Chicken and Broccoli tasted bland, the sauce felt like a modified soy sauce with msg and other seasoning. I grew up with americanized chinese food because my uncle used to operate a restaurant. The scallion pancakes were soaked in grease, which we couldn't even finish them. We felt cheated by the duck with truffle and mango sauce which we paid over 18 dollars for , there were barely any meat with a bedding of veggies. We were chewing on layers of duck skins and fat. So never will go back to that restaurant, an awful experience that I won't forget for a long time.
