Oh so terrible...
This is not about working out the kinks of a newly opened restaurant.
This place was beyond terrible. It was highly processed bad frozen food...Actually there are many better fast food chains serving better food and tastier choices in the frozen foods section of most supermarkets.
Below some of the highs and lows of the meal
shrimp shumai: see the pic and video I brought a couple home to demonstrate their very unique quality...move over super ball you have competition ...what can I say! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMHiS...
calamari salad...Tasteless calamari, sugar overload in the dressing that was on the greens
"amazing " calamari: amazing because I don't think it was actually calamari, more like some type of underfried processed compressed something molded into ring shapes, sugar overload in the dipping sauce
wonton soup: broth had a strange and salty unpleasant flavor, wontons looked really good tasted like s_ _ _.
Five spice chicken: inedible
Steak teriyaki this dish was the only edible dish ordered and was just that, edible.
Our server had an extremely heavy accent which made it almost impossible for us to understand him...he appeared to be having the same problem understanding us and snapped at us a couple of times.
Apparently this is the fourth restaurant opened and owned by the same person.
Buddha in Rye Brook, Lucky Buddha Thornwood and Yumi in Pelham.
I am at a complete loss, has anyone eaten at any of his other places, are they all this bad Little Buddha, who eats this s_ _ _???

As far as the restaurants ambiance, someone at my table said she was waiting for two Vietnamese karaoke singers to appear and start singing Horse with no name.
For those not familiar (see the karaoke scene from Air America)
