CBS Seafood disappointment

Deborah | Mar 17, 200210:33 PM     2

Just got home with my first meal from CBS Seafood. I wasn't expecting much, but really. Green beans are sort of cut and sauteed, with none of the black sear and garlic I expect from the dish. A few clumps of soft ground pork. The eggplant is a disaster: undercooked and swimming in sweet-and-sour sauce. The sauteed prawns are shrimp and broccoli in a white sauce. Didn't they used to make this sort of thing in a freezer bag you dropped in boiling water?

ABC is often mentioned interchangeably. Are they about the same? How about Hop Li? I'm trying to find a good fallback Chinese downtown other than Full House and Happy Valley (which was my other standby but seems to be closed indefinitely). It would be fantastic if they had an A rating, at least occasionally (as does none of the above), and a miracle if they delivered.
