Experience at Chef Changs House, Brookline

I consider myself a pretty tolerant person... if the restaurant I am dining at happens to have mediocre to poor service, I'll tolerate it because the food compensates for it. For me if the restaurant was a poor experience I just never go back, I'm not really one to complain or make a fuss with the staff/owner.

So after reading all the raves about the Peking Duck at Chef Changs I figured I'll take the trouble/make the effort to go eat there despite many other choices available in downtown Boston. So first impressions were pretty bad, the restaurant smelt weird after stepping in to the main dining room. The rugs on the floor looked dirty and was quite un-appetizing.

The duck came out from the kitchen at room temperature, skin was soggy, the fat underneath the skin was not rendered and had turned a pale white. I'm glad that everyone else that had a good experience there didn't have to eat I had.

I also ordered some stir fried vegetables and they were very plain and not very creative as to the assortment of vegetables.

Sorry to rant on but I would never go back and the duck is just plain bad!
