Full House on Hwy 7 - review

sumashi | Sep 8, 2007 03:16 PM

Recently went for dim sum at Full House after reading about the fairly good reviews on CH. I wanted to give Full House and Casa Imperial a try and decided to go with Full House first.
Two of us arrived there at around 2pm and were seated almost immediately, as it was late and although it was still very full inside, there were a few empty tables.

Ordered the following:

roll with bbq pork
sticky rice with meat
shrimp dumplings in the clear/white wrap
shrimp and pork dumplings
mango pudding

The first three dishes were alright, nothing bad, nothing outstanding.
The mango pudding looked so good, it comes as two intricate fishes on one plate with milk on the side. BUT... it was so FIRM! And there were also no mango pieces in it, like I've had at other places. We didn't like it very much.
The shrimp and pork dumplings ......... it came raw!! We each bit into it, and the interior meat was so completely raw, it was chewy and shiny. I don't go to dim sum very often, but my friend said it should rarely happen that they serve raw dimsum.
We sent it back. It was the third dish out on our table so we ate the others as they came and then finally we waited.. and waited... no dumplings in sight. We flag the waiter down again and ask for the bill before he asks if the dumplings ever came out. We say no and that we don't want it anymore since we want to leave. He says "what's taking so long?" and says that he will cancel it for us. Five minutes later, it appears... and then our bill appears 2 seconds later with takeout boxes... and they charged for the dumplings!!
Overall, VERY DISAPPOINTED and will not go back.
