Hit and miss at Zoe's Somerville

Still love getting delivery from Qingdao and Zoe's but find that dishes are very hit or miss.

Recent Zoe's delivery was all over the place.

- Hot and sour soup (never great there) was bland and required lots of doctoring.
- Dan dan noodles were fantastic. Hot, numb and garlicky all at once.
- Sichuan style shrimp - breaded soggy shrimp in a standard-issue ketchup-based red sauce with little to no spice. I thought I had seen a rec for this dish on Chowhound and was very disappointed by the turnout.

Any recent faves at Zoe's?

Most reliable for me has been the Fish Fillets with hot chili sauce and Braised Beef Fillets with veg and hot chili.

Any other more authentic sichuan-style recommendations?

Thanks!
