We made reservations for a party of four this evening (July 4)The restaurant was about 25% occupied and pretty. The waiter took our order and seemed to understand English.He indicated the bowls of soup at $3.95 each were enough for one person- therefore, we ordered three plus three entrees that were in $8.00- $15.00 range. He was prompt,courteous and seemingly helpful. The problems then began.The restaurant began filling up with Asian people whose orders were taken and served food long before our order appeared smome 50 minutes later. The soups were each large enough for two or three people and were all good especially the beef and greens soup. The other dishes were a joke. The "spare ribs" ($7.95) turned out to be 1/3 of one rib wrapped in a grape leaf but designated as an entree. The shrimp was a miniscule sized portion of tiny shrimp in a dessert sized dish ($15.00)
The manager graciously removed one of the two shrimp dishes we ordered and deleted the charge. The last entree, a chicken dish, never arrived. To culminate the evening, we were overcharged on parking by the hotel. In summation, the Hangzhou chef dinner turned out unpleasantly.My recommendation: Don't go.
