Lee Chen - MIXED BAG

After reading sterling reviews about the place, especially the szechuan dumplings, decided to give it a try. 2 dishes we had (garlic shredded pork and chicken lo mein) were spectacular; szechuan dumplings weren't. Actually, the would have been OK with 1/5 the sauce - it was so heavy and so cloying, I thought we were gargling (bad) Satay.

Scraped most of it off and enjoyed the dumplings, were we good themselves.

Veggie fried rice was horrible. I dunno where they get off calling it fried rice. More like steamed brown rice. Health nuts, and those on diets might enjoy it, but it certainly didn't pass the "Chinese" test.

Place is nice, and staff was pleasant. We'd go again. But we'd stick to main entree-style dishes from now on.
