lynn- green tea, full moon and bayon

after reading this article: http://www.boston.com/travel/newengla...
We decided to try out the green tea (Hong Kong-style Chinese eatery). We ordered ginger/scallion lobster, hong kong pork chops and yan chow fried rice. Maybe the hong kong chef was out that night but everything tasted off. The lobster didn't taste like usual gingered lobster it was definitely missing something. The rice was ok a little salty but ok. The pork chops weren't what we were expecting they were in a sweet and sour ketchupy sauce it was ok too. I wouldn't make a repeat visit.

Full moon: we ordered duck noodle soup, bee bong, banh hoi and spring rolls. Everything was great, huge and cheap (all that for about $20)! The only thing I didn't like about the place is it is really rundown and the neighborhood is a little dodgy!

Bayon (on western ave): I swear full moon and bayon have the same exact menu. Does anyone know if they are owned by the same people? We go here a lot and mostly order from the vietnamese part of the menu (rice noodle soup, banh hoi, bee bong etc). The Khmer people we see there are always ordering wonderful dishes we never see on the menu (I wonder what is in the big khmer menu and on the specials board both written in khmer?). Always a great meal w/ great service! Plus they are right next to paylin and 99 markets. Paylin has great homemade vietnamese snacks like rice cake w/ coconut milk and sesame seeds and sweet sticky rice w/ bananas wrapped in a leaf (some days they even have banh mi)!
