Mpls Dining woos

I have been very disappointed with three restaurants with Asian fare. The first is Temple - which replaced Tiburon. My boyfriend and I were shocked at the prices! $16 for a spring roll. "A" spring roll! Usually it costs $5 and you get two. Not at this place. Just one spring roll cut in half, and the roll wasn't even stuffed. Such a disappointment. Also got the Sea Bass that cost $26 - it came with 4 green beans and 2 dumplings. I don't know who I am upset with, the restaurant menu or me for choosing to go there.

Then I went to Azia - I should have learned my lesson since the owner of Azia is the owner of Temple. It took 10 minutes for someone to serve me in the bar during happy hour. The bar was not that busy and there were 4 servers just gabbing away at the bartender. I finally had to go over and ask the bartender to send me a server. The rest of the experience was disappointing with overfried cranberry wontons, but the martinis were awesome.

Last - Wasabi Fushion. I know it is new and it needs to get some kinks out. But the service is below average, though the sushi chefs are great. Something is weird with the sushi rice though - it doesn't stick well, so when you get nigiri or a roll, each piece tends to fall apart. I have hopes that Wasabi will do better as the months progress - but for now, be warned.

Am I the only one feeling this way?
