For the past year or so, Pagoda has been pretty reliable. Not greasy, fresh food, fast service. I've even given them props here on this board. But the last 2 trips (both times takeout) were a complete mess!
Couple of weeks ago, the broccoli in the chicken with broccoli was overcooked to the point of mush, the egg rolls were soaked with grease and the soup container was not full. OK, maybe a bad night so we stayed away for a bit.
Ordered again last night and the noodles in the lo mein were pasty and undercooked and the dish had absolutely no flavor. Soup container was full this time but the number of wontons had decreased by nearly half. I called the manager and let him know about this order and the previous one and he seemed apologetic but didn't understand why I thought the noddles weren't good. OK... 2 dinners now ruined (total about $60) so time to scratch this off the list.
Anyone know if there was a change in management or staff here? Or just a case of cost cutting? The waitstaff all look familiar to us so I'm thinking it's the kitchen.
