Sault Ste Marie: Panna-YES; Hard Wok Cafe-NO

rlh | Apr 18, 2008 03:52 AM

Several visits to Panna downtown have confirmed that the service and the food are consistently outstanding along with the nice atmosphere - the frites are great, the lamb shank special was delicious, the pizzas are well above average, and the seafood dishes are fresh and well-prepared in most cases with great flavors (except the green curry which is more spicy than expected - in a good way).

Can't seem to book enough in advance to try A Thymely Manner, so it must be either really good or really small or both.

Hard Wok Cafe is a disaster in terms of food quality and flavor - it is really cheap and really fast, but unfortunately the main dishes were truly inedible - Spicy Ginger Chicken was deep-fried bits of skin and fat (no meat) covered in sticky, sweet red sauce and Beef with Broccoli was overcooked broccoli with bits of grey boiled meat - and they forgot the rice altogether - definitely skip it!
