Terrible experience at Petite Soo Chow

fjc1z1 | Feb 27, 2009 06:53 PM

We go to Petite Soo Chow often for the soup dumplings. Usually we just have a couple of orders of the soup dumplings. Tonight my wife and son ordered the General Tao chicken and I had the shredded pork with garlic sauce. The pork was excellent. But the General Taos was terrible --lots of fat in the chicken. I guess they did not properly prepare the chicken properly before cooking.

We spoke to the waitress whom we had never seen there before. She said we ordered the wrong item and suggested the "house chicken" because it had white meat. We told her we had ordered General Taos several times previously and it was always wonderful. It never had bits of fat previously. We told her to take both orders away because they were not up to there usual standards.

We were billed for both General Taos. We are a regular customers and I expected a better response. It was my fault ,I was tired of hearing my wife complain that I left without speaking to the "lead" lady.

Also, the soup dumplings did not have any soup in them.

Just want to let people know the quality is going down. Is there a place with excellent soup dumplings and Chinese food in the Cranford area.
