Went to Trader Vic's, Las Vegas--Ugh!

We have been waiting to try the new Trader Vic's at Planet Hollywood. What a waste of millions of dollars in construction. If you build a new place, at least have somewhat decent food. We had the duck tacos, $9.95. 3 little crisp won-ton skins with dried out duck meat, which did not even taste like duck. Lobster Potstickers tasted more like cream cheese inside than lobster. 4 little ones for $9.95. Pork spare ribs, which were so fatty I sent them back and had them take it off the check. Beef Satay, which were ice cold and no flavor, $9.95. The special fried rice, which was good, but not worth $19.50. It served the 3 of us but nothing really different than what you can get at any chinese place for about $6.00. Caesar Salad, nothing special and not enough dressing. $7.50. It did have a nice presentation though. None of us wanted to drink so we did not do any cocktails. The service was very slow, even though they had many empty tables. People who came in after us got their food, and I stopped the waiter and told him. He went back into the kitchen and got the order pretty quick. From the temp. of things I think it was all sitting back there. The salad came after all the other things were brought out. Don't waste your time or money! The parking at Planet Hollywood has to be the worst on the strip.
