Take the Wonton Soup and Run............

steelydad | Dec 30, 201009:12 AM

Read some enthusiastic reviews on CH about this place, so I took my mother, wife, and two teenaged sons for a casual dinner on the Tuesday night after Christmas.

The restaurant was 1/2 full when we arrived. The dried noodles and water came fast, but that was it. Our waitress took our orders for one course at a time. We ordered 4 wonton soups and a Tom Yum Gong soup. The Tom Yum Gong soup arrived 30 minutes after we had finished our wonton. Not a good start... 4 entrees later.............. spring rolls were greasy in a leaden way. Sesame chicken was frozen breaded chicken pieces in a canned sauce with NO sesame seeds. Roast pork with Chinese vegetables was the highlight. Chicken with chinese veggies came in a white sauce that had pieces of raw garlic in it.. Shredded szechuan beef was a black mess, very salty.

However, the wonton soup was delicious. chunks of pork interspersed with firm dumplings in a tasty broth.

I KNOW there is better Chinese food in the area. Please tell me where to find it.

I live in New York, home of 2 Chinese restaurants per block, and the most basic takeout is better than what DL's came up with.
