We had high hopes for this place based on reviews here and elsewhere, and could not have been more disappointed.
The location is unappealing (next to an "adult shop" in a strip mall in an industrial park) but I would not hold that against them.
We showed up around 6PM on a Saturday night and the maitre d' asked if we had reservations. We did not, but the place was maybe half full so we did not expect it to be a problem. Even though there were many available tables, he stuck us all the way in the back next to the bathrooms.
We sat there for a very long time before we were brought menus, water, or bread.
The tap water had a very funny taste - perhaps soap in the glass, but it tasted like banana peels or something similar. It was nasty.
We ordered shrimp cocktail and some of the shrimp were VERY poorly de-veined. It was kind of gross, I've never seen that before in a place like this.
The service was extraordinarily bad and by this point I was already itching to just get out of there. I ordered the pepper steak special and was hoping that this would at least be a decent meal. WRONG. It was the nastiest piece of beef I've ever been served. It was undercooked and full of tendons and other unidentifiable disgusting stringy things.
The lighting is so dark in this place that I couldn't even really tell how poor it was until I had tried to force down half of it. Had I not been dying to get out of there, I would have sent it back.
Oh, and the food is EXPENSIVE.
I don't have a single good thing to say about this place and I will never ever go back there. Not in a million years. I'd rather eat at the Blimpie a few doors down.
I have to assume that the other glowing reviews on this site are fraudulent. Nobody would cross the street for this place, much less drive an hour.
Stay far far away!
Pros: absolutely non
Cons: bad food, bad service, bad water, dark room
