I ate here last year. Management changed very recently I’m told, and the place is now known as the Dragon Village.
My experience is close to last year’s, except for the TERRIBLE Hot and Sour Soup, and lack of Fortune Cookies.
I stopped in just before 3 PM, so thankfully was able to order off the lunch menu.
I thought the prices were a bit much for supper, and would not stop by outside of lunch special times.
The waitress was polite, and quickly let me seat myself.
The first table I sat at wasn’t right: It seemed a bit higher than it should be, and there wasn’t enough room between the back of the seat and the table. Very uncomfortable, so I moved to another table.
That one was comfortable, but hadn’t been cleaned. The hostess noticed this, and quickly cleaned it.
My order was taken in a timely manner, and the alleged Hot and Sour arrived quickly.
What a horrid disappointment! The soup was a very strong beef broth, had heat in it, but no vinegar. The vegetables were off color, and mushy.
I think this was a very, very old soup, and it was probably the worst Hot and Sour Soup I’ve had, even worse than Port Townsend (friends simply don’t let friends eat Chinese there!). I can’t give it more than 2 out of 10. Yuck. Don’t order it!
The Beef with Broccoli came out in short order: Presentation/plating was nice, it had a good color, and I was able to get the meal with the fried rice at the same price instead of the usual white rice.
The beef was tender, the broccoli pleasantly crunchy.
The rice seemed a bit old, and was a minor disappointment for a fried rice.
The quantity was marginal. Even though I had a reasonable lunch before arriving, I left very hungry.
All in all, I thought the price was a bit high for quantity delivered, slightly offset by a better quality of beef. Still, I don’t think it was worth it.
What really irked me was the lack of a fortune cookie with the meal.
That was cheapness... They couldn’t cost more than maybe 25 cents wholesale.
A perceived lack of value = no return visits.
Also, the place has quirky hours built around the hostess and probably owner shutting the business down to do something with her daughter.
All in all, with input from the locals, and my experience, I probably won’t go back, and I have concerns for the long term survival of this restaurant.
Do yourself a favor, and go somewhere else.
