My husband and I love this place. The food is great, the portions are great and you can't beat the price. The only bad thing I have to say is that we had a server who coughed in her hands a few times and I never saw her wash her hands or use hand sanitizer. I needed a refill but was disgusted to have her take my cup. I also bypassed her and asked the other server for a take out tray. I had lost my appetite and had to pack the rest to go. We needed to order a plate to go for my sister-in-law and ordered it from the lady at the cashier's desk so that our server wouldn't touch that food. I didn't make a big stink there because other people were eating but it was a horrible experience. We have eaten there numerous times and this is the first time we have seen that. The worst part is that I called the restaurant to inform them about their server's unsanitary action, I am not sure I spoke with an owner, manager or just the cashier but all they had to say was "okay." With the H1N1 (Swine) Flu going around it is very irresponsible to be doing stuff like that. So, if you are going to eat out please be observant and make sure your waitstaff/server is practicing good hygeine while handling your food and beverages.
I don't know what Krethotis is talking about. This place has the BEST Hot and Sour soup. I love bamboo shoots and tofu and they definitely don't hold back on those ingredients which is great. The lunch specials aren't bad either. I had the Orange Beef with fried rice and it was mouth-watering! The staff there is also wonderful. The server was attentive, came to the table every now and then to see if everything was alright and if I needed anything else. As I was paying for the meal at the front desk, the cashier also asked if everything was alright. I like the atmosphere there alot. It felt nice knowing that the staff cared about their customers. Great job Da San Yuan!
Don't listen to Rivadeneira!! He's probably just used to restaurants who claim to be Chinese places but have Mexicans cooking the food. Da San Yuan is authentic Chinese cuisine! How cool is that?! It's a great place to go to for lunch or dinner out with the family. They have a HUGE menu...so many dishes to chose from. What I liked the most is that they can custom make your dishes (add or leave out certain ingrediants) unlike that nasty place Dia Tung on Sharry Rd.
