Chopsticks Not So Bad After All
I have eaten at various Chinese restaurants across the whole country, and Chopsticks ranks about middle of the road. Not great but not bad. They are always fast to seat new arrivals, drinks are served quickly, and there is a plethora of cuisine fare to choose from. And that doesn't just mean Chinese food - they have Bar-B-Q, Mexican, and Sushi to pick from. One thing that I particularly enjoy is the seafood variety. Of course, as with almost any restaurant in the world, it isn't immune to some criticism. My first focuses on their friendly but nevertheless busy staff. Sometimes my drink needs refilling but goes without for up to five minutes (which, in general isn't very long, but when thirsty, it can be). My second criticism is the fact that popular food items disappear quickly, sometimes for fifteen minutes or longer. While this sounds like I'm being too picky, I don't believe I am; many of the people who attend this location go specifically for those food items, and I'd imagine eventually those responsible for kitchen coordination would catch on and prepare for this sort of thing. It really has the potential to lose this place publicity. Other than that, I would like to address some of the rumors about this restaurant. During my (many) visits to Chopsticks, I (nor my parties) haven't ever encountered dirty plates or dinnerware, cold food, improperly prepared food, or a dissatisfied experience afterword. If I (or we) had, then I wouldn't be a repeat customer as I am. Once a month I make it a point to attend Chopsticks, sometimes more often than that. It is a quiet, relaxing place to sit back, eat some good food, and wind down after a long week of work or school, or for something semi-special. 3.5 stars out of 5.
