Great China Food Market
5137 Summer Ave, Memphis, TN 38122
I seriously cannot believe the health department doesn't do anything about this place. It is so dirty and there are roaches crawling around the food. I tolerated this place until I saw roaches crawling around the BBQ pork and decided then and there I would just have to do without Chinese BBQ while living in memphis. On other occasions I've had bad experiences also. Like the time I bought dungeones crabs . They have a tank with live crabs and I asked the owner for 2 of them. She said she would get them for me while I shopped. She then packed them up while I was shopping so I didn't get to see what she put in the bag. When I arrived home and went to take the crabs out of the bag they were dead and smelled bad.I was super upset because everyone knows that you shouldn't buy dead crabs uncooked..you can get very I'll. There was no telling how long they were dead in the tank either sine they smelled. I immediately called the owner to let her know I knew and I wanted a refund and that my husband would be returning the crabs. She was very nasty and said we could not return them even though this was less than 30 minutes after leaving her store. I then reported them to the health department but much to my amazement the place is still filthy.
Truthfully I never would have shopped there in the first place because of the filth I felt I had no choice since Memphis has very few places to get Chinese foods to cook with.
Whenever I bite into a pork bun from there it's in the back of my mind that they are infested with roaches and I instantly lose my appetite.
My husband is Asian and we do lots of Chinese cooking at home and depend on this place for stuff we need. Unfortunetly the owners are monopolizing the Asian market since they are one of the 2 places in town that sell Asian goods. Someone should open a real Asian grocery that is CLEAN and knows how to treat it's customers because this place is a dump..maybe I will open one :)
I've been to Asian groceries in Canada(which has a huge Chinese population) New York, Chicago and even New Orleans and this place is a tiny dirty little dump that puts Asian groceries to shame.

I borded my 3 dogs here for 2 nights and was charged for 3 nights even after being told twice that I would only be charged for 2. I spoke to the owner Dr. Taylor, and she was very rude and defensive and didn't believe me when I told her what happened. Money seems to be the most important thing to this woman and she doesn't have the sense to listen to what her customers have to say.
After Being a Customer for over 3 years I can say I will NEVER bring my 3 dogs here again under any circumstances so even though I lost $35 by being overcharged they will ultimately lose my business and that will add up to much more over the years.
