I ordered togo here, near closing time, I got the beef noodle soup, and the beef snow peas, the noodles in the beef noodle soup made me want to vomit the 1st bite I had of them, then the beef snow peas, where not great to me, as in not worth eating. It wasn't good @ all, the snow peas where hard, and not cooked @ all, n the beef was okay. Don't think I will order a beef dish again tho. I saved the boxes of food and put them in a bag, cause this place is close to where I live, I was just going to go back by in the morning and get a exchange since I didn't eat hardly any of the food. Then the manager said they don't do exchanges. That pissed me off. She said they only do exchanges if it made you sick, but I didn't say it made me sick @ 1st I just came in and said I came by last night late and ordered this food and I didn't like it. What I ment by I didn't like it was it made me sick, well the noodles did, not the beef snow peas, I just didn't want to eat it cause I'd rather have something I would enjoy eating. Then when I said the noodle soup did make me sick so said no, your changing your story now. If you go anywhere else, and you order a dish and don't like it, or take a bite and you don't want to eat it, they are suppose to give you something you do like, or let you order something else to the value of what you ordered before. This place just was a disappointment, the customer serves was not satisfying, they wouldn't replace my food w. other food to the value of what I ordered before. which was 12$ or so. I was going to get the veg bok choy, you can't mess up stir frying veggies, and I like veggies. She didn't not just replace my food, she also called me a lier and I'm not a lier. The noodles in the soup right when they got in my mouth I wanted to vomit only the broth was edible. The good parts of this place is it's pretty cheap & they give you larger portions then other places. The bok choy is really good here, I have had the boy choy and beef here, and I ate all the bok choy, and the pot stickers are good here to. The only diff between the 2 are pot stickers are fried, and the steamed dumplings are steamed. Or thats what the guy said who worked there, but I had the fried ones, and they are bigger sized dumplings then the steamed dumplings. The steamed ones have the thinner wrapper and I like the thick wrap on dumplings better then the thinner ones. The egg rolls here are pretty good, not great but good. I guess I am just use to better customer serves I'm from Texas, n not just that, when I am working I give better customer serves. My mother owns a restaurant and I gave good customer serves. I noticed in Vegas they don't give as great customer serves as I gave when I work, not just in the restaurant industry, but any other job I work. I just think if the customer is asking something doable, or reasonable, it should be done, cause I enjoy keeping my customers happy and coming back, n I would want the same serves returned to me if I was a customer, I treat them like I would want to be treated. The golden rule, guess I am the only one who follows that anymore. I'm sure I will come back here I just won't order the beef noodle soup, and if I ever do order something I don't like I know I won't be getting my moneys worth back. It's a okay place. could improve on customer serves but so could alot of place in Vegas in my opinion.
Having grown up in New Jersey and having worked in New York City for several years I have had the chance to eat at many of the best Chinese restaurants on the east coast. My experiences with Chinese restaurants in Las Vegas have been mediocre at best. There are a few "OK" family-owned places around town but it seems like the standard for Chinese food is a Panda Express on every corner. That being said I have now found one Chinese restaurant that makes it completely inexcusable for me to go to the Panda Express down the street ever again. That place is New JJ's Shanghai restaurant. Their Chinese cuisine is some of the best I have had anywhere in the United States. Its one of those little places with only a hand full of tables and a big take out counter that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be serving up 5 star quality meals. JJ's is family owned and operated and their chef, Robert, is a master of the kitchen. I have not had a single thing there that I didn't consider to be both delicious and filling. Surprisingly, JJ's is also light on the wallet too. You can get a fresh cooked Chinese, Filipino or Thai dish with real meat and vegetables (they have tofu too) in the same price range as Burger King or Panda Express ($5-$8 for most things). They also have the best Thai Ice tea I've ever had (and far cheaper than so-called "authentic" Thai restaurants which will charge you an arm and a leg for a Thai ice tea). For the first time in my life I've also tried some of their Filipino items which were very good. The Sinigan Hipon was surprisingly good (it’s a sort of semi-clear tomato soup with whole cooked shrimp and diced vegetables and tomatoes – not something I would have ever imagined myself eating, much less ordering on a weekly basis but now I’m hooked!). I can't imagine anything on the menu being bad (and by the way, the selection on the menu is HUGE -- they also have lunch specials and family dinner meals for a great price). Some of my favorites are the shredded pork with eggplant, the Sinigan Hipon, the twice cooked BBQ pork, the beef chow mein and the house special fried rice. They also boast the best Orange Chicken in 3 states (and that doesn't even count Nevada -- yet!). In this day of pre-packaged and frozen fast food its amazing how good an authentic fresh cooked meal tastes! New JJ's Shanghai restaurant has got me as a customer for as long as I live in Las Vegas!
It depends on what you order....I went there a long time ago,and my boyfriend loved it (he had sweet & sour pork) but I did not like their fried rice (we paid almost $20). Then two years later, I decided to try it again. I loved the Moo Shu Chicken yummy...that comes with 4 wraps (separate box...it is included in the price but make sure they put the wraps/pancake thing in the bag). Anyway, we paid around $15 for the Moo Shu Chicken including pancake and the Sweet and Sour Pork. It was worth it because the Moo Shu was delicious and the Sweet and Sour Pork was very good too. The only complaint was that they did not give me alot of Chicken, it was not bad just could have been more, but the Sweet and Sour Pork combination was a good deal. The last time I went, it was not as good. I got the MooGoo Gai Pan which I dont recommend, the Pork Hunan Style which was okay but not enough pork, and the Sweet & Sour Chicken which was okay...this third time costed me $ 17 for three ' lunch specials' but the portions were small. The Sweet & Sour Chicken was probably a good portion (they give you alot) but the MooGoo Gai Pan did not have flavor & that chicken tasted preserved. The Pork in Hunan Style they did not give me enough meat, although they did give me alot of fresh veggies, and alot of fried rice. Overall, I would say the Sweet Sour Pork Combination and Sweet Sour Chicken combination, they give you more meat. the other non fried meat they dont give you alot of meat. I suppose if you want more meat you have to order ala cart (typically the lunch specials have not enough meat)....but still you would think that if you paid $ 17 for three dishes they would give you more meat. The only benefit is the lunch specials $ 5 - $ 6 comes with a free can of soda or tea (lipton). If you dont want the free coke or soda you can say "no soda" and they will give you one egg roll (actually they will give you the egg roll, but if you want the soda then no egg roll). Pretty OK for $ 5
I happened to have a different experience. My friend and I enjoyed our visit yesterday. They have a lot of items on the menu with some shrimps, oysters, and sushi for $6.99 plus drink ($1,29) if you wish, or you can just ask for water. That's not bad at all as compared to other buffet in town. One thing I noticed is that they only give you a fork; no knife or spoon. I believe that they are getting better, especially to think that Dragon Beffet (across the street) has shut down. I've seen others eating ice cream with a plastic spoon. As far as customer service is concerned, they need to learn "service with a smile" -which is very important in such a business. I believe they will improve with time if they are reading these reviews.
Joyful House is my most favorable restaurant in Las Vegas. Their salt & pepper lobster are the best seafood dish that I have tried in town. It was so crispy & the taste make me can't stop until the last bite. I went to this restaurant since I moved to Las Vegas in 2001, I love this restaurant because they can always maintain a very good service & food quality, I never been disappointed over there. Their waiter are very helpful & friendly to me & my family. I was very impressed by their fine wine list, their chateau petrus, lafite, margaux, australia grange or opus one with an very incredible price that I think no where in town can compare it. Joyful, keep it up !!!
We have tried various Chinese delivery places and never found one we were happy with until now. The food is amazing! The portions are so generous that after we finished our meals, it doesn't look like we but a dent in the food. We had our food delivered and they had thrown in so many complementary items, that we could have just eaten them and been stuffed! Everything was fresh and homemade. The fried items were not even greasy! Sorry for rambling, but I cannot say enough about this place :) Will definately be ordering from them again, and again!
At first I thought CHINA JOE was an ordinary restaurant, but their food was extra-ordinary. I had the 2 people family special with husband, which is more than enough for 3 people. It come with soup, appetizers, fried rice, and 2 large dishes. Their weekdays special is a great deal as well. Monday - 4 potstickers for 2.99 Tuesday - Singapore Noodle for 6.99 Wednesday - Beef/Chicken Satay 1.00 per stick Thursday - Large Hot and Sour soup for 4.99 Friday - 6 Fried Shrimp for 5.99 Good Food, Great Deal
The food here was on point. 5 stars for sure. There are sooooo many options it is impossible to try everything. This Buffet features everything from American cuisine to Asian. I thoroughly enjoyed everything. If you are going in a group be sure to arrive together. If your group is large they will charge additional gratuity. Also, we had asked for more Champagne and our waitress said they were out... how is Caesars Palace out of Champagne for their champagne brunch?? She managed to find another bottle. Whew.
I ordered from this restaurant online without ever having seen a menu - the lady was soooo helpful on the phone and when our order arrived it was beyond delicious! The portions were more than acceptable and the flavor was fantastic! I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and will eat there again and again! - Not to mention they delivered and had no problem finding our place (which is not easy) So overall, the food, the service and the quality and value exceeded my expectations...thank you
I live right next door to Chopstix Express. They have been polite, friendly, and warm. Their staff either are family, or get along so well that they believe they are family. Their food was quickly prepared and ready for pickup when they said it would be ready. The food was well prepared, abundant, and delicious. For such a tiny place, they serve a powerful, well proportioned, quick, and tasty meal. I give it a thumbs up. For anyone who wants to try good food quick, I recommend Chopstix Express.
