one of my favorite Chinese restaurantsThe food is really good..never had anything I did not like-love the moo shu veggie -- but why I really like this restaurant is the girl who takes the orders. She is nice and she always brings the food out to my brother and I. The rest of the staff was also very nice once helping me find my car keys I had dropped in the dark parking lot denoting considerable time to help me find them which in my panic I appreciated.I also like that they have no problem with special requests I have made and they even charge you the same when they add an extra veggie or even less when I requested just broth when I was fasting drinking only fresh juices, herbs and broths as part of a health building program to try to beat a recent cancer diagnosis. I'm on day 47 of my planned 120 day juice fast and I am sure I will be in to get more delicious broth which helps tide me over when I start craving food. . Awaiting the day when I can again eat some of the many choices.I was just talking to another patron who said he liked the food so much there that it is the only Chinese restaurant he goes to. He could not have made a better choice..not the fanciest but a great little place located near Eastland mall in a nearby shopping center off Hamilton road south of refugee one block or so.Great job, staff, on everything from friendliness, price, service and of course, yummy. attractive food.So glad we live close by..I believe they are friendlier than most of the other Chinese restaurants I have been to and a little more willing than some of the restaurants to make adjustments/special requests for the customers. At restaurants that refused to do this, I don't go there anymore as the request is simple and It makes me feel they are not concerned about their customers..here they are concerned in your happiness and dining pleasure and I like that. I feel better when I see the server's friendly smile.They would get even more kudos from me if they would offer brown rice and even more veggie dishes as well as I am trying to eat more vegan and healthier than before. I hope they will consider this request as I am seeing more and more Chinese restaurants offering brown rice and vegetarian entries than ever. As more people are wanting to eat whole grains and are going vegetarian or vegan or at least cutting back on meat so if they offer more of this, they can please both meat eater and those on a plant based eating plan.
The food is great. Authentic dishes and great soups, however, the service is terrible. Their ""system"" relies on 2 or 3 people sorting through the …
If you are looking for an AUTHENTIC Mexican dining experience in Columbus, run - DO NOT WALK - to Playa Largo! (To give you a clue as to how authentic this restaurant is, the menu is in Spanish and the clientele when I was there was almost entirely of Hispanic or Latino descent.) Absolutely excellent and quite delicious mix of tasty home-style cooking, as well as traditional American/Mexican "fusion" dishes and very near gourmet grade Mexican dishes. Service is at a relaxed pace, and food was served by several members of the cooking staff when I dined there with a friend. Having lived previously in both Texas and Southern California, this humble establishment was exactly what I had been missing! Not for everyone if you prefer familiar Americanized Mexican served at lunch-hour pacing, but If you are somewhat adventurous in your eating preferences, try Playa Largo. You will NOT be disappointed.
We went there for my son's birthday dinner. It was very packed which is expected on a weekend. The gentleman at the front said since it's his birthday he could get a free gourmet burger. Wait time was suppose to be 25 mins but we waited around 45, people who came in after us was somehow seated before us with the same amount of guests. When we were finally seated the table & floor especially was filthy then the waitress informed us that my son couldn't get a free gourmet burger but they would do the birthday song and a sundae. My son didn't get any of that, instead we got crappy service and we didn't even get everything we ordered! Food was good, service crappy! Very disappointed!
Get the lemongrass soup and the biscuit that comes with it. It's ridiculously good. Really, even if you don't get the soup make sure you get the biscuit! The other food itself is fine, but there's nothing to rave about as far as the limited menu items that I've sampled go. I do think the place has gone a little downhill because I've been going here for years and have been a little disappointed as of late, but I'm holding out hope that these were just isolated incidents.
We were greeted by a waitress who would have rather been someplace else other than at this place. To make things worse the food was not very good. Having been brought up in an Italian community and worked and played in Chicago, I have experienced the best of the best in Italian Charm and food. This was the second class and I find it hard to call it Italiano. 5 thumbs down.
Super great food. Have so many choices, making this place great for a good lunch or indulging dinner. The food is very flavorful, and I really enjoy the Szechuan menu. I've eaten here numerous times and never felt bad, so I don't understand some of the other comments. I really enjoy this restaurant and plan to return. Give this place a try!
Tried this earlier with friends... and one had just returned from 7 weeks in SE Asia, so much of the food tasted authentic to her! :) Her portion was smaller and mine larger, but food was good, place looked pretty clean, lots of folks came in to eat, as well as a large party. Great pics with menu/descriptions. Prices very reasonable! :)
I used to live just down the street from this place and took for granted how very convenient it was to have a great Chinese restaurant so close - then I moved away. After 5 years, I've tried many places that just don't compare. I finally got a chance to get take-out here again. It still the best!!!
Amazing food! If you are craving flavorful food that leaves your taste buds craving more, and if like eating in a relaxing atmosphere, then you have to check out HY Asian cuisine. Also, the first few pages of the menu are translated into english. Do not fret, just point at a random dish and enjoy!
After reading some of the reviews I was a little leary of eating here. The food was fresh, waitress was nice and asked if we wanted refills on our drinks. It states as you walk in the door 1 free refill on drinks but it has been mentioned in many reviews I've read that they were not offered.
