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
The rooms are very nice, the check in process is horrendous though! We live here and go there once in awhile to get away from it all; but this last trip will be our last. It seems like the younger crowd has taken over and everyday is Spring Break. Nothing like seeing more plumbers crack as I walked through the casino, down the hallways, in the elevator and the language is inexcusable. I finally went and grabbed Security and told them about a young man who was literally exposing both sides of him, hair and flesh; and the Security said "What do you want me to do about it". Well, maintain your 4 star status and tell the man to pull up his pants and get some decorum/manners. They just don't seem to care anymore. No one should have to stand in line for an hour to check in - everytime we go, no matter what time we check in as we have tried diff. times of the day - it is a nightmare. They should have EVERY station open during the prime hours of check in and check out EVERY DAY of the week! The slot machines took every penny and then another MAC withdrawl, I was SHOCKED. They must be hurting bad and they have them rigged NOT to pay a dime - so play table games, it is your only chance of getting anything back. I have lived here for 5 years, right before the BIG DIVE in the economy and all the way through it and I have never seen machines SO TIGHT. We will find another getaway place after this last visit. Let the place go wild if that is the type of clientele they want; why would I want to wear a beautiful dress and spend good money on an expensive, deliciousl dinner to walk behind a group of guys showing plumbers crack issues on the way back to my room for a romantic night??? No thanks - lost my appetite for everything!
I have been there two times both with my BFF, the first time we were very pleased with the sushi. However our waitress seem to not understand english at all. she brought the rolls before the drinks and the appetizers at the end of our meal... never asked we'd liked refills. A second time it was her birthday so we decided to give the little joint secound chance! First they brought us the wrong roll, Secondly, a caripeller roll witout a avocado... in my history of sushi dining, I've never come across caterpillar roll without it! When we asked the waitress she said "well we no do that" we argued for a minute and gave up. We couldn't understand half of what she was saying anyway. Two minutes later she brings a plate with sliced avocado!!! to us its seem like a bad move. Finally, I must admit every single roll was fresh, exquisite, and perfect. Therefore perhaps I will give this little joint third try! After all in my opinion is the best in town.
This is a little hideaway restaurant but definitely worth the trouble to find it. I found this restaurant when it had only been opened one week and since then, I have eaten there a minimum of two times each week and sometimes as many as four times in one week, twice in one day with different friends celebrating my granddaughter's birthday. She loves it, too and she is 11. The owner/chef, David, and his wife Mitra, are wonderful people and make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. I have taken at least 15 of my friends to eat there, too, and they also loved it. David makes his own salad dressings and the Greek Salad is the best I've ever eaten and I am a connosseur of Greek food. His Caesar Salad is to die for and the Salad Olovieh is a special treat. His crepes, both savory and dessert are the best. I heartily recommend you to try this restaurant and you will love it, too.
My boyfriend and I went with friends to this new restaurant. We were not disappointed. Even though they were busy we were seated promptly. The place is beautiful, the food was amazing and our server Ben was very impressive. He gave us a tour of the menu. He made everything sound so delicious we allowed him to make recommendations for us. We had one of the best meals that we have ever had in any sushi restaurant anywhere. The food was high quality with amazing flavors. We had vegetables, seafood, sushi and pasta and everything was absolutely delicious. Throughout the meal Ben showed his true professionalism. He checked on us constantly and made sure we were extremely happy. We highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants a quality meal. If you go ask for Ben. He truly made our dinning experience special.
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 !!!
I just wanted to let you know of a fantastic one of a kind diner in Las Vegas Nevada. It’s called Shari’s Dinner and is located at 1900 North Buffalo Drive. I am an east coaster who is use to diners and of course the famous diner burger. Well this place takes it one step further. They have everything you can think of on a burger, my favorite being “The Big Bite” I highly recommend you make a visit and try a burger or two…. Just make sure you try the Big Bite! With a 50’s theme, and family service, this place is amazing. One visit and you will keep coming back!
