Chang's has been my favorite restaurant BY FAR for years, but the company has a serious problem they need to address because the theme is consistent in online reviews: CONSISTENCY!!! It used to be that maybe one in ten visits to a Chang's was somewhat disappointing, but now it's 50/50 at best! To help ensure I don't have to write a bad review (because I love the company!) I asked my server (who was great) to make sure the chef knew I was a nationwide Chang's customer and that my Mongolian Beef was crispy. I'm sure the server did because he was very good otherwise. What did I get? Not only a dish that was less crispy than normal, but one that was not crispy AT ALL and also undercooked!!! P.F. Changs corporate are you listening?? Your customer base is writing bad reviews everywhere not because they don't like you but because they are tired of being disappointed after you've served them food they WANT to return to buy and instead get something that isn't as good as the frozen version at Wal Mart for $7.50 and that ISN'T sarcasm, at this point the frozen spicy chicken or sweet & sour chicken is a somewhat overpriced but tasty consistent deal and going for the REAL THING is a rip off!!!. I never send food back, and of course didn't this time, but I'm done now after eating countless entrees that were not correctly prepared (been to about 14 locations numerous times so I have an idea of what is correct). From now on it's going back and if it's not right again I walk out and write another review stating such until Chang's gets its act together or I give up on them :( ---------------------------------------------------- Update: I returned twice (so far) to give this location a chance at redemption after serving me nearly raw Mongolian Beef a few days earlier (that's not very crispy!), and the visit went much better. The Sesame Chicken was prepared well, although a couple times at other locations I've had it where the corners are bordering crispy like the Mongolian Beef and out of this world!) and tasted as good as it looked. The server was a young girl who leaves plenty to be desired but did an OK job (I won't be too hard because they have been slammed all holiday week and maybe she is burned out). On my next visit I got the Kung Pao Scallops and asked for them to be well cooked and they came out just fine. The real star of this visit however was a server named Mandy, a young girl who told me she has ample experience in hospitality and it shows, however, her personality is what is important and she was so pleasant and attentive that I wrote an email to Chang's corporate to make sure she is recognized and her management takes good care of her because she knows how to do the job unlike so many of the bozos we see in the world today who should not even think about working in hospitality. I've had better Chang's food, but Mandy pulled the rating right up to a 5.

Ordered sweet and sour chicken got 7 pieces of chicken. Order was missing the egg roll and portions were very minimal. Had to wait ten minutes for order just to get home to have to come back because order was not complete. Management was incompetent to run this business.

This is a great British-style pub. It is a little too smokey for my liking, but you can't beat their burger! They have other great items on the menu, but I always go back for the burger!

This restaurant is mainly a drive thru restaurant, it delivers very far from its location and it's family owned, the prices are much cheaper than other chinese restaurants and the food is always made really quickly and has a high quality, I highly reccomend it!
When I first saw the outside of China Stix, I wasn't too sure about eating there. But once I walked into the restaurant, everything was very assuring. Nicely decorated, but not with the cheesy dragons and the ridiculous hanging lights. However, the staff was not Asian at all. But that allows anyone to work there, encouraging a multi-ethnical staff. Although the laminated menus did not match the ambiance of the rest of the dining area, there was a very large selection. From pan fried dumplings to Hunan delight, the restaurant was quite diverse. First, I ordered the pan fried dumplings because I am a huge fan. About ten minutes later, they came with a spicy sweet sauce which was extraordinary. It complimented the dumplings extremely well. Next the three entrees came: Kung Pao Chicken (If it isn't good, then the whole restaurant), Sesame Chicken (For a sweet touch), and Jalapeno Chicken (Just for Fun). All of them were great, especially the sauces. Believe it or not, the sesame chicken was my favorite. Although a little overbreaded, it was quite tasty. The Jalapeno chicken came in second, but it still had a unique flavor. It wasn't as spicy as I wanted it, but the taste was great. Finally, the Kung Pao Chicken was my least favorite. It was just a little bland. At least it wasn't your ordinary square-chopped chicken with square-chopped ingredients. Instead, you could taste all of the vegetables in your mouth; like they were grown in the kitchen. Everything was very fresh, which was a major turn on. Each dish was served with an egg roll and fried or steamed rice. The egg roll was ordinary - a little bland. The fried rice was actually surprisingly good. With the sauces from the entrees, the rice combination was excellent. Overall, the food was very pleasant. Service was satisfying. One thing to improve on is service though. Also, the food could be a little more seasoned. Other than that, it was a very good Chinese restaurant. I would definitely go back again and again and again.
We tried China Bistro tonight as my husband had been dying to try this lovely little restaurant. It is tucked in a small strip mall on Babcock but do not let that fool you. Once inside you notice how cozy and welcoming of an atmosphere. You are greeted upon entering and everyone there is very gracious; very much concerned about your experience. Since it was our first time, the owner even came to chat with us after dinner. The food is very good, fresh and deliciously prepared. I ventured a bit outside my comfort zone and while I am not usually a fan of green and red peppers, the food was excellent, wonderfully cooked and presented. You cannot beat the price and if you choose the dinner special (4pm to close) you receive soup, fried rice, entree, egg roll or crab rangoon or sweet and sour pork for around $7. You also receive the little fried crunchies with your soup. We were simply shocked when our server brought out our dinner. The portions were HUGE. I mean we left with four boxes of leftovers and we are not little eaters! At any rate, try this place - you will not be disappointed by this quiet, very clean, very welcoming restaurant. We are big Chinese food lovers - both Chinese American dishes as well as authentic Chinese dishes. We have enjoyed Chinese food in some of the best places across the US and Canada. . We have also had the pleasure of eating in China, specifically the Hunan and Guangdong provinces. China Bistro is definitely a cut above with their cozy atmosphere, their awesome food, and their fabulous service! If we could rate this restaurant with 6 stars, we would!!!
I have to agree the food from Peng's is very good but the men in the kitchen (including Jenny's husband) are not very clean. I worked at Peng's for a while and could not believe some of the things the cooks did back there like smoking while cooking the food, dropping food on the floor and still using it. There were always rat droppings in the storage room and when Jenny did have the exterminator come she never closed the next day although she knew there were gonna be roaches everywhere. There was 1 day I was so embarrased because a table of 3 women walked out without paying because a big roach was on their table while they were eating, plus there were roaches on the blinds and some crawling on the floor and all Jenny said was "Just pick em up with a napkin and throw em away". People always complained about the taste of the iced tea and that is because they do not use a tea machine, instead they put the tea bags in a bucket with hot tap water and let them sit in the freezer.
I orders crab rangoons, sweet and sour delight, small hot and sour soup for delivery. I was expecting rangoons like any other place I've gotten them from, soggy greasy and chunky cream cheese filling, what I got was delicious golden crispy rangoons with an actual creamy filling. The hot and sour soup surprised me the same way, I was expecting typical thick gelatin "soup" with some mushrooms and tofu. What I actually got was the best hot and sour soup I've ever put in my mouth. The sweet and sour delight, consisting of fried shrimp, chicken and pork was also delicious. Usually sweet and sour chicken shrimp or pork I get from other places turns out to be a greasy soggy mess but these were crisp and golden. Other than the shrimp was a bit over cooked and the chicken was a little dry but other than that it was perfect (pork was excellent) I plan on making it my permanent place to get Chinese and Vietnamese food from
Hand Down The Best In Town !! I moved to San Antonio in 1997 and Lung Fung was my absolute all time favorite place to eat. I was a regular at this place. So much so, the owner and staff new my name and would bring my drinks without even having to order. If the buffet did not have my favorite - the owner would ask the cook to make it for me - without me even asking. The food was superb, every-time. Always consistent - the items always tasted wonderful (and always the same - which is usually a problem at some other restaurants) I retired and moved away several years ago - wish I could visit more often - I never miss an opportunity to get my fill here when I visit.
The food is okay but the delivery service is a joke. The last two times we have waited over 2 hours for our delivery order. That is just insane! They will say "We are on our way" then another hour passes and they are still not there. When you call to cancel the order they say "Its already made and on its way" Yummmm 2 hour old Chinese food?! It's expensive and delivery is awful. Sadly it is the only option on this end of town. Hopefully the new City Base West will bring about new Chinese restaurants!
The atmosphere was clean for the most part. There was a little bit of paper and even a stain on the tile; kind of like a sauce stain that had dried. The music was upbeat jazz, which I thought suprisingly fitted the restaurant well, although I thought it was too loud. I struggled to have a converstion with the person sitting across from me. The food was bland and didn't really stand out. The employees didn't seem all that interactive with the consumer. A process view of dining with a product view style of deliverance.
BEST KEPT SECRET IN SAN ANTONIO...been eating at this resturant for over 20 years....turned my father on to it...every chance he had coming up from CUERNAVACA, Mor, MEXICO he would take his wife at least 2-3x a week to have lunch or dinner here...and, he could afford to go ANYWHERE he wanted to.... The establishment is clean, casual, and, the FOOD is very, VERY good. TREAT YOUSELF, (YOURSELVES) and have your next meal here....you won't regret it....you'll say "IT'S THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN SAN ANTONIO....
I think the people who own this place also own Grand Buffet on Military near Pleasanton. If you go there for lunch it's average. Dinner time is better. Burke like any restaurant you have to know their strengths an weaknesses. Always go for the Mongolian barbecue or grill. You can put as much shrimp, chicken, pork or beef. You can also get crab legs. Egg rolls are also good. They did have stale noodles for the soup the last time I went, but like I said, you have to know what they do well and what they don't.
