Yesterday afternoon my husband and I decided to take our kids out the dinner at China City. Only because he has been craving crab legs and Chopsticks stop serving them. It's our absolute favorite Chinese restaurant (Chopsticks)! Every time we go here the fish pond thing in the front to your left is always dirty .So the host rushes us in to sit at a table we asked for a booth so he gave us a booth. The one thing I do like there was no longer available. The host gave us the wrong drinks and they tasted funny. The ice cream machines alarm kept going off every time my son would try to get some ice cream. Then one of the waitresses would run over to stop it. We had two waitresses one waiter that took their sweet time. And acted as if they didn't care to serve us. We stayed all but 30 minutes and left $1 tip! Never again we all agreed that we would not eat there ever again!
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.
Its was GROSS , the egg rolls were over cooked and nasty, the fish was dry, the waiter took our drink then came back with it 3 min later (wtf), chicken wings were still pink near the bone, the crawl fish insides were black/grayish (wtf i never seen it like that), the watermelon looked old ( brownish/ orange color) there were some that were red but i didnt even bother, The only thing that was good was there season french frys and corn nuggets and i liked the almond cookies. Overall I would never go there again
