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.
I eat at this restaurant every week and like the first poster stated, the mongolian barbeque is awesome. At lunch time, they usually are rocking and rolling because the buffet is super fresh. But if you like freshness, you should really try the mongolian. $7 for an all you can eat lunch is a …

Over all there food is good . its about the same you find at any other chinese food place just doesnt taste as premade. Its better to dine in here then to get delivery.. Even living right across the street it takes over and hr to deliver and a $20 minimum which doesnt include food tax or deliver…
I've been to china twice. This place is just like that. Only place in San Antonio I've seen like that. So if you want that kind of food, you'll like it. It's not American Chinese.
I have been to a few chinese buffets and I have to say they are not my favorite. But this place is okay. The variety is there and each dish has it own distinct flavor. The place is neat and clean. The sushi is fresh, the rice is new, soft and season well. The variety on the buffet table get…

I have gone to this little place for years. Their lunch special is limited, but excellent. They serve the BEST pork fried rice with all specials, lemon chicken being my fav.
13. Asia Kitchen
It's called Asia Kitchen and should have Asian cooks or chefs. But it does not, it has Hispanic or Mexican Cooks. The last time I went there I got the nun pric pao and it was flavorless. When they had the Asian Chefs, it was delicious. I won't go there again

20. House of Joy
Since now under new ownership and management this place just keeps getting better. The Hot and Sour Soup is fantastic. Family favorites are Imperial Shrimp and Sweet and Sour Pork or Chicken. The ""sweet"" tea has just a hint of jasmine and is sooooo good even my husband (who usually does NOT…
I have been going to this buffet for over ten years now. WOAI did a review that said they had problems. Don't buy it.I see the owner checking the temp of the food on the buffet all the time! That says he is very consistant regarding the cleanliness as well as the fact it is great food.Enjoy!
The first time I went I had a egg roll which by the way was crazy greasy n rough, but I was so hungry i still ate it. The second time I went I ordered a kids meal since I didn't have much appetite and ordered lemon chicken with rice. Idk but the rice tasted like nothing, the chicken was cut as i…
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.
This was our first time trying Sichuan House! Awesome! The staff was attentive, helpful and seemed to genuinely care about their patrons. The food is served family style, but you don't have to share if you choose not to. We chose 7 items, 2 appetizer and 5 entrees. All were amazing! I have to say. The pork belly is the dish to try but even the fried rice was some of the best I have had. The staff checked in with us continually to make sure we had drinks, if we liked everything, they had great suggestions and truly know their menu and all the flavors of their food. I highly recommend trying Sichuan House top restaurant in San Antonio!!!
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!
Over all there food is good . its about the same you find at any other chinese food place just doesnt taste as premade. Its better to dine in here then to get delivery.. Even living right across the street it takes over and hr to deliver and a $20 minimum which doesnt include food tax or delivery fees. So look yo spend atleast $24 for a single meal when ordering delivery. Waitors are usually pretty nice. Management seems stiff ... And usually not enough parking for dine ins... I rather play pokemon go here
Our family tried this place for the first time and were deeply impressed! We ordered the family pack with mongolian beef and beef with brocolli . Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Alot of sauce on both dishes that did not lack flavor. The shrimp friedrice was wonderful. With big pieces of shrimp and fresh veggies in it. The portions were huge! We only spent $35 and got a gallon of tea with the meal. We ordered to go. Next time we will eat there. And im never going back to Formosa Gardens again.
This is the place to go for good food and a good 'ol time. Every Friday from 7pm-11pm there is Karaoke. Has a great home feeling and there is no judgment. If you want to keep on singing throughout the night ask DJ SkudR Jones who will keep working the night at another location. But you have to come first. There is even a Facebook page full of pictures of singers and they stay connected. Everyone is a good soul! So near Brooks Base go into Shangrila for a good Friday night.
I been eating here since I was a kid with my parents and now I'm bringing my picky daughter here and she loves it...I had my bad times but also alot of good to make up for it the food is great and the egg foo yong is the best... we order the dinner for 3 for me my wife and daughter and we get enough for 4!!! The price is awesome and atmosphere hasn't changed a bit since I was little I recommend it from a person that's been going for over 20 years
