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.
At Wah Kee, the sevice is excellent, the decor simple and the food to die for. They make everything from scratch - including the hot mustard, hot oil, crab rangoons, etc. The General Tso's looks and tastes like it should - unlike the yellow, sickly looking things with no flavor other places give…
I have no idea what people are complaining about. Every single restaurant in the world, sometimes orders are mixed up. Yet, nobody talks about when they get good service so I will start:\r \r I used to work at Rackspace from 07 to 08 and not once did they have a problem w/my order. I love their …
14. China Garden
Love the delivery here! Even if I order soup everything comes hot and fresh. The driver is always so very polite and ordering by phone is so convenient. Thanks for making dinner a little bit easier!
15. Chins Garden
My wife and I often order delivery from here and we are always amazed how fast it gets to our door. One night it was literally there in 15 minutes! And it takes at least five minutes to get to our house from the restaurant if there is no traffic. The portions are big and the food is not greasy…
16. China Stix
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…
This place has all the chinese food that you want and some viatnamese cuisine to, Typically we order mongolian beef w/wonton sou and fried rice and sweet and sour pork and chicken w/ eggdrop soup, fried dumplings (6), crab rangoons (6), and chicken lo-mein. The flavors are great and so are the…
Full house Chinese restaurant is excellent family style restaurant. Best sesame chicken and egg roll in the town. Nice service and everything is fresh and excellent.
The food is sooo good. They work with you when you need substitutions. They have just about everything you could want! & The owner/manager is the friendliest man on earth. Make sure you try the seaseme chicken, the amazing chicken, and the hot & sour soup. Oh! & order the pu pu platter. You'll t…
24. Fire Wok
If you, like me, like your vegetables very crisp and fresh and you are tired of getting dishes filled with veggies that appear to have been overdone by a factor of many, you will like this place. Its also wonderful because, since they do the wok fry to order, you can add or substract whatever yo…
While I am a bigger fan of Thai food, I have eaten numerous times at all three locations. Best Fri, Sat. & Sun evening. Unending Opelio crab (Snow Crab) and peeled, deveined shrimp. Large variety of sushi as well. Besides tasting good, the preparation and safety processes are under Peter's wat…
26. China Inn
Very excellent food no matter what you order, and the staff are wonderful. We eat there often, and I have taken others with me and then they become fans. Never too busy or dead. This is a very reasonable place to eat. Laura P.
First time going and I was not let down by the positive reviews. Had the chicken curry and it was yummy! Loved the atmosphere; quiet, small, and the service was on point. I will go back again try something different.
28. Bean Sprout
I was skeptical with all the bad reviews but I tried it recently, and it was amazing. I had the house special , and some sushi. I though it was very fresh and tasty. The people who work there are awesome, and I will continue to go there as much as I can afford. Give it chance and you wont regret…
While Tapei seems to get the larger crowds, Beijing is more reasonably priced and has just as good (if not better in some cases) food offerings. If you want to try something different, ask for their Vietnamese menu (for eat in or take out).
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
