I have not read a bad review of this restaurant chain. But the many times I have dined here, particularly in recently history, I have not been impressed. The severe lacking in quality of today’s lunch at the Chatswood Chase branch has only entrenched my (and my entire extended family) opinion that this is a poor representation of Shanghainese food.
I’m particularly angry today, because both dumpling dishes (pot stickers and wontons) arrived at the table all with holes. All dumplings should be ‘vacuumed’ because the pouch of soup in pot stickers is what defines their quality and if wontons have holes before being boiled or develop holes during boiling, the flavour of the filling is lost to the boiling liquid, leaving only a flavourless wonton.
