My wife and I were baby sitting for our daughter and thought a take away from this shop would be a treat. Wrong! My wife had braised brisket with rice (154) and I had house special chow mein (87) The quality of the meat was appalling. The meals lacking in flavour. My chow mein was just a ton of noodles...
