At the recommendation of my parents while visiting Tampa recently we decided to drop in here after our trip to Busch Gardens. The place closed at 10pm, and we arrived at 9:40. Our server was gracious and allowed us to be seated and eat. We started off with the crispy cheese puffs (aka crab rangoons) which were average fair, but the dipping sauce was nice. Tang and heat, love the sweet heat combo! My boyfriend went for the General Tso's chicken (white meat only is $1 extra FYI) and the chunks of chicken were massive!! I asked our server for her recommendation and she advised the Mongolian Beef. Tons of onions, a bit under-cooked for my liking, but the meat was THE most tender I've ever had for this particular dish anywhere I've been. The beef literally melted in your mouth.
A few cons: The staff was mopping while we ate.. Mopped all around us. I also went into the bathroom, and the staff member (male) saw me walk in, but he still walked in after i was in the bathroom a few minutes later and mopped. That was a bit startling and couldn't believe he did that. I had to knock them off a star for that alone...
The price was a bit steep, but the amount of food and quality of food you get was worth it overall. We definitely had to go boxes! The ambiance was nice and our server was great. The manager on duty was very polite to guests who were coming in for pick up.
A plus is definitely the drive through lane like at a fast food restaurant if you are picking up your food... We will definitely be back next time we are in Florida.
