After a long first day at the nearby Great Wolf Lodge, our family was worn out and a bit undecided on what to do for dinner. The general consensus was split between Chinese food and sushi. We found this place did both and away we went!
There is a very large Chinese buffet and I contemplated going with that for dinner. That is, until I saw one of the servers douse each tray on the buffet with hot water - an old buffet trick to keep things looking "lively" and not dried out. So, after that not so subtle maneuver, I went with the menu.
I went with the honey chicken - don't ask me why as I hardly ever order a deep fried Chinese entree. But, it looked like a mostly Americanized Chinese restaurant and this was the best I could come up with. My father-in-law went with the sushi menu and went with gyoza to start and California roll. That came out quickly compared to the Chinese entrees that were ordered for our table which included pork lo mein and chicken chow mein.
Each entree came with a choice of soup (egg drop or hot and sour) and crab rangoon or egg roll - each came straight from the buffet. You can try to run from the buffet, but you cannot hide! The hot and sour soup was OK, the crab rangoon had a hint of crab to it so there was that in Hunan's favor. My wife went with the egg roll and it was basically limp cabbage deep fried in the thickest wrapper I've ever seen.
For the most part, our appetites were sated and we were refreshed for more waterpark fun. The price was right and we were in and out in pretty good time. This would not be a return trip when we get to Traverse City again.
