Called to order take out and was told that it would take 45 minutes. Food still wasn't ready when I arrived, and was lukewarm to cold when I got home a few minutes later. The General Gau's chicken was tasty, but the portion was on the smaller size. The green beans and pork were also good, but had to be reheated. The spring rolls were greasy and not particularly appetizing. The calamari was tasteless. I was really hoping for a better meal.

Had take-out from here for the first time a few months ago and was really impressed. High quality Chinese that was fresh and not greasy and msg-ridden. It is not cheap - a meal for two will cost at least $30-40, but seemed worth the extra price. We tried it a second time recently and I was a little disappointed. The wait was long (~45 minutes) and food was not as good as I remembered.

To be fair, there was just a Groupon (which we were using), which probably explains the wait. We'll probably give it a 3rd chance, but hope it's more like the first visit.

FYI this is a takeout place only - there are a couple tiny tables, but not the kind of place you want to sit and eat a meal.

Happy to find newly opened 7 Star Street Bistro restaurant - the original was in Newton Centre - and we bump into people who will drive a long way for their incredible food - a few tables for sit-in - Mainly take out.
