The usual song of the one-star take-out Chinese restaurant reviewer is the word “undercooked.”
“My rice was undercooked and there was NO COMPENSATION! One star.”
Poor little Karen’s $4 chow mein was ruined. lol.
When traveling, I read a lot of restaurant reviews to decide where to go and I see this all the time.
The old Golden Corral on Lawndale plus back parking lot.
As close as it is, I didn’t go that often, but when I did it was usually quite nice. Pleasant atmosphere.
Sometimes I rely on Golden Corral for the big salad bar when I’m traveling for work. Golden Corral often has amazingly good service.
