I guess I went in with too high an expectation and got knocked off that plataeu. The ambiance is great and the room is really cool looking. This restaurant put a lot into it's decor and it shows. We arrived a little before our reservation and were told to come inside since they were just finishing setting that table. We then waited 15 minutes to be seated. It's fine but they defintiely weren't just setting the table. Our table was an awesome round table with an inner circle that can spin to share appetizers, it's a great table if you have a large group. We ordered drinks and shortly after appetizers. The drinks were fine except one person ordered a bloody mary which was really subpar. Very thin and watery and not indicative of a great BM at all. He ended up sending it back. Appetizers were up and down. Edamame was decent but I've had better. Just steamed and very basic. Toro Tartare was surprisingly fishy and not nearly as rich and flavorful as we've had before. Braised Pork Bao was excellent. The pork was cooked perfectly and the sauce was very tasty. The Bao bun was exactly what was expected. The portobello mushroom fries were pretty good too but needed the sauce otherwise they were a little bland. Then on to entrees. First off, if a restaurant is not going to serve dishes at the same time they MUST communicate to the table. Our server never said a word and we literally had people eating entrees with 4 separate rounds of food. Most were done eating by the time the last dishes came out. The sushi came out first, and it was fine but had a "rolled and kept in fridge for a bit" kind of feel to it. I've had so many fresh amazing sushi rolls and these left a little to be desired. Then the ribs and orange chicken entrees came out. I didn't try the Orange Chicken but the Ribs were very tasty. They are fried so be careful if you don't like fried food but they are really tasty and I found myself wanting more. Then the Peking Duck came out. It was good but luke warm at best and it cooled off so quickly. I really wish this dish could be hotter but it pretty good overall. Finally, two of the kids at our table got their food last which was Pork Eggrolls and Dumplings. Everyone was done eating when these came out. Our server seemed pretty new and was a bit frazzled by us being upset. I asked for a manager who did come over pretty quickly. She apologized and did take a discount off but since we are DVC members, we alreayd had 20% off. The extra % amounted to another $12 off the bill. It's fine, at least they tried to do something. Our waiter disappeared after we complained. I think he was a little scared to come back to our table. I really wanted to love this restaurant and I may give them one more chance once I am in Disney again. It really needs to be better or I won't be going back again.
