Re: “Golden Phoenix

I get the impression the buffet is leftovers from some other restaurant. I would consider going hungry instead of dining here again. It is not just one thing either. Dirty place, low quality food, everything seems to be at room temperature except for a cold glass of water.

Re: “C. I. Chu's Mongolian Barbecue

Bar far the best Mongolian Grill I have been too (I travel a lot). They serve the correct noodles for a mongolian bbq (some restaurants serve spaghetti noodles), veggies are fresh, good choice of meat, bowl size is perfect, sauce selection is great, and the customer service and cleanliness of the restaurant is a plus.

Re: “Great Wall China

Tucson doesn't have any "top" Chinese restaurants, and unfortunately, the Tucson Weekly doesn't have any reviewers that know the difference between Chun King in a can and Alpo.

Re: “P.F. Chang's China Bistro

"one of Tucson’s most popular places to be seen"

I rather eat great Chinese food than be seen - and all you can do here is be seen and buy over-priced, mediocre, not really Chinese food. Save you image and go to Vancouver, San Fran, Hong Kong, etc and learn about real Chinese food. You don't need "a chic, eclectic ambience" - you need to know what real food tastes like - or be seen at MacDonald's.

Re: “C. I. Chu's Mongolian Barbecue

Yeah, that's about as 'Mongolian' as McDonald's is Icelandic....

Re: “Guilin Chinese Restaurant

After moving to Tucson, one of the stranger things about the towns edible offerings was that despite being able to stumble into fantastic Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese restaurants; several of the Chinese places I tried made me reconsider swallowing their food. Guilin is a -very- happy exception. The food was fantastic, although uninspired (at least on the non vegetarian and vegan menus), but I am happy enough to find a place with decent Kung Pao and General Tso's. The food was fresh, the meat was not rubber, and the veggies were crisp yet cooked. The only reason I don't give 5 stars here is that the staff was fairly pushy, and the restaurant wasn't exactly packed. Was asked 3 times within a minute if I was ready, and this was less than 5 minutes after I had sat down.

That said, definitely worth a trip and I will be heading back.

Re: “Harvest Moon

Affordable elegance, reasonable prices, outstanding unobtrusive service, high-quality lovingly prepared food, SPOTLESS demonstration kitchen, warm hospitality. ALL of these factors add up to warrant a visit to Harvest Moon Chinese Cuisine in Oro Valley. Please put this restaurant on your "Must Visit" list. You won't be dissapointed, I assure you. Please note: Harvest Moon is moving to "The Marketplace" very near their current location. The target date is end of May, to the first week in June. This is one of those great places that, as you're getting into your car after a wonderful meal you'll already be thinking about "Next time, I'd like to try the...."

Re: “Panda Village

I just finished a take-out meal from Panda Village. I ordered two seafood combination dinners with side orders of pork spring rolls. The seafood was covered with a bland translucent sauce with no flavor what so ever. And funny that the previous reviewer mentioned her curry being filled up with water chestnuts, because so was mine. Aside from literally a cup of canned water chestnuts, of the essential ingredients that I would assume would be in this dish, I counted three shrimp, two slivers of imitation crab (with a fishy, uncrab-like flaver), and fleck or two of scallops. I really feel like I got ripped off big time. I won't be patronizing this place again.

Re: “C. I. Chu's Mongolian Barbecue

Yum! When Filling the bowl make sure and leave enough room for the meat at the end of the bar... or better yet start with the meat - compact it as much as you can then heap the bowl with veggies before going to the seasonings. This really cooks down so don't be shy.

Re: “China Phoenix

This is for the "I like Chow Mein out of a can" crowd. I ordered takeout last Sunday with Kung Pao Chicken (very spicy please) and Cashew Chicken. Other than for a few stale peanuts v. cashews, and a slightly different color, we had two versions of chicken vegtable stew. Peas, celery and carrots in Kung Pao? I don't think so.

Re: “Dragon Village Restaurant

Hands down, the best, most friendly and flavorful Chinese cookery to be found in the greater Tucson area. Mary, the proprietor is a jack of all trades and Master of ALL. She handles front of house, waitstafffing and can throw down a mean fried rice too! Most of the other Chinese eateries offer dumbed down, bland food. Not so at Dragon village. Instead, you can smell the amazing aromas of sesame, hoisin and hot chillies from a block away. The tell tale sign of proper chinese cookery is how they do with won-ton soup. DV's soup is seasoned correctly and the wontons are light and succulent...not the weapons-grade taffy-goo found at other Tucson restaurants.

mary and the Dragon Village team do it right!

Re: “Panda Village

We ate at Panda Village the other night. When we entered the restaurant, it was empty which is usually a bad sign. It was. We ordered iced tea which had a funny taste, I sent mine back. Then when our dinners came, the curry beef was filled up with water chestnuts which is odd for a curry dish. The 'three delight' was terrible, the chicken was spoiled. The hot and sour soup was OK but not exciting. We are unlikely to eat there again.

Re: “Golden Phoenix

If you're talking about that place on 22nd Street in Tucson, AZ. I ask: Have you been there lately? The food (Buffet) is usually room temperature and the staff usually has a very bad attitude. The one server never seems to wash her hands and I have in the past seen food being cut up on one of the tables in the dining area.

As for "decore", the place is dusty and dingy. Not a place I would go if I wasted to be sure of not becoming sick later on.
