Re: “New Delhi Palace

At best 2 stars. Have had their biryani, that was ok, and a chicken dish that was inedible. No thanks.

Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

I always enjoy going to Delectables. Whether passing a rainy afternoon over good wine looking out the front windows onto 4th Avenue, or sitting with friends on the patio having iced tea and wonderful tastes from a gourmet board, or listening to live music during birthday dinners in the dining room. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The service is usually sparkling and fun. In over 30 years of serving Tucson I am sure there has been fluxuations but it is always my first choice to have a wonderful time.

Re: “Asian Bistro

Middle school teacher here on a time limit - called in an order for delivery at 10:45. It did not arrive till nearly 1pm - I had 5 minutes. I called several times, and the person answering just said 'hello!" and would hand the phone to someone who spoke English. The English speaker, instead of saying that they were sorry, corrected me - seems I ordered at 10:48... Just as well, the Tom Yum soup had NOTHING in it - just broth - I ordered veggie Tom Yum. There were a few threads of onion. I ordered for friends, and felt bad for them. Most of the dishes are a variation of: fry up some meat and dump a slightly different sauce on it. Orange chicken and Thai chicken nearly the same. Very soggy. I will never return...

Re: “Sushi Garden

You know, I really want to like this place. The new location on Broadway is nicely appointed and pretty comfortable. The food is decent for sushi in Tucson, and especially during their happy hour, the prices are reasonable.

But on both our last two visits, a few months apart, there have been significant mistakes, long delays, lost tickets, items we didn't receive but were billed for. The wait staff has always straightened it out, but it's dinner at a restaurant, you know, there shouldn't have to be a reconciliation process.

I hope Sushi Garden gets its act in gear, but that hope is fading.

Re: “The Original Mr. K's BBQ

I was excited to be taken here by my Fiancee as I am from the South and recently moved here and was craving good BBQ. Sadly, I did not find it at Mr. K's. The meats were average and the sides were incredibly bland. Wasn't thrilled at the thick slice of plain white bread that accompanied the meal as well. Lots of flavors missing at Mr. K's.

Re: “Panda Buffet and Sushi

Great Sushi for the price. Other hot Chinese dishes are very good as well. China A super Buffet on River road and Stone Road also deserves 5 stars. The new U Like Buffet on Wilmont just south of Broadway is just terrible thou.

Re: “Pho 88

The best pho in town that I've had and we're always treated well. The other dishes that I've tried were also good, which were mostly more Chinese style dishes that tend to work well for our kids.

Re: “Gee's Garden

Best dim sum in town. Not $ as advertised. More like $$-$$$. But here, you get more than you pay for.

Re: “Café Passé

My favorite place to enjoy a breakfast al fresco. The patio out back features several different outdoor spaces to choose from, all wonderful. The food is fresh and delicious. A full bar in a cafe is a little odd, but not a bad thing for those who want a mimosa or Irish Coffee!

Re: “Lotus Garden Restaurant

I moved here from San Francisco and have had a hard time finding really good Chinese food. BirdsEye frozen vegetables tossed with plain chunks of tofu in a salty brown sauce doesn't do it. I can't believe it took me this long to try Lotus Garden, but it's the real thing--snow peas and carrots were lightly cooked so they were bright and had a bit of snap, the sauce relied on the flavors of its ingredients and not salt for its punch, the tofu was sliced thin and lightly fried for texture and flavor, and the shrimp were huge. My new go-to Chinese place.

Re: “The Steakhouse at the Desert Diamond Casino

For my money, this is THE best steakhouse in Tucson for those who want to get ALOT of great food at an extremely affordable price!
