Was there with a group of 4. Friendly staff but I really don't see what the great ratings are about. The place is a bit dated and worn. The food was what you would expect at a suburban Chinese take out restaurant. The egg rolls had a freezer burnt taste. The wonton soup was extremely salty and was not fresh. It appeared to have been made with chicken soup base and a lot of it. The dim sum appetizer was ok but some of them were not cooked all the way and were doughy. The mixed seafood entree was the best part but contained small pieces of shrimp, scallops and one small rubbery piece of lobster. The sauce was what saved it. Sorry I would not go back. Again why this place is so highly rated is beyond me.
Very good, fresh, Chinese/Thai/Japanese food and definitely the best value restaurant in Cape May, hands down! We've been eating here every trip to Cape May for the past decade and have never been disappointed...try them!
The previous reviewer is mistaken. I have been a long-standing customer of this restaurant and even followed them over from their previous establishment. I eat there year-round because they are the best. If the previous reviewer had taken a closer look, they would have realized that the awards were for the previous restaurant owned by these people, not a previous restaurant in the same location. Also, they would have noticed that the Cape Orient actually did win similar awards. They are also hanging up. I highly recommend this place because they have the best quality and best value in town.
While the wait staff was perfectly nice and accommodating, the food was horrendous. I ordered a salad with ginger dressing, but it came drenched in out-of-the-bottle Russian dressing. We ordered the sushi, and it smelled like the fish had spoiled three days earlier. I wanted to like the place, but I just couldn't -- and when the check came, I felt robbed. The kicker was the sign over the cash register, which at first glance appears to indicate the restaurant was voted one of the top-50 in NJ, but upon closer inspection reveals that the restaurant was opened on the location of a restaurant that was *formerly* one of the top-50. The restaurant was clearly designed to take advantage of tourists. Avoid avoid avoid.
