Were regular customers of Orient House under the previous owners. The real Chinese dishes are what attracted us after experiencing Chinese from Szchechuan to Beijing to Inner Mongolia and OH made some of my favorites. Today was first time having their food since they reopened. Ordered takeout (we almost always ate in before) and was extremely disappointed. First, the traditional Chinese dishes were gone--was told they threw away too much food--??? Told the Americanized Chinese menu was the same, same cook. Well, something went wrong. Ordered the Chicken corn soup--smaller portion, don't strain your eyes looking for the chicken. Moo shu chicken--everything was so shredded you could hardly tell what was hidden under the overall brown mass of sauce--no discernible pieces of chicken, mushrooms, carrots, etc. although seemed like lots of cabbage and it had a definite and uncharacteristic amount of heat to it. Moo shu isn't supposed to have heat!!!. And looked like flour tortillas instead of thin wrappers and only about a tablespoon of Hoisin sauce. Spring rolls were mostly cabbage, with only flecks of carrot and green onion; could find no protein in them and I think they are smaller. The shredded pork with garlic sauce was a favorite at the old OH but this dish was shredded pork with a pinkish sauce that was as thin as water and tasted only of sugar--no garlic taste at all--and something shredded so finely I couldn't tell if it was green onion or cabbage or what and very little of that. If they have the same cook, they certainly have not kept the same ingredients and cooking style and this food doesn't resemble any of the great food served previously. We will definitely NOT be going there again. Bu hao! (Not good in Mandarin).
