Very nice venue; good service. BUT - although food QUANTITY was ample, the taste and cooking QUALITY was POOR! Egg-drop soup had an oily texture to it (probably too much corn-starch). Eggroll looked and tasted like it had perhaps been prepared and cooked once, then [over!]cooked/"warmed" again - very dark, too-crisp, brittle wrapping. Main courses - kung pao chicken for my wife; almond chicken for me - were POOR! (Both of us left about half uneaten!): Kung pao chicken had tasteless chicken, vegies cut too large and not adequately cooked (e.g. large chunk of carrot was essentially raw!). My "almond chicken" had similarly-tasteless chicken with each piece wrapped in heavy breading (KFC would be envious!); couldn't identify anything that might have been an almond - or any other nut; entire mess was covered in a heavy sweet sauce of some kind; ample supply of rice, but large puffy grains that were similarly tasteless. My wife is Asian. We often eat Asian food, at numerous restaurants, cafes and vendors. This was noticeably worse than chain-store Panda Express! Next time we're in Port Angeles, we'll try the Asian Buffet. We spotted it after eating; gave it a quick look-see, and its buffet looks excellent. (Curiously, GoogleMaps listed half a dozen Asian restaurants, but did NOT display the Asian Buffet, when I searched for "chinese buffet, port angeles, wa".)
