On the result of a coin toss arty_tart and I visited this establishment for dinner. I figured that based on my earlier experience, Dinner would be a little better. Possibly pleasant. I was very very wrong.
Summary: I was not impressed and wont go back. I expect food and service like this from the local craptastic pan-asian lunch bar near where I work - and that's in an industrial estate - I do not expect it from a place that has won multiple awards.
First warning sign: No Asians in the restaurant.
Second warning sign: Tea Bag in teapot.
Third warning sign: Asked waiter for chopsticks TWICE.
Hot and Sour soup
More like "slightly salty seafood soup with mushrooms in it". No one puts frozen squid rings in soup. NO ONE! No sign of vinegar. Chilli had been waved across the top of the bowl.
Presentation Rating: 5/10
Tasty Rating: 2/10
Fried Wantons and Dipping Sauce
Overcooked, Waxy things with an orange coloured sauce pretending to be sweet & sour. Nothing good could be said about these.
Presentation Rating: What?
Tasty Rating: Not really
I was going to continue the review but honestly, even though we ordered off the "Chef's Speciality" list, the only thing that was good was the Honey Prawns, and that doesn't take a lot of effort.
Possibly the worst pan-asian style dining in Perth. Give me McDonalds over this.
Authors Note 14/05/2011: Return to the infamous Wing Bo. A caustic review (edited for spelling). The place even to this day leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. I was very polite to the staff despite their rudeness at the time and poor quality food.
I've since learned that a better measure of an asian restaurant is to order the more obscure traditional dishes and see what they do, and also not to take Gold Plate awards as a mark of a restaurant's ability. Its just a popularity contest rather than a serious benchmark of quality.
