I agree, even with the new ownership and remodeling, it all looked and tasted worse. No wonder why they closed it down.
Terrible!! My family and I ate there two days ago and the food was old and dry. Everything was cold and and rubbery. The day after we dined there, my daughter and I got sick.
Check the dates on the other reviews, 2+ years old. There is new management and this now the best Chinese restaurant in town - bar none (I've tried them all)! Chinese, Sushi and even Mongolian Bar-B-Q. They are just completing a complete remodel and the place is bright shiny and all new! A MUST for anyone who loves Chinese in all its flavors.
I just ate at this restaurant this evening. After taking my 2 grandchildren to the restroom -- I was unable to eat. Their women's restroom was DISGUSTING!!! The filth was unbelievable. I asked to talk to the manager. When I told her that the bathroom was disgusting, she just looked at me and NEVER EVEN SAID A WORD! I want everyone to know this, that I can possibly make contact with. DO NOT GO TO THE "EMPIRE ASIAN BUFFET" on the corner of Academy and Vickers. If their bathroom is that filthy, just imagine what the kitchen area looks like where they are preparing the food.
Good lunch time choice. Big selection.
Souper Salad is the super-size version of what I wish I had in my fridge. Even though the offerings stay pretty much the same (except for their seasonal special salads and soup -- or baja fish tacos right now) you can have a different meal each time you go. I love the spring mix topped with beets, zucchini, radishes, cucumbers, green peas, sunflower seeds and balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Those are toppings I never think to have on hand at home but they are always fresh and plentiful at Souper Salad. I add a bowl of soup and have eaten healthy enough that I don't hesitate to finish lunch with a slice of their ginger bread topped with their soft serve (I think it's yogurt) and a little caramel and chocolate syrup drizzle.
I can only speak for the Garden of the Gods location, but the servers are friendly, the restaurant is clean and the pricing is good (you can even get it to go). Adult- and kid-friendly and I love an affordable place with a variety of good, healthy options.
