The Sake marinated “drunken” chicken accompanied by ponzu sauce, sweet crispy onions & Asian slaw was by far my favorite dish of the night. The chicken was so tender and had a delectable flavor. It melted in my mouth and finished with a nice savory flavor.
The Barbecued wild salmon was perfectly cooked and was good but not exceptional.
Our accompaniment was Duck fried rice. It was really, really, really delicious! Ah-maze-ing rice!
To top off the meal was a bottle of Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Claret, a smooth, full bodied cabernet sauvignon.
The location is a standout and the food is good too, but the staff here is also really exceptional; everyone is well trained, enthusiastic and engaging. Good service is often hard to come by so this is definitely one of the major pluses of dining here.
There are some improvement to be had but I do enjoy dining at China Grill!
