Very odd review/hack job that slams the restaurant and much of the service and food (greasy scallion pancake and unseasoned soup) and then goes on to recommend it.

It's funny how this paper reserves some of its harshest and biting criticisms for local privately-owned restaurants that employ people at rock-bottom wages and very little genuine detailed criticism for the city and school districts' policies, finances, and very generous public employee salaries and benefit packages.

Welcome to Mountain View!

I feel sorry for the staff there. Many of them are foreign born and trying their best to do a good job. You shouldn't be so harsh.
