Dirty frying oil taints the food, and wait time is ridiculous.. When I first ordered from China 1 around fall of 2007, it was great. I raved to my boyfriend and roommate about how tasty it was and about how the meat and veggies had great texture, which is something I all too often find Chinese take-out lacking. The next time I ordered it was not as good as the first, but still above average in my opinion. But now every time I have ordered since then, it has gotten worse. My boyfriend and I ordered from there this past weekend (July 2008) and officially are never ordering from there again. All of the food had the same weird taste, which my own experience working in restaurant kitchens told me was burnt and/or dirty, old oil used for frying everything. It tasted the way my small fry-daddy smells after we fry a few pounds of food in it, only worse. The taste was so gross that we could not even eat the food, try as we may. I am not going to pay money and wait an hour for dirty, gross food because they can't change their oil. Also, the people who work there are really nice, but delivery seems to take longer and longer every time, too, and the driver always has to apologize.
