A group of four senior women got together there for dinner. The food was excellent, except for one dinner that had to be returned because it wasn't made properly. The situation was corrected immediately. We were all very happy.
Despite the screwed up reservations by Open Table who switched our 6PM reservation to 3PM and nearly cost us entry into one of the finest Asian restaurants we've been to in many a year, we survived. Manager/owner Wayne took care of all that and ushered us to our table and smoothed everything over. He didn't have to do much as his restaurant's food did all the speaking and smoothing. I tried the grilled whole squid appetizer and I have to tell you that you would have to go abroad to get anything that good. Kung Pao Chicken, my wife's favorite was perfectly spiced with peanuts added over the serving. Pork fried rice (am I being a bit pedestrian?) was the perfect comfort food. But the Taiwanese noodles and seafood took top honors, a bit like Singapore noodles but without the curry. If you ever go to Tallahassee and are in the mood for Chinese, Azu Lucy Ho's is the place to go. Too bad they don't have Pad Thai and they shun peanuts in the mistaken thinking that a lot of people are allergic. People can choose not to eat the peanut dishes, you know? All in all a 5-star performance.
Scallion pancakes were greasy and light on scallion flavor compared to authentic ones; served with a delicious Spice Coconut Curry Sauce that overtook the pancake flavor. Salt & Pepper soft shell crab signature dish had a heavy fish flavor (would not order again), fortunately the waitress switched to out for me to the Salt & Pepper Jumbo Shrimp which was much better and had good flavor, if a little salty (would order again). Taiwanese Style Rice Noodle was very light in flavor/sauce and was a nice dish (would order again0. Crispy Jumbo Scallops were so spicy that you couldn't taste the scallops (would not order again). Our waitress recommended the options we liked. I would return.
We had a lunch reservation for 11:30, arrived at about 11:45, but didn't receive our food until about 12:40. We had to rush as much of our lunch as we could eat in 10 minutes and race back to work. I can't imagine the service is this slow all the time (or they wouldn't be in business).
However, our particular lunch experience was very disappointing.
The food was outstanding and the service was great!! We love this place.
Red Dragon and Ichiban rolls are OUTSTANDING!
We have chosen Azu for New Years Eve for the past few years. The food is outstanding and plentiful. Our server, Hope, was attentive without being intrusive.
The best, freshest sushi around!
Great office lunch!
Excellent sushi and other Asian dishes. Will definitely go again.
