Tempt Asian Restaurant - Chinese

After reading all the favorable reviews of Tempt Asian, we gave it a try ... ordered the won ton soup, beef chow fun, ma pao tofu, and Chinese brocoli in oyster sauce... these are all standard dishes that a good Sichuan restaurant should be able to easily do well ... sad to report that all were mediocre at best ... the best dish was the beef chow fun, and that did not have the smoky taste that a good "wet" chow fun (chow fun with gravy) should have ... the ma pao tofu was the greasiest we have ever had (the best we have had was at Wu Liang Ye in NYC) ... and the Chinese brocoli with oyster sauce was mostly large stalks ...

Full Key is better...

We've heard that the chef at Tempt Asian recently left. That could explain why it was less than stellar.
