We decided to try Leo Fu's again for the first time in more than a year. Our Asian food preference has been Vietnamese for the past while, but as a colleague who works nearby invited us, we were happy to give it a go.
We were very surprised to see how empty the restaurant was on a Friday night, but thought perhaps the poor Alberta economy was having an effect on their business.
While the food was not bad, it was not as good as we remembered from our past visits.
Regarding service - from our experience in the past, the service was always brusque but fast.
Not this time.
There were only two or three other tables occupied - yet It took 50 minutes before we even saw our first dish after ordering. It was lukewarm - as were the rest of the dishes we ordered - and the proportion of meat to vegetables seemed a bit scant. Good thing we like vegetables.
I had to continuously flag down the waitress for more tea and drinks as she did not check on us at all. There was an elderly lady and man at the table next to us, and the lady was GLARING at the waitress the whole time they were there as the waitress was all but ignoring them.
On the positive side, the Thai Style golden shrimp was awesome as always, even though there was so much broccoli it was crowding out the shrimp. We also enjoyed the eggplant from the 'Specials' board - although I thought it had a bit too much sauce, and the sauce was a bit 'gluey' in consistency. Scraping away the sauce was a good solution.
Maybe they were just having a bad night?
Despite the less than stellar experience, we will likely give Leo Fu's another chance based on memories of the good food from years past.
