DonRocks Posted November 11, 2012 Share Posted November 11, 2012 Not sure why this place is ranked so high in the Chinatown section. Definitely belongs below the few decent Chinese options on the list, based on my (one) visit. Because there's almost nothing else in Chinatown. I was there once earlier this year with goodeats, and we both agreed it was pretty darned mediocre - not bad, just mediocre. I guess I have more of a tolerance for mediocre Thai (thin, sweet sauces) than mediocre Chinese (thick, gloppy sauces). Let me know which Chinese places you think are better (although I can hear you rattling off Full Kee, Eat First, and New Big Wong as I type), and I'll definitely listen to what you have to say - I'm not opposed to downgrading this restaurant, especially if we can get a couple more data points; the problem is: what to move above it? These are definitely not restaurants I'm currently rushing out to monitor five times a year, but ... that's exactly what I should be doing, so please let your voice be heard - you have sufficient experience with Rockville Chinese and dim sum, and I respect your opinion. Another question: should Graffiato be in Italic? I think it's a borderline argument. When I ranked the restaurant #1 in Chinatown, I was (gently) accused of damning it with faint praise, and I don't deny that, though I think my review was quite thorough.
