Stir Fry at the Galleria
I ate lunch yesterday at Stir Fry at the Gallery on Kingston Pike. I usually eat at the Turkey Creek restaurant which is always good, but we were going to the movies at Downtown West. We arrived at about 11:45 and there were only 2 or 3 occupied tables. Our movie was at 1:10 so we felt like we had plenty of time. The waitress promptly brought menus and water and took our orders. I ordered spinach salad with grilled salmon; My friend Connie ordered moo goo gai pan; My mom ordered pad thai , and then we waited, and waited, and waited. Finally at about 12:25, the waitress came by to say that the food would be out in just a few minutes. The food arrived and the salmon was very good, as was the moo goo gai pan, but the pad thai was cold and glued together in 1 large mass of noodles. It was also impossible to eat because it was on a teeny plate. If our waitress had ever returned to ask if everything was okay Stir Fry could have fixed this quickly. Instead we were forced to try to get someone's--anyone's--attention. We did and they graciously offered to make something else (moo goo gai pan). It came out very quickly, and they took the pad thai off the bill. It all turned out fine, but I think the Stir Fry at Turkey Creek is much better.
