We have been there I believe four times. I usually have the Mediterraneo. I've never had a problem with them. The food that my wife and I get is the best Italian food we had in a long long time. We lived in Norco Ca., where they used to have a restaurant as good as this.....and they are as rare as hens teeth to find. Beautiful scenery looking out to the river and very pleasant surroundings.
Beekeeper is obviously the type of ignorant Idahoan that Chandler's attracts. I bet I will see him a Ruth Chris Steakhouse eating out his Asian child bride.
It hasn't moved, just a second location. We've been there 3 times along with many in Meridian and always a great meal and service,
Can't wait to try their downtown patio during the summer and Alive After Five.
Ordered delivery online. Very handy. Our "Hot & Spicy Chicken," "Pepper Beef," and "Crab Rangoon" arrived in reasonable time. Opened bag... no rice! Called the restaurant. "It doesn't come with rice anymore."
Chinese food. Without rice.
I will confess that the rangoon and entrees were awesome, and very large. But, there was something missing. Something so fundamental to the experience of chinese delivery that no matter how good every bite tasted, the missing piece was conspicuous and unsettling. The sauce was just laying there in the bottom of the bowl, waiting for something to soak it up. The generous pile of soy sauce packets laid on the coffee table, their obvious destiny denied.
Chinese food. Without rice.
UPDATE: Had a coupon, gave this place another try dine-in. Service was tepid, passive-aggressive, and uninspired. Food was hot and plentiful, but uninspired. And, no surprise -- despite the family meal we got, not one kernel of rice to be seen. One-star is plenty for this place.
UPDATE (about months later): We risked it again, and were disappointed again. Got wrong dish delivered, replacement took forever, food quality was terrible. Called to inquire about possible credit, was hung up on twice.
Fantastic meatballs. Great flavor and LARGE! Noodles could be thinner. Overall, a hit. Reasonably priced. Need to come to Boise.
This is a pretty good product but not outstanding. The noodles are incredibly fat and most people I know prefer a thinner noodle. Just make a few adjustments and you will hit it out of the park.
You should state on Your advertisements "Limited Delivery" as folks who are elderly and unable to get out depend on delivery services which Your ad states and this is false advertisement as You do not deliver to everyone.
I've only ever had the lunch buffet, and it's BRILLIANT.
Very good menu, excellent service even when it's really busy, rainbow pancakes for the kiddos, good eggs benedict, but the coffee is bad.
Always great beer on tap, great service, and good greasy food. Why go anywhere else?
