restaurant review: go for tea

Restaurant: Go For Tea
Location: 230 Commerce Valley Dr. East, Thornhill, Ontario L3T 7Y3
Telephone: 905-886-0221

Meal type: Dinner

Average price per person: $11-$25

What I ordered (shared between 2 people):
- Satay Beef with Fried Udon
- Shrimp with Rice Cake in Taiwanese Sauce,
- Chicken with Basil, Ginver & Garlic
- Bubble Black Tea with tapioca


I ordered the udon dish for myself. My fiance ordered the main dish combo - choice of 2 dishes for $14.99 that came with soup & rice for both of us. The result? way too much food. We ended up bringing my whole udon dish home. I'm not complaining, but next time we're definitely not going to order so much food.

I wasn't too fond of the chicken with basil dish, but then again I didn't order it for myself. I did REALLY like the shrimp with rice cake dish though. It was breaded shrimp on top of puffed rice cakes with a sweet & spicy sauce drizzled on top. It was a really different dish and I like all aspects of it. And the bubble tea was very good. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert though, because their dessert menu had a lot of great things to choose from. Next time we go it'll just be for dessert! They even have crushed ice with fresh mango and condensed milk (tastes so much better than it sounds) and condensed milk toast (a.k.a brick toast).

The service was sort of sketchy, but that seems to be a common trend with a lot of Chinese places I go to. The waitresses were a bit spacey, and seemed to be unconfident or not sure if they were supposed to be there to waitress. Very odd, but for sure we'll be going there again. The food is consistantly acceptable and there is a lot to choose from, and the prices are really good.
