Least terrible dish at Spring Rolls?

Being dragged to a Spring Rolls outlet for dinner -- the location not my choice, but I need to go. So my question becomes: is there any dish that I can order that won't be absolutely terrible? Something plain and basic and edible?

I've had very bad experiences with the Pad Thai there in the past (ruby red and sour) as well as some chicken stir fry dish (drenched in so much oyster sauce so it smelled like low tide). Any suggestions to make me a little less miserable would be appreciated.

  1. I don't mind their spring rolls. Seriously. Last time I was there, I was starving, and the platter of assorted spring rolls actually hit the spot. But that might have been because I was starving;)

    1. I had some lettuce wrap things that were quite tasty when I was last there -- chicken, etc. with hoisin sauce that you wrap up in lettuce.

        Yep, these are decent. And quite filling for an appetizer. I had these with the tom yum soup last time, and I was pretty satisfied.

      2. As the other posters have said -- you're best sticking with appetizers. They do deep fried fine. But avoid any of the steamed dim sum. Yuck.

          I'd avoid the S7 Tom Kha Kai soup and the pan-fried chicken & vegetable dumplings (DS 34 on the dim sum section of the menu), too;)

          1. I always get the Chicken Shanghai Noodles and ask them to hold the chilli flakes. It's my absolute favourite, try it out! Hope you have a better experience :)
