Wonderland -- lower haight, SF
My son and his friends love this place. I thought it was fine, similar to China Village in Albany, but not as quite as good. Lots of chiles -- in fact when the waitress wasn't serving, she was at a table cutting dried chillies with scissors (?). My husband and I had the onion pancakes and the cumin lamb. The guys had fried rice, Mongolian beef and a couple of gloopy looking chicken dishes. The vegetables seemed fresh, at least. The atmosphere is fairly upscale and the service is okay. I got the sense that our ticket was being ignored while they focused on takeout until a couple of regulars joined us and then suddenly our food was there. Since I'll probably be back, are there any specials I should look for?
