Cherry Blossom Milford, now "Aden China" Post Reviews Here.

Thought the sign said opening today... but that seems a little quick.

  1. My co-worker and I were weekly visitors to Cherry Blossom. I was very upset, actually, when Cherry Blossom decided to close. I thought their food was fantastic and would give it about an 8.5 out of 10.

    Aden China, on the other hand, is a different story. We went there today. A lot of the food had a "fake" taste to it; things were way too salty; the sushi was mediocre at best. My co-worker's soup and beef w/ broccoli tasted like beef bullion cubes were tossed into it.

    I would give Aden China about a 5 out of 10.

      I agree with your rating. I too had food that was entirely overpowered by SALT I couldn't taste anything else. I didn't even finish my food. Very disappointing.

        Agree - Cherry Blossom was great. The food here now was terrible. The Kung pao chicken had a brown salty sauce, no spice. Any and all veggies were way overcooked and bland. We were glad to get a 20% discount for the grand opening but it wasn't worth it. How does anyone put time and money into a new restaurant and not learn how to cook?

      2. I had my Mother's Day lunch here, today. Everything was excellent and the waitress Bridget was very personable. I had Seafood Wor Bar. My husband had Mongolian Beef. He gives this restaurant a A+.

        1. Called Aden China for take out. The person answering the phone kept telling me they did not have dishes that were clearly on the menu. She did manage to find them eventually. She insisted they did not have any American food when I tried to order a hamburger for our 3 yr old. Upon picking up my order I showed her the menu and sure enough they do have burgers. The Chinese food we did get was awful. Pineapple chicken with only 3 pieces of pineapple tasted only of salt. Teriyaki beef was extremely tuff and the Spring rolls were cold inside with mostly carrots for filling. The spicy eggplant was pretty good. Will not go back. I would rate it at a 2 out of 10.

            1. Went for a "taste test" ... usually pick our favorite dish and try it at a new restaurant -- tried hot and sour sea food soup for two.... overpowered by hot pepper, almost inedible... not as good as the Sake House or Lotus Blossom... maybe we will return but with better choices locally why bother.....
