I recently found out that Emerald is offering a special where you get order 4 dishes for $24.99 or 7 dishes for $39.99. I believe the deal has been running for a while, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been to Emerald so I didn’t know about it until my uncle visited a few weeks ago and we took him there.
This weekend, we went to check out the special deal. I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few options on the special menu. And the prices are even cheaper than their previous late night menu, plus you don’t have to wait until after 9. I also noticed that during the week, they now have a dim sum special as well where all dim sum prices are priced at the price of a small dish. Here’s the special menu:
We opted to order seven dishes. We ordered:
Honey walnut shrimp
Everything tasted pretty good. When the food arrived, I thought the quantity was pretty decent, but we had seven dishes and eight people and polished it all off, so I guess maybe the quantity wasn’t as big as I thought.
The service was the only really bad thing. Our empty plates kept piling up and the waiters didn’t take them away. The waitress would bring our food over but told us she was too busy and that’s why she couldn’t take the plates away. I didn’t understand why she could bring the food, but not take the plates back with her on her way back to the kitchen. And it wasn’t even that busy.
Other than that it was a pretty good experience. It’s a cheap meal, with decent food, and decent variety. We will probably be back soon to try some of the other offerings.
