Wang's Kitchen - Milpitas

We noticed this restaurant about three months ago. Happened to be in the area but just finished our lunch so we decided that we should give this restaurant a try later. Finally we got that chance this weekend. We did take out and enjoy it with some friends.

We got there around 12:30 and the restaurant wasn't busy at all. We looked at the menu and decided on five dishes. Paid for them and came back about twenty minutes later to collect them.

Chilli chicken (dry). Out of five dishes we ordered, both me and hubby agreed that chilli chicken was the best. It was pieces of boneless fried chicken with light batter. Those pieces than got covered up with finely chopped garlic, onion and chilli. Fragrant and indeed spicy.

Phuket fish was the second dish we liked. It's similar concept with the chilli chicken. Made of boneless fish fillet and coated with minced garlic, onion and chilli.

The other dishes were ordered were Szechuan lamb, Malaysian fried noodle (kway teow) and mixed Hakka noodle. None of those actually stood out as good. They were so so only. The Szechuan lamb looked nice with the orange color but tasted pretty one dimension - salty and peppery. It's missing MSG maybe ? Neither of the fried noodle had the 'fried smell' that is a must have for fried noodle. They were pretty plain and not a good value at all. The mixed hakka noodle supposedly came with chicken and prawn but we hardly seen them. Very tiny shrimp and small pieces of chicken.

Wang's Kitchen was labeled as Indian Chinese food. But looking at their menu, it seems like they wanted to do a lot but failed at it. I think they should stick to what they're good at. With that experience I guess it's hard for us to go back again.
Mixed Hakka noodle - disappointing

Malaysian Kway Teow - another disappointment
