How bad can a lemon chicken be?

By johnboy 1 June 2009 63

The Canberra Times has the curious case of Gordon’s Mark Wood who’s suing the Lanyon Valley Chinese Restaurant seeking $128,877 for a dodgy lemon chicken he claims they delivered the effects of which are still, he claims, being felt.

The company owning the restaurant is adopting a Bart Simpson defence:

    In papers filed to the court, the Wings Company Limited, which owned the Lanyon Valley Chinese Restaurant in 2006, denies delivering the food to Mr Wood’s house, denies that there was anything wrong with its meals, or that the plaintiff suffered any ill affects from eating its food.

Urk, recommending the slop at the Lyneham Chinese place? I seriously haven’t had a worse meal in my entire life… and I’ve had the sausage sarnies in Trafalgar Square at 2am, and “kebabs” elsewhere in London after serious nights at the pub.

Honestly, the worst “Chinese” food I’ve had in my entire life was there, and no, while authentic is nice sometimes, I’m not expecting it from the local chopshop. I do expect an edible chicken fried rice though. I can’t remember what my companion ordered, but it was not recognisable as food.

Yes – that is too true igglepiggle, and as I said, it is, indeed, a lovely place to dine locally.

I haven’t been to Vichans. I can’t see how any place that does 8 or so “cuisines” can do any of them well.
As for the Thai, I am comparing it to other outer suburban outlets. Sure, its not as good as what I used to eat in Newtown during the uni days, but when the competition is Kingsleys, Dominos etc, they are a shining light in the valley.
