Restaurant Review Roulette: Spring Rolls

Disclaimer: I’m mailing this one in, folks.  I took my daughter to Asheville last night to see Elton John, and she insisted on getting back in time for her 8 AM class today.  So after a 3-1/2 hour show, we stopped for the night in Hickory at 1 AM, got up at 4:50 AM and made it to Raleigh at 7:40.  I’m damn tired.

So, this week’s review is of a restaurant that I should have known about — it’s in Raleigh’s North Hills — but I hadn’t heard a thing about it.  It’s an “Asian Fusion” place (their term, not mine), called Spring Rolls.  It looks to be fairly fancy.  It tries to be lots of different things.  I’m not even taking the time to check out Yelp or Chowhound.  I only looked at two pages of the menu.  And I’m guessing 3.5 stars.

Here are the odds:

5 stars — 25 to 1

4.5 stars – 7 to 1

4 stars —  3 to 1

3.5 stars — 3 to 2

3 stars — 2 to 1

2.5 stars — 5 to 2

2 stars — 4 to 1

1.5 stars — 8 to 1

1 star — 27 to 1

I don’t have a clue, so help me out this week.  Is it good?  Is it just another “OK” fusion joint?  And how many stars do you think it’ll get.

And I promise I’ll write some more soon.  I’ve got lots of items in the works, but I’ve been too damn busy to write anything.  Thanks for hanging in with me.


Edit, November 19, 2010: Spring Rolls gets a 3-star review from the N&O.  I should have done some research.

    Their Wonton soup is fantastic, but I really haven’t liked the entrees at all. My bet is that they won’t be here when Spring rolls around.

    I ate there yesterday. Bleh. I didn’t know that restaurants still used jarred, tasteless garlic in dishes. My vegetables were at least fresh, but my signature “spring roll” tasted like it had been bathing in oil and was gradually fried.
