CHINESE RESTAURANT SYNDROME a.k.a MSG?

Picture
 Customers requests for No Msg ADDED would gladly be taken with your orders with in reason.

   Certain products that we use may have small traces of msg or similar msg compounds without a North American standard labeling on them . We as a staff and company of 20 plus years take pride in trying to consistenly purchase items our customers would appreciate more.  But unfortunately certain asian products used to produce asian  foods, and flavors are not made in north america. Also they are not reproduced as "NATURAL" or not even relabled for nutritional purposes. So with that being said, we Advise anybody with SEVERE MSG ALLERGIES to try our food at their Discretion.
  We as a Restaurant know we cannot please everyone nor do we believe it is possible to please a 100% of our clientel.  To try to find a balance with our customers needs and preference is a routinely tough balancing act. Why you mite ask? Because not everyones tastes and preferences are the same. Hence the consistent balancing act to try to please the masses and the individual.   But we as a restaurant take great pride in knowing that we will consistently try. That is the least we can do for our customers.  All we ask for is some understanding.
 
Thank you KWGardens
