My wife and I stopped in the Dao Palate on the recommendation of our daughter, who lives nearby. It was (early) lunch time, and, not only were there no customers, there was no staff. I called "hello" several times, and I finally had to knock on the kitchen door to find someone to take care of us. I had sweet and sour soy protein, and it was much more sweet than sour. My wife had vegetables with brown sauce, and she enjoyed it.
