Song Long

Last night it was Song Long, 1737 Section Road, 45237-phone 513-351-7631, with a small mob. We went with two sisters, both in their forties, and their families, children ages 4 to 9. It's hectic, but it keeps us feeling young, at least we think so, and that is why we develop young friends.
Song Long has several things going for it, besides free parking, no reservations necessary and handicapped accessibility. It is very good Asia food, well priced and served by extremely attractive sibling who deftly hand "the front of the house".
As usually happens, with a large party and Asia food, in this case Thai and Chinese, we ordered for the whole table and past all around. The three men, all of which have good apatite's and are good beer consumers, served as the "garbage cans".
Starting with summer rolls, veggies, shrimp, pork and thin noodles wrapped in a thin rice pancake, we proceeded thru one large bowl of soup, two orders of seafood and Chinese vegetables, pepper shrimp and pork, an order of spicy pepper pork, by consensus the best dish of the evening, Pud Thai, and a special order of Bar-B-Que pork, bean sprout and scallions. Is your mouth watering yet? Also we added on order of fried chicken for the youngest in the group. Imagine an Asian restaurant who has fried chicken. The food was all excellent, hot and tasty.
Our only problem was that when we arrived the place had more people than they had expected and so it was badly understaffed and service was non existent. A call home brought more sisters and then we were in business, as were the rest of the customers, both "eat in" and "carry out".
Total bill for the 9 of us, inculding food, drinks, tax and tip came to $150, which we split 3 ways.
