Food was fresher than some other experiences we had in the neighborhood. Like this place very much. Will be back

Good food and friendly staff but ordering delivery with a debit card or credit card is a hassle. You have to show your card to the delivery boy and let him write it on the receipt. Not vert safe in today's world. They have since changed to electronic receipts and still they require you to show your card so the delivery boy can write the full card number on the receipt. Makes zero sense. I now opt to use cash only when I order. NOT convenient.

This is not "gourmet" food...it is an earthy Spanish/Chinese restaurant at affordable prices & it doesn't pretend to be anything else. Normal, working class people frequent it. It has an "A" rating which is more than can be said for a lot of the more upscale ethnic restaurants in this UWS neighborhood. They even make a great cappuccino to order for you. This past Sunday, I had shrimp w/lobster sauce combo lunch because they ran out of shredded beef. On Monday, I went infor my shredded beef lunch. I had them hold the rice, but had lettuce & tomato which came with it, ordered a wel done, crispy egg roll, flan & espresso and a diet coke. The meal came to $14.15, I left a $3 tip. In a lot of restaurants that have "Grade Pending" or a "B" rating, you could easily spend twice as much. Where can you find a diet coke today for $1.90 or cappuccino for $2.50 or dessert for $2? No, it is not Jean Georges, or Telepan or Picholene or Per Se (nor is it expected to be) nor is it Amber with a "B" rating or Tenzan that has had "Grade Pending for ages. It's kind of like a Spanish/Chinese coffee shop & for just having a decent lunch or dinner, it is fine. Put a smile on your face & your servers will return it tenfold. Compliment the server who made the cappuccino from scratch & he'll be happy. Tip 20% & you'll get appreciation. Have fun...go casual & enjoy.

Been going here for years, mind you I live down the jersey shore. The dark fried rice is amazing and the fried boneless chicken is "finger lickin good" but the lemon deep fried pork chops are to die for! The staff always Remembers what we order and if we forget anything he adds it to the order. Very good food, the Latin food is why you should be eating there, however the Chinese is delicious as well.

No ambience and the food while fresh was neither chinese nor cuban. The shrimp w black bean sauce had fewer black beans than i have fingers on one hand literally 5 black beans and it was not a black bean sauce plus they dont serve sesame noodles & will not deliver 3/4 mi away, really?

The loma salteado is the best thing ever done with beef. Have tried many Chinese dishes, most were excellent. House wine not bad and very inexpensive. Host once remembered what we had weeks ago. Service is always good, presentation fine. We go there every year for Christmas supper. Delivery is prompt and reliable.

So I ordered "Chicken Chow Mein" and they gave me some soup-like chicken with greens in a bowl with dry "wax noodles" on the side? I am more familiar with the yummy Chicken Chow Mein with Chow Mein noodles...well this is NOT it. Delivery was very fast but I was not happy with the so called Chicken Chow Mein. My BF got the General Tso's chicken and that was good (not spicy at all though?). Food was very hot when delivered. I would maybe order from here again only with clarification of what I'm ordering!
