I've been to this place ~10 times and had a great experience every time - ok, maybe not always great service, but unfailingly fantastic food. They're best at the sichuanese stuff, but almost all is good. Get the garlic or auzhuo fresh chicken, the eggplant with garlic sauce, the sour string beans with minced pork, the steamed whole fish. The soup dumplings, while not sichuanese, are really good here, too. Can't really go wrong!

We live in the neighborhood and have ordered takeout a few times. I've always found the food to be average but thought it might be better if we sat down there. Tonight we did and the service was very poor. We were there easily 45 minutes before closing but when I asked for another minute to look at the menu I was scolded because "the kitchen is closing" -- yet they continued to seat other parties. The waitress was rude, had to be asked to clear away starter items when the main course arrived, and we were rushed out the door as quickly as possible.

The food is terrific, and the extensive menu even includes a group of dishes served with truly fresh chicken (i.e.: it was alive that morning). One does not dine there for the atmosphere, and the staff can be rather gruff, but your water glass will never go unfilled, and for delivery you can't beat it.

Be ready to line up to get seated if you don't make a reservation.

Am I the only one that does not think the food here is that great? I've only ordered from here twice but both times it has been mediocre. This soup dumplings are only ok and do not compare to Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown. The other dishes I've tried have not tasted authentic.

This is among the best chinese food I've ever had. Try the soup dumplings. Just beware, the service isn't great and delivery can be very slow.

The service at this restaurant is poor and I wouldn't go back because of it. The food is very good, however. Order take out b/c you don't want to deal with the service. Our waitress started arguing with us when we told her that she delivered the wrong food to our table. We politely said that it wasn't what we ordered and she started yelling and telling us that we were wrong and to stop lying! It was almost funny... I have never been treated this way in a restaurant and the funniest part was to watch the table next to us try to flag her down to tell her that is was their food. People make mistakes, but I don't enjoy being yelled at when paying money for dinner. It is too bad because this would be a great spot if they could do something about the service.
