    Rude service + great food

    Living nearby I was regular customer. The food is great especially if you take some of the specials at the back of the menu. Unfortunately the service is sooo terrible that I won't go back. It's not that they are not attentive (though they aren't) it's that they are so rude and condescending that you have a hard time blocking it out. Oh well, there are many other restaurants nearby!

    Poor Service!

    This place, if they don't know you, treats newcomers poorly. We had to beg for a menu, service, water refills, and our lunch! It came late, but after everyone else around us had been sat and served. Too bad because the food was good. But I'm not sure it was worth it! The servers were condescending and just rude.

    Bad service, good food!

    The food is good here, I'll give you that. What I will also say is that the management will purposefully deny you the lunch menu for the dinner menu at lunchtime. For unknowning customers, they pay full price for what others pay the lunch price. My friend caught this, and tried to have his check adjusted. The management simply accused him of not wanting to pay the $3! SO BEWARE. He didn't expect it from a restaurant that has such a good reputation.

    It's all about the soup dumplings

    Oh dear. The soup dumplings are amazing! They look like little volcanos and they taste like heaven. So it's kind of like volcanos in heaven! Weird! But beware not to burn your mouth! I've never gotten the same entree b/c there are so many interesting things to choose from. I usually dont like chinese food but I love this place. Yum!

    Excellent

    Best Chinese in Town. You won't be disappointed. Try some of the House specialities and menu rarities. Be sure to steer clear of the "American Chinese food" section. Two words: Szechuan Peppercorns.

    We love the crispy tofu!

    It take a while to get in. People get irate over the wait. But who cares when you can get this food! As a vegan, their crispy tofu (canton cooking) is the best I ever had.

    There are few places like this in NYC

    Let's face it folks- NYC is running out of "finds" when it comes to food. Typically, when a place is discovered, and the food is rately highly- prices are jacked... or inconsistancy will follow. Here, however, I have to say during my three years of eating here-- the food was and is still amazing. The decor is nothing to write home about- but if you're looking for flavor, value, and speed... definitely eat here. FYI: the restaurant will often have special dishes, which are not on the menu. If you're lucky enough to be chinese, you can asking about them in detail.... I am not- so often times I will try to fumble and gesture and get them to mention these items to me... give it a try- it may or may not work... depending on the waitress
