The food here is GREAT! Quite authentic especially the spicy dishes considering I've had Sichuan food in China before. Its slightly on the oily side, but its Chinese so love it or hate it. The only drawback its the service. They are not attentive, I've to fight for my attention to get rice or water all the time. But considering it is cheap for the quality of food. I will always go back because you you can't find this quality of food in Chinatown.

They are very busy. Never expect a table just walking in during dinner hrs and they have a reservation number limit - I think five and above. Order take out from someplace else if you want stupid faux Chinese food. Eat food there that has odd names on the menu and you will be in heaven - the complainers get what they deserve - shrimp and Broc from here is a waste of time - go to another place and practice yelling "give'me shrimp(s) and white rice , and no vegetables Chino. And make it fast. I'll be back."

This is basically Chinatown in Chelsea, so forget about the service...that's just part of the deal. I find it almost amusing, even liberating, at how bad it is. The food, however, is excellent and authentic...if you know how to order. Ordering General Tso's Chicken and Sesame Shrimp here is kind of like ordering a Tex-Mex burrito and Chimichanga at a Mexican-Oaxacan place that's famous for it's Pozole and Moles. So...suck it up, don't be so sensitive, and order like a person who travels, but never goes on "vacation." Enjoy.

I just got my food and I took 2 bites and threw it out. I ordered the chicken in garlic sauce and it was overly greasy and not tasty at all. So disappointed. I had heard of this spot and wanted to try it- well, at least I know not to order from here again. Oh well. On to the next Chinese food place in Chelsea...

Having just moved to west Chelsea, I randomly chose this restaurant based on the decent reviews and close proximity to my apartment. WORST decision I ever made. The food was basically inedible. General Tso's chicken consisted of fried MSG and salt with a tiny piece of psuedo-chicken within it (even though I requested white meat). Shrimp dumplings came in a soup-y cup with greasy sauce and all 8 dumplings were attached to each other in a blob. I have never been so grossed out by a chinese food order, and I am by no means an expert in chinese food. Do yourself a favor and NEVER go here.

Made simple order for 2 small soups and sesame shrimp. Though we are vegetarians that also eat fish, we are usually easy to please. Delivery took an hour on a sunday night. When items delivered we were starving and dug in. Unfortunately when diving into the sesame shrimp, we discovered they delivered us sesame chicken instead. Called to request that we have a replacement sent with the correct item. Women began raising her voice and demanding that I ordered chicken. Calmly I explained that we don't eat chicken so would not have ordered. She began yelling and offered to send replacement, but we need to pay $3 difference and would take an hour. After the shouting, I was very frustrated and said just to send some one with a refund and we'd just return the food. Still waiting for the refund over 45 minutes later. Called and they said it would be another hour to just get our money back. We used to like this place, but after this treatment and the worst customer service ever, they have lost our business. You've been warned.

They have probably the best Chinese food in Manhattan. Even better than Chinatown places. But the service can use a bit of improvement.
