Just ordered delivery from here and was completely overcharged for below average food. Sketchy meat, "popped" and therefore soggy soup dumplings, vinegar-flavored dipping sauce for the dumplings and scallion pancakes that tasted awful....

The dishes I ordered were full of oil. Hunan Beef, Kung Pai Chicken and Eggplant in garlic sauce were all literally floating in oil.

The ability to get this caliber of chinese food delivered to your home is Manhattan at its most magical. Like other branches of this quasi-chain, the sichuan dishes are excellent and the american-chinese favorites come with extra "authentic" flair. However, delivery guys have developed a habit of indignantly demanding a larger tip regardless of the initial amount offered (e.g. $5 on $25 bill). I'm all for supporting delivery guys but it is annoying to have to prepare for an argument everytime they ring up.

I've eaten here a couple of times and have always had great service. At work, a couple of us order from here at least once a week- they have good lunch specials and I LOVE the Orange Flavored Chicken. Definitely recommend this place!!

I ordered food but they wanted to know how much i would tip the delivery person before they even delivered. Upon questioning them they said they need to know.

The pork dumplings are always a hit, and we usually order the spicy Dan Dan noodles which get that sweat going. The Gui Zhou spicy chicken is my favorite dish, and made with an incredible number of hot szechuan red peppers—just be careful to avoid them, and szechuan peppercorns which produce that nice tingly sensation in your mouth. There is also a great diced chicken with spicy green peppers. And, the chow fun is also well prepared. The spicing can be a bit varied, so let them know your preference.

I order from here all the time and am almost always pleased with what I get. The Dan Dan noodles, sliced pork with garlic sauce, Double Cooked Pork, Gui Zhou spicy chicken, sauteed baby lamb (this seriously rocks) and dried sauteed beans with chicken are just some of my favorite dishes. Surprise, surprise, they make Sichuan dishes the best, but most of their dishes are pretty decent. My only complaint is the service: the noise is so loud in the background that the woman on the phone can hardly hear your order and when she does hear you, she treats you very brusquely. But once you get the food, it's all worth it, especially the Dan Dan noodles!
