Stopped in because the menu was good, it was crowded, some Asian diners which, as you know, is always a good sign. Had excellent soup dumplings, a whole fish in spicy bean sauce (not black bean), and Chinese broccoli with just a few red peppers. Everything was so fresh and really good. Not inexpensive, but won't make a huge dent--

Good soup dumplings are hard to find. Amazing soup dumplings delivered? Even harder. Hot Kitchen does it! And because I gauge Chinese food based on hot and sour soup (which they do also very well) I give 5 stars across the board.

I was on the M15 bus and was starving to death. I needed chinese food, Sichuan specifically. Jumped off the bus and at 4pm noticed that the Lunch menu was on till 5pm and they served that lunch on Sunday. Only a handful do. 7.5 for most food($1 x for beef or shrimp) Even wide (Chow Fun) noodles are either $5 or $7. Will have it next time. H/S soup was very good. Pork with garlic sauce was well made with really good chinese vegs.The larger menu has some good choices and even has some items you might never have heard of before. Like the NYT review, I went on a 100 degree day and my food experience was hot but not that painful. Menu leans heavily on the Vegan side so non-carnivores have much to choose from. TRY IT ! !

Best Soup Dumplings after Joe shanghai's.Great noodles . The classic Sichuan dishes are wonderful, just check your heat level!

At least the food is better than the incredibly confusing menu.

This place is the real deal for authentic Chinese food. Was there last Friday night. The place was packed with young Asian men and women ( always a good sign). Have traveled throughout China and I love the cuisines, of China, so I am often disappointed with the Chinese food that is most commonly offered in the United States. Had four dishes, including the spicy shrimp with lotus root, which was one of the most delicious things, I have ever had in a Chinese Restaurant (even IN China). Service is a little crazed when the place is busy, but the waiters really hustle to do their best in the midst of the chaos. All is all, I am in love with this place. Will definitely return many times.
