First of all there are three maybe four things on the menu they do well and they do them real well- pork chops, chicharon de pollo, avocado salad, rice and beans, and sometimes the roast pork or steak and peppers and onions. These are tried and true standbys at a place I consider an uws institution. Go there for these things and these things only and don't complain about the mediocre chinese fare on the menu that you shouldn't have ordered in the first place.

Amazing food...especially the rice and beans, chicken, and plantains...all for amazing prices.

Every since this place was cut in half, the quality of its food was reduced by half. The won ton soup smelled and tasted like it was fermenting-- the beef was cooked and recooked- old and tough. The yellow rice was ok, but who can't make rice with yellow dye? My advice, stay away!

I just tried the sesame chicken with yellow rice. Slightly spicy, but i loved the taste. The chicken was a bit tough though. I am keen to try other dishes on the menu, and will give this place another chance.

The fried rice was excellent. That is the only good thing to say about this place. I ordered chicarrones or chicken crackling and they brought me chopped up fried chicken!! There was literally a chicken leg on my plate - that is not crackling. Not to mention the chicken was old, stale, dry and tasteless. The tostones were as thick as phone books and over cooked with dried up garlic as toppings. My friend ordred the steak which arrived dry with huge chunks of raw onions, also thickly cut. Also, the food arrived 60 seconds after placing the order, obviously it was sitting around. We had to hunt the waiter down to get water. Order only the fried rice here!!

I orderd the Cuban Pork and not only was it hard as a rock and dry as a bone it looked like t was around awhile. Iasked for some kind of sauce to make it edible and the waiter gave me a copule of packets of duck sauce. It didn't help. When I complained he just said that's the way it is suppose to be. The dentist's must do very well in Cuba. Stick to the Chinese Menu.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years. It is my favorite food in the world..But ever since they made it smaller it has never been the same. The food is dry , unseasoned and uneatable. Today I threw the rest of it out ..I will never go again ....Where will I go now? ..
