Just came from dinner here and I am so glad I tried it. Not big on the communal seating but hey I guess hipsters enjoy these things. Shared the juicy pork buns, chicken wings and cucumber salad. Salad was just pickles, was expecting more of an Asian flavor but was just a half sour pickles which I like so no biggie. Wings were crispy good basic wings. Dumplings were AMAZING!!! So full of flavor, tender thin skin the only downside was I had to share them with mom and dad so I only got 2 :-) Lo mein was good, thick chewy noodles shrimp and I think chicken and pork. Chicken with Chinese broccoli was very good as was the pork belly. Only thing I wasn't a fan of was the moo shu pork, a huge portion but not enough pork and a little on the bland side. And they have a full bar which is a big plus for a Chinese restaurant. The servers were very pleasant which is a plus in this hipster overrun neighborhood where service can be very poor. I def plan on returning and trying a lot more of their dishes. Soup prices were a pretty high but I love a good hot and sour soup, if I love it I will have no problem paying $7 for it. That's next on my list of things to try.

I ordered some beef and broccoli and order of 6 chicken wings. Food came in pretty quick (AB 30MIN) however had no flavor and very small portions for big $$$. I suppose to get 6 pcs of wings and came in 6 but there where divided by 2 so basically you get 1 as 2. beef with broccoli...hmmm where is broccoli? I get only stems.

Delivery took two hours and they did nothing to ameliorate the situation.

The BF and I thought we'd try something new over our old (upscale-ish) Chinese standby for Friday night take out. We were mostly disappointed. The quality of the food was on par, but the prices were much higher. Comparatively, it was a poor value. The Crispy Chicken in Ginger - yummy, but yikes! it costs $15. Spring rolls $5 - 2 yummy, but tiny rolls. House fried rice $8.50 - this would have been good value if it wasn't completely bland. The "Famous" Spicy Kung-Pao Chicken $12.50 - boring and not spicy! Steamed Juicy Buns $6 - excellent, can't complain. Fried chicken wings $6 - boring and greasy. We were just sad to have spent $63+ for take out and got so little food that was mostly unremarkable in taste. The quality is however good. Still, we will not return.

Rivals Gourmet Chinese rests. up and down the east coast costing double. I had take out only, so can't rate service.

They are the best. I have never had a disappointing dish here, everything is awesome. Mostly the veggie dumplings.

I don't understand the fawning reviews of this place.I ordered Sweet n Sour Pork for delivery, waited about 50 minutes and when I opened the bag half of the sweet n sour pork sauce was in the bag, not the container. Then when I took the container out of the bag and opened it, it looked like slimy General Tso's chicken and was only 1/10 as flavorful. And did I mention, it tastes like chicken too? Did I get pork or chicken? It was really quite bland. For $11 it really isn't worth it. Maybe they were having a bad night but I'm not going to waste my money here again.
