    Thassss right

    After the "sub-paHr" review I had to step in and back up the joint which I do love so dearly. The service is wonderful, certain food is greasy but not any more than any other Chinese restaurant in the U.S. has. The General Tso (respect the greatest General, dear) is cooked to perfection, the hot'n'sour is never disappointing and if you feel health conscious you can always go with tasty veggie soup and sautéed tofu. Like I said- yes, certain dishes are greasy (what did you expect- a fat free Gen. Tso made with Splenda?!) BUT----it's never subpar )))

    a diamond disguised as a hole in the wal

    The guy on the phone might be short, and quick talking, but he has a mind that never forgets, and he greets everyone with a pleasant "hello my friend" He is a man that , when he takes your order over the phone never messes it up, and is generally the only one that takes the orders. This is for takeout or delivery only . You get a lot ( and I mean A LOT) of food for a little money and the food always tastes fresh. I have eaten from this place for now close to seven years and I have rarely - almost never, had to send anything back. It is a hole in the wall chinese take iut delivery place that is a quintessential NYC diamond in disguise

    Ordered (literally) over a hundred times from here over the past two years. Never once has there been a mistake on my order and the food is almost always delivered in less than 15 minutes (9 blocks away). Food is consistently hot and fresh.

    Best Chinese in the area (tried it All!)

    When we first moved to this area, we took a sort of "Chinese Delivery Tour" & spent some time ordering the same dishes at all the neighborhood restaurants to compare quality & taste. This was the hands-down winner. I tend to order steam seafood & veggies not only is it a fave dish, but you cannot hide the food under heavy sauces if you get it steamed. No. 1 had the best, freshest, tastiest food. I've since tried a variety of dishes here, they've all been terrific. Priced so inexpensively, ultra-speedy delivery & friendly service - what more could you ask for? Please don't be turned off by the no-frills storefront... No. 1 is WONDERFUL!!
