Good scallion pancakes. Dumplings were all dough with some overcooked meat. I couldn't eat more than one and threw out the rest.

We love No. 1! Super fast delivery and tasty inexpensive food! I love that you can order white meat chicken and request brown rice.

Great delivery presentation! Very neat, organized and tasty! The egg roll is the best. Delivery is fairly quick.

Agree with most of the negative, realistic reviews. However, No1 does certain dishes very well! Shrimp toast (if its not burnt), Cantonese Wonton soup, Peking Meat sauce w/Angel Hair is excellent (&difficult to screw up, for spicier palette). Also, Garlic Chx Wings. And my favorite: 3 Musketeers, steamed, sauce on the side.

I have never wanted to give a place 0 stars as much as this joint. This is by far My bf and I live in stuytown and we had never ordered takeout from here, and I'm surprised a place so bad can still be in business. We ordered a few different things because we were starving and every single freaking thing tasted bad. I only tasted the pineapple chicken which was bland and overly fried, the orange chicken which was so overcooked and overdone it was barely chewable and some noodle dish..

I've gotten takeout from this little place once a week or more for many years--and they continue to be wonderful. The lunch special chicken with garlic sauce (spicy) is so good, I actually sigh with pleasure when I take the first bite. The hot-and-sour soup is so rich and good, I think it's the best I've had anywhere--and I've had it all over town. They have seriously good cold noodles, too, and very good lo-mein. I usually get the vegetable lo mein and ask them to make it spicy. Not much room to sit, but most people take food out. (They also do really good fried chicken--I don't order it much, but it's great.)
