    Terrific Chinese

    Ate there last night with my wife and another couple. The dumplings were terrific, and both the prawns in light citrus sauce and the lamb dish were outstanding. Didn't care for the braised roasted duck, but that may have been a personal judgment. Service was slow even though the place was half empty. An excellent addition to UES choices.

    addictive!!

    Have eaten here at least 8 times now since they opened recently. Everything has been very good. The smoked duck is totally addictive. Try it-you'll love it. Great addition to nabe.

    The Real Thing!

    This new place, open opnly 3 weeks, serves truly authentic Sichuan food. And I'm a Chinese food maven. If you don't like spicey stuff, then stay away -- though they will vary the strength to your taste. The menu is fascinating, unusual, and just beautiful to look at -- I wanted to take one home! Ate delicious Hacked chicken, and Wok-roasted Lamb Ribs w clili & cumin (when have you ever seen that on a menu!) There were at least 20 other dishes that I wanted to try; but was solo. Will return with others. No liquer license yet, so BYOB. Have not done Takeout, I wish I could, I'm a Westsider who was slumming. But this is a real find. Trust me, just go!

    It is happiness in food form

    The food here is absolutely amazing. I ordered the Sichuan Pork Dumplings which were quite tasty and amazing for an appetizer. I also had the Wok Roasted Diced Chicken and it was incredible. I have eaten plenty of "spicy" food in NYC but this place is the only place that even tried to cater to my spicy cravings. The waters were exceptionally attentive and the food arrived just when it should. If you live or are in the Upper East Side I would advise you to check this place out.

    Spice to tickle your taste buds!

    The food here was absolutely delicious. They actually have three level of spiciness for those that want to kick it up a notch. The food was fresh, favorful and plentiful portions to share w/ the table. I would highly recommend the Wok Tossed Calamari w/ Hua Jiao-Spiced Salt. The menu has a wide list from your typical chinese take-out to dishes that are more authentic. The dessert, however, I would leave to the more adventurous if you are not accustomed to chinese desserts. The waiters were friendly and very helpful. They even came back to double check my order when I accidentally ordered an all chili pepper vegetable dish. Instead, he recommended the string beans w/ bamboo shoots, which was fabulous! Reminded us of home cooking. Definitely coming here again!
