Near Bow St. Ma Po To Fu, 8.95, could feed 2. Silky tofu in savory - not too salty, sauce that's medium spicey with pork grounds, then topped with a sprinkle of sliced, fresh, green onions. Menu includes: Hot Pot starting @ 13.95, Hot & Sour Soup 2.95, and 21 lunch specials until 3pm starting @ 5.95. Regular menu dishes for chicken, seafood, and beef start @ 9.95, 11.95, & 10.95, respectively. Clean. Dark tables. Zen-ish. Gracious service. Ask them re: Ladies' Night. Will return for lunch or appetizers and cocktails.

TASTIEST ASIAN!

One more time a restaurant slides in. This time, id guess for the long haul. They softened up the previous cold,fluorescent decor, making this a way more cozy spot to enjoy some of the most delicious fresh tasting thai/szechuan/asian fare around,

The food was... Not very good. Not what I was expecting. When you order seseme chicken, you are expecting seseme chicken. What I got was not. It was small stripps of soggy chicken in a tangy, sour sauce with some seseme seeds On top. The broccoli was sour. I have tried this place a number of times, and different things... More

The wonton soup may be the best I have ever had. Set us up for being disappointed. My entree was good, but my wife's was bland and mostly celery. Pleasant atmosphere. Good prices. But won't be hurrying back.

The food here is excellent. The fried rice is not the usual greasy variety and the wonton soup is perfect on a chilly day. The only issue is the timing of the food delivery to the table; it arrived one dish at a time, and I had to ask about my final item well after everything else was on the... More

We recently stayed at the Wentworth and decided we wanted some delivery for dinner instead of going out or getting room service. The reviews for this place were good so we decided to try it. They delivered to our hotel in the time that they said that they would; the food was fresh and hot. We ordered chicken udon noodles,... More

Always fresh vegetables, still crunchy, not soggy when they reach you! Clean place with super friendly staff. I order delivery often and it's always hot and delicious!

This is by far the best Asian food in town hands down. Not only is there food great but they work very clean too. Having food allergies eating Chinese is always a bit risky. Usually if I can find something that won't make me Ill it has lost all flavor. However I have never had that problem here. All the... More

Although there are several fine Chinese restaurants in the Portsmouth area, this little spot on Penhallow Street truly stands out. It was lunchtime when I visited and many places can be noisy and rushed at this time. Not so here. Service was prompt and my selection was fresh and tasty. There are about two dozen lunch specials offered and each... More
