When we arrived the waiter gave us a small table, we were only 2, in front of the kitchen and wasn't the best location but the restaurant was full, so I can accept it. We placed our order and the waiter wasn't so happy to answer to our questions about the food. As starters we ordered spring rolls that arrived... More

A colleague has dined here many times and brought us along for a treat, and what a treat it was. I'm told (by my colleague) that the restaurant takes its name from a famous liquor of the same name, which is made from made from five organic grains. In the spirit of adventure we tried a pour, and then enjoyed... More

We were 4 people, shared 2 appetizers and 2 main dishes (and 2 ordered soup in addition)= the food was delicious. The place is packed for lunch, plenty of Chinese, plenty of tourists, plenty of everyone. We ordered lemon chicken and vegetable lo mein as main dishes, and the lettuce taco thing and dumplings for appetizers. We had plenty food,... More

Horrible food.. very expensive for what it is. Chicken tasted extremely fatty. One of the dishes we couldn't eat more than a fork full. Such a shame, regret wasting one of our meal outs there

I am sorry not to be able to tell you the name of what I ordered but it was spicy shrimp and my wife had spicy pork, it was all delicious. I was recommended by a good friend that lived in China and I must say this was the best place in NY. The service is not that great from... More

Having lived in China and eaten in Yiben - the hometown of the drink that is the namesake of the hotel, I feel reasonably qualified to comment. Of course the food is not quite as spicy as it would be in Yibin or Chengdu but it is quite reasonable. Service was a little slow but other than that everything was... More

Their Mapo Tofu is probably one of the best in the City. Superb. It was as not as crowded as I imagined and they let me sit at the table and ordered while I was waiting for my friend to come. It is not cheap but given the location and the quality, it is acceptable.

I go here every time in town on business. The food is delicious and the service is decent. The room is kind of cramped when the place is busy. I recommend the chilled noodles, they are great.

It's been a while since visiting here and I still enjoy this Restaraunt very much. Had the full bodied hot and sour soup, filet mignon and shrimp dishes. All quite tasty. Make a reservation for lunch or you will wait. Located just a few minutes from Times Sq. Look up to catch the sign!

We ate here for dinner during a day trip into NYC. My uncle, who brought us, has eaten here many times before. Based on his recommendation, my boyfriend ordered salt and pepper prawns, which were excellent. I ordered the pan fried noodles with veggies, which was amazingly good. All told, we had a very good meal with no food left... More
