Love it every time.

This is my favorite restaurant in NYC and maybe the planet. I have visited countless times and keep going back for more. I just love the spice and mouth tingling sichuan peppered dishes. Its just AWESOME.

This is authentic Sichuan including the soup dumplings which are excellent. We live nearby and go often for a change of pace. It's plain and little English spoken plus menu has some wonky options. Be brave and try or stick with more recognizable choices. The dried string beans with minced pork is a favorite. There are good lunch specials featuring... More

The place is small but very comfortable (and clean). We had 3 items - all were excellent. Above all is the professional but friendly service. Good prices!

A Chinese friend recommended this place as authentic. Lots of choices and very nice staff. The food was excellent. Be prepared, when it says spicy it really is. I had the Sichuan Cumin a Lamb which was very good and spicy. The shrimp dumplings were perfect.

We loved this place... the service was very attentive and friendly and the food was authentic! We wish we had shared a meal though as the portions were huge. Couldn't fault it so we'd go back there.

Absolutely authentic very spicy Chinese food. My husband and I always fight over the merits of various spices. And we both like it hot! He likes Mexican (yuk!), and I adore Chinese. We both enjoyed this restaurant.

This place is worth the walk. It will be closed for remodeling starting 5/1. The hot and sour soup was the perfect vinegary/sour/hot combination. Its done right and is delicious. Steamed dumplings were good. Double cooked pork excellent. Lots of regulars in the lunch crowd

My brother in law, who is a native New Yorker, brought us here and we had a great time. We had soup dumplings (crab and pork soup inside a dumpling), pea shoots, and eggplant in garlic sauce. The real treat was the braised lamb with turnips which was out of this world. It was all for a reasonable price as... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
