It's in Williamsburg but only one stop on the subway from Manhattan. It's nothing like your usual Chinese restaurant but got a funky artsy vibe. Great pre dinner drinks at the well stocked very long bar. Great atmosphere at their communal benching tables. Always in a party mood there. Juicy buns are the most famou dish here but the chicken...

After a month in China this summer, we were anxious to compare the food at this Brooklyn restaurant. It was a hike from our place in Manhattan but well worth the trip.

Everything we got tasted like it was made fresh instead of in huge batches. The vegetable fried rice was some of the best I have had and the vegetable dumplings were great as well. For our main meal we got the tofu with black bean sauce and it was delectable. We were sat in the back room where it was... More

I ordered the special fried rice for 7.50$ which was well prepared . But I... More

all about sharing in here. You can't really buy a dish for one person that is a balanced meal. Go as a party and share lots of things.
