Came in after a bike ride for lunch at the recommendation of a Japanese friend who swears it's the best Asian food outside of NYC.
It didn't disappoint.
We were limited in what we could try since there was only two of us. So we ordered two different "set lunch" combos. I got the hot and sour soup, white rice with glazed beef and garlic green beans. He had the won ton soup, brown rice and Sze Chuan Chicken. Everything was very good and based on a decade spent in Asia, I'd call it truly authentic. I can't wait to go back with a few more people to share more of the spicier and regional Sze Chuan dishes.
The decor is classic, Mainland China. Very clean, bleached white tablecloths on round tables with classic landscape scrolls decorating plain white walls. I felt like i was 20 miles outside Beijing in the 90's.
As for the service, I'd also call it authentic Mainland Chinese. Yes, the staff looks very recently "off the boat". But while their English may not be perfect, perhaps we should appreciate the fact that they are serving really good, authentic Sze Chuan food for half of what it costs for the mediocre Catonese food found in most Chinese restaurants. A really good, three course lunch for two very hungry guys was less than $20 with tax and tip.
If you want slick decor, fast service and snappy, pan-asian food in over sized bowls, try P.F. Chang's and leave this place to those who don't mind waiters who can't speak perfect English.
As my Auntie Dot always says, "All the more for us".
