I've been eating at this restaurant for over six years, many times twice a week, with a few fortunate weeks where I was able to eat there three times. Never had anything there that I didn't like, and as a confirmed chile head, have enjoyed their ability to bring the high heat with every visit. Don't like spicy food? Don't worry, they've got other things on the menu too that I've seen colleagues order and like immensely.
Let's start with the lunch specials: you'll be hard-pressed to find a better bargain, with large portions of fresh, flavorful food. Like hot & sour soup? Don't miss it here, it is the best I've ever had. Other favorites from the lunch menu include ma po tofu, Zha Jiang Noodle w. Pork & Spicy Sauce, smokey hot chicken with cayenne, and beef with hot green pepper (feeling under the weather? The Zha Jiang noodles is a large bowl of noodles, ground pork, bok choy ++ that puts the restorative powers of chicken soup to shame).
From the main menu, personal favorites are GinGu fish fillet, old sichuan chicken, dried chicken with chili sauce, and Dan Dan noodles...do yourself a favor, try these - you won't be disappointed.
Service is quick, although meals aren't always brought out together (in other words, they serve it when it is ready, & don't leave it sitting under heat lamps). The place isn't huge, and waits at lunchtime for a table can run ~20-30 minutes, especially on Thurs & Fri. Earlier in the week is usually pretty easy to grab a table when you walk in.
