Tried this place out on the advice of some friends, and we've eaten there several times since then...Every single time, we were delighted that we went.
It's kind of a "hole", granted, and not all that easy to find, but it's well worth the couple of minutes of searching for it on John St. off 5-S.
Everything we've sampled there was perfectly prepared, and priced to sell.And the place is clean, and even has Victoria's Secret literature in the men's room, in case you plan to linger a while... (In fact, they include Gold Bond powder there, and various items that are surprising to see, but serve to lend a quirky sense of home to the place...I wouldn't touch any of them if I were you!)
I'd recommend ordering a full array of the $3.00 appetizers, especially the Asian wings and both types of satay, then progressing to the ginger salmon and whatever combination of noodles or what-not appeals to you. This place allows you to select from a dizzying array of spices, ingredients, and flavored broths. Everything we've experimented with here has turned-out to be exceptional...The only problem you'll have here is making up your mind as to what to order.
I hope people continue to eat out here, even in downtrodden Utica, because this place is a real culinary gem. (And cheap!)
