A tip that I always give my friends as a Chinese person, if there are a lot of Asians eating in an Asian restaurant it often a good sign that it is a good Asian restaurant. From there, you have to be nosy and look at what all the locals are eating and what plates are on the tables, almost everything it is the dish that you should be eating. Aside from the namesake, my party of fellow Chinese friends and I wandered into Chinatown looking for a place to stuff our face with yummy food. Overall, the service was pretty typical you get tea (you have to ask for water) they take your order, they then the shuttle it out to you and you tell them when you are ready for your bill. My friends and I slipped in on a Saturday right before noon before the line of people started (which trailed outdoors), so we feel comforted that if people are willing to wait then it is good. We ended up stuffing our faces with the scallion pancakes, pork and cabbage dumplings, pork soup dumplings, hallow/morning glory vegetables, and the seafood pan-fried noodles - all really good and quite comparable to the food I grew up on and a $40 bill. Overall, good food - if you can time it right to not have to wait even better!
