We were rambling around the back bay area and were quite hungry when we stumbled upon this restaurant cozily tucked away. It happened to serve real chinese food with wonderful fresh veggies, herbs and greens. Our selection of the swcehwan pork and chicken items was right. The staff was polite and friendly and food served quite soon was simple and delicious. Value for money at 58£ for 3 people.

We wished to try something out of the box for Chinese New Year's Eve and acceding to our eldest son's preference for spicy Sichuan/Hunan cuisine, decided on this eatery. It is tucked away in a basement location on Mass Ave off Marlborough St in Back Bay. Service is friendly and responsive, especially for a small family-owned restaurant. We ordered the Ma Po Tofu, the Twice Cooked Pork, the Fish with Stewed Vegetable Broth, Dumplings, Cured Beef and Cured Pork Loin. The Tofu and Broth were the highlights. Dumplings were average. However and regrettably, the cured beef and pork dishes caused our party who consumed it to succumb to food-borne illness. This likely had to do with the improper handling and/or storage of frozen/refrigerated meat. Very unfortunate as both sons experienced horrible stomach upset and 24 hour food rejection, with a very slight fever. Owner seems very earnest about trying hard to perform and improve to standard. So kind reminder that any and all food frozen once cannot be refrozen, refrigerated must be kept under refrigeration, and cannot be transferred back to violate this one directional edict.

We were really happy to find this little gem, tucked away in an easy to miss entrance a few steps below a residential building block on Mass ave between Beacon and Marlboro...terrific food, owner is from Qingdao; there are few if any really good Sichuan and or northern Chinese places inside the boundary of Boston proper (although many outside); small and frequented by MIT students right across river. The two of us normally share two dishes and an appetizer; the food was so good we had 4+1!

My son and I were anxious to try this former Brookline restaurant. Now on a cozy spot on Massachusetts Avenue, this eatery did not disappointed. We shared a delicious hearty hot and sour soup, special shrimp and Chinese steamed dumplings ( 12 to the order ), house special lo mein and Chinese eggplant with garlic. The food was great; portions were large. This is still a great Asian restaurant -- it is highly recommended.
