“Excellent Chinese Food in a Midtown Manhattan ”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Picked this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and Urban Spoon. One of the the best Chinese restaurants we have ever eaten at. It deserves its Trip Advisor place as one of the top ten percent restaurants in Manhattan. Most customers were Asian which we take as a good sign that the food will be good. Food is very tasty and comes in large portions. We were not courageous enough to try some of the very authentically Chinese fare, but for those who are, the menu offers a large selection of Chinese delicacies. The egg drop soup and the beef shon fun were our favourites. Lunch for two us that included, 2 appetizers, 3 entrees and two soft drinks was $50. Will definitely go back.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

They have the best Mapo Tofu and Bamboo Shoots in Chili Oil (cannot remember the exact name on the menu). The food is spicy enough and full of flavor. Cold Noodles and Dandan Noodles are also good. However, we don't like the Braised Fish in Red Soup so much.
They do accept credit card. And they also offer a discount if pay in cash but not every time.
Although they also offer plenty of American Chinese Food like General Tso's Chicken, Chicken Broccoli, etc. I would never try those.

“great Chinese food near Times Square”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

This review is for the 242 W 56th Street location (between 8th & 7th Avenues); not sure if they moved or is this is a sister location. The Chinese food here is very good - moo shu pork w. pancakes (tasty), General Tso's chicken (nice white meat portions); also ordered fried dumplings to go (good quality). Nice atmosphere and service. They can adjust spiciness to your liking.
