“Great Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

The scallion pancakes and dumplings with hot chili oil were the best I've ever had. Reasonably priced. Our server was very nice and remembered what we had ordered from two weeks prior - very impressive! Will be back again!

“Crave it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

This place is so awesome.
Love the beef filet with bok choy in chili oil. Outstanding sauce and the meat is so so tender.
We love the thousand chili chicken and our new favorite is the double cooked pork w capsicum.

We eat here at least once a week. We do both delivery and in.

Yum!

“Delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Small quaint restaurant with excellent service. Everything we ordered was delicious from the pork fried dumplings and honey glazes spare ribs to the Wok-Seared Filet Mignon with Mushroom & Spinach, the General Tso's chicken,and shredded pork with dried tofu and Asian chili sauce. You cannot go wrong ordering anything from this restaurant.

“Delicious Chinese Food in Immaculate Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

Very happy to have lunch here.

Service was great, swift and efficient.
Restaurant is spotlessly clean.
Shame about the ongoing construction outside on the block, but hopefully they will be done in a few months.

The hot-and-sour soup was mouth wateringly good, peppery delicious.

The scallion pancakes were hot, flaky and perfectly doughy at the same time. Yummy.

The dumplings in hot chile oil were perfect, flavorful, excellent, wonderful wrapper.

Will definitely go back for another meal!

“Spicy and Wonderful with unusual dishes.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

Talk to your waiter and collaborate on a great meal. For starters don't miss the cold scallops or spicy dumplings. The cold spiced beef and mini pork buns are also great tries. Entrees are well worth exploring with interesting fish, duck, and pork selections. A shredded pork with yellow chives and dried bean curd and a fish filet in a chili sauce were off the charts. A winner on the upper east side that should not be missed. The professional and helpful service is an additional bonus.
