“Very good, inexpensive, close to the Promenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I've eaten at this location several times on trips to Brooklyn from out of town. It's in Brooklyn Heights just a few blocks from the Brooklyn Promenade on Montague. It's not much to look at - you would miss it if you didn't notice the sign taking you town stairs to get to it.

The food is always very good. Lemon Chicken, Chicken and Peppers, and the spinach with garlic (beautiful, flavorful garlic gloves) are our favorites. The vegan in our group loves the choices.

The portions are quite large and could easily be split between two people.

“Delicious food, pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

This is the 2nd year in a row that we have eaten at this restaurant while visiting Brooklyn. If not for the neon sign you might miss it since it is below ground and you have to go down stairs to reach it. The restaurant is tastefully decorated - light wood panelled walls with dark wood tables, numerous pictures on the walls. The service is always very good but the best part is the food, which is delicious and reasonably priced for New York City. We have had various shrimp, lo mein & egg foo young entrees and they were all extremely good. We are always sorry that we are visiting & staying in a hotel there so couldn't take home the leftovers!

“Good food, cheap, close to work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

I've been going here for well over fifteen years now. Never got a bad meal. Oh sure, there may be better places to eat but I enjoy this place. In The Heights, it's very reasonable.

“Very good, varied menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I think it is the best Chinese restaurant in the Heights. Very simple decor, fast service. They have some dishes with mango--I tried one and found it syrupy (mango syrup?). Takeout is fast and good.
