We love this place for takeout or delivery. Everything is very inexpensive (5-8$ for noodle and veg dishes, 8-10$ for meat or chicken, 10-13$ for seafood.) and i kinda think it should be in the 10 dollars or less category, as there's nothing close to 20$. The quality is very good, and so is the value because the portions are so big. My husband loves the sweet and sour chicken, and I love the mixed veg dishes. The service is always polite, and delivery is pretty quick. I probably wouldn't eat in, but the restaurant is clean and tidy.
This is priced like and looks like a typical neighborhood Chinese restaurant, but the food is spectacular. I've now eaten through their entire vegetarian menu, which is excellent. The chef has also made vegetarian versions of a variety of dishes. At one point, I mentioned that I wished I could eat their beef with hot pepper (a sizzling plate beef dish with bean sprouts that had just wafted by), and they made a tofu version that looked, smelled, and (I'm guessing) tasted just as good as the meat version.
I recently ordered chicken chow mein, s+s boneless pork and wonton soup for take out. The service was quick, and food was a very nice surprise. The restaurent is small, but clean and warm. The lady owner is very pleasant and happy to please.
Like I said in the title, the atmosphere is really lacking. The place has about 6 tables and florescent lighting, it's one of those hole-in-the-wall type places that at least *tries* to be classy, so A for effort guys. The thing that I really love about it though is how clean it is, and how fast the staff are to cleaning up any kind of mess that occurs; you know, babies throwing food around, spilled sodas, etc. I ALWAYS order the wonton soup there, it's the best wonton I've had in this city, hands down. Best thing in the world for nursing a hangover. I've actually been known to travel across town for it... I think it might have magical properties of sorts. Anyways, The food is fantastic. No bits of cartilage that give you the icks when you bit into your sweet and sour pork, no intensely fatty pieces of beef in your chop sui.
The staff are pretty great too. One of the full time staff members there is way too polite, in a funny ha-ha that's really cute way. I once had a solid 4 minute conversation with her in which we only said thank you. It made my day and was really strange at the same time. I'm going for wonton tomorrow to beat the epic hangover that awaits me. Happy new years all!
