How come no one reviews this place? The menu is limited, but it is the best Chinese in this entire area right now, fully Sichuan, the chefs are from Chengdu. There is hot pot on the main menu, but mostly you should use the menu on the chalkboard and then another, only in Chinese menu, written out on a small business card, which you need to ask for. The Ants on a Tree is amazing here, probably the best I have had, ever, including in China. The kung pao chicken I also recommend. Everything is excellent. Do note it is usually a pork-heavy menu. This place would stand out even if it were in Flushing, Queens. Not so many seats, so do call ahead for a reservation.
Oh man, went here last night. Just incredible. We got pot stickers, Dan Dan Noodles, Ants on a Tree, Ma Po Tofu, and Kung Pao Chicken. I am hard pressed to pick a favorite all were excellent. The Ma Po Tofu was easily the best I have ever had and as Tyler said, the Ants on a Tree is amazing. Is it bad that I want to go back already!?
I think there has been turnover in the kitchen, not at good as it is was – first mediocre meal and it wasn’t busy either.
