Chinese, mix of Shanghai and Sichuan, plus some Japanese too. Small, cheap. I would not make a special trip to eat here, but the place has perfect location right next to the Verizon Center. Upstairs is remarkably quiet. Several times I have had no trouble getting in without a reservation. It is pleasant. And the food is “good enough to enjoy,” I do look forward to eating here when I do. The Shanghai and non-spicy Chinese dishes are better than the Sichuan, though the latter are certainly acceptable. This place is worth knowing about, if you understand its proper place in the universe.
