Though this restaurant is in an iffy stretch of 81st Avenue, and there was an empty 40 and a discarded thong in the parking lot, our doubts proved unfounded. The service was quick, attentive, and not overbearing; the server spoke American English, though he wrote the check in Chinese. The spring rolls were fat, crispy, and stuffed full of crispy vegetables and savory meat. The wor wonton soup was nice, though the stock was not the best I've had. The chicken black bean sauce in clay was savory and rich, the pepper salt squid was perhaps a tad overcooked, but a good iteration of a dish I use to gauge a Chinese kitchen.
Pros: authentic menu, excellent food, great service, amazingly low prices
Cons: creepy neighborhood
