I have eaten at this restaurant since the mid 80's when the food was absolutely sensational. Ever since the mid 90's however, the food quality has gone downhill. Yes, my friends, DOWNHILL! The sauces have gotten way too commercialized to the point that all the dishes taste the same! The food just does'nt have that zip anymore. \r
And to top it off, recently a few months ago, we ordered a dish and as I was about to dig in, my wife had a look on her face. I said, ""What's the matter?"" And she points to the dish and says ""Look, there's mickeymousepoop on the dish!"" I would never have noticed this because mousepoop looks like black pepper but lo and behold, it was there! So I said why don't we just scoop it out and eat? No way. We took it back and thought they would give us something else or give us something on the house for being totally grossed out but no. They just took it back nonchalantly as if it happens all the time.\r
We will never go back ever. And I'm telling you my friends, before you eat your dish, take a close look just to make sure. With all the multitude of good Chinese restaurants in Chinatown, why eat mousepooh?\r
Also, the cashiers are rude as hell and $1 for another scoop of rice? Are you kidding me? That's the biggest rip off. And don't get the pickled vegetables. We had some once and it had a foul/rotten smell/taste to it. The biggest proof that this place has gone downhill? It's no longer crowded and you rarely see Asians here anymore.
Pros: Used to taste good, now not half as good
Cons: Crowded, rude, all the sauces taste the same, dirty
