Not great, they forgot some of our items and the others were not as tasty as usual.

Food was delivered over an hour late. We called the restaurant after waiting for an hour and they said it hadn't even left the restaurant yet. Poor service! more

Excellent Chinese food just off South Street 12/31/2011

Ate there with my wife for the first time today and we really enjoyed their vegetarian dishes. I started with the vegetarian wonton soup, which was followed by Moo Shu Vegetables with Tofu and brown rice, This was served with hot tea and fried wonton noodles with duck sauce - all this happy vegetarian could ever want! My wife had the same soup as I had, but went with the mock chicken with broccoli in garlic sauce - an excellent choice! The service was great and our waiter was very friendly and great to chat with about traveling in China. Sam was back in China taking care of his other restaurant, so we'll just have to wait and meet him next time. We'll be back! more

Editorial review from GrubHub 9/6/2008

Last five plus orders have been very different than in the past and very disappointing... really tried to give it an extra chance/s. It's so sad, been ordering here for over two years now, used to be a favorite, now we have to say goodbye :( more

You're All Crazy 8/28/2008

You people are nuts - this place STINKS!!! Nasty, greasy, filthy food. In a city with a great Chinatown, how anyone can consider this good Chinese is beyond me. CANNED mushrooms? Are you kidding me? Absolutely NASTY! more

Sam 8/24/2008

To the below message on June 15, 2008. Sam is back, and has been back for sometime. He was in China for about 8 months he told us.\r \r I guess you werent checking hard enough. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 7/25/2008

Food was quick, but soggy. Crispy items packed in styrofoam when hot = soggy. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 7/23/2008

Awesome. Everything you'd want, great selection on their menu. Food was great especially the wontons in hot oil! more

Great Chinese, Great Vegetarian, Great service 6/17/2008

I agree with the last comment. The food's great and Sam is a wonderful host. He was gone for awhile on vacation or something but he's back now. I just went in last week and saw him there even friendlier than ever. Pros: full vegetarian menu of all your favorite chinese dishes Cons: parking near south street is a problem more

some of the best chinese food i have ever had but where the f*** is sam!!!! 6/15/2008

about 2 years ago, my bf and i faithfully started coming to this place every weekend for delicious chinese food. we also had no car so we were going by train, bus, boat you name it!! but after we got our car we came up there one night and some greasy teenage girl was standing behind the counter, and the tables had been moved around, only enough for us to know that it was a difference. the food was not only disgusting but our beloved sam (the front end guy we love, who even knew our orders by heart) was not there. they gave us some junk about how he went on vacation. that was almost 6 months ago. evey so often, when we are on south we drop in, and he still is not there. without any notice, a letter or anything posted in the wonderful wall-o-entertainment, he and his staff were gone. what happened? we stopped eating there. hopefully everythingis okay with sam.(we miss you buddy) ps....that chick at the counter got our order completely wrong, it were things flying around, and we were over charged, twice. if sam aint there i doubt we will eat there evey again. Pros: WAS some of the best vegan vegetarian and chinese food i had ever had Cons: the guy who was the primary owner of the place is gone. i wont eat there again without him more
