This restaurant bears the same name as two other NYC restaurants, but I believe is under separate ownership and management. I often frequent the Wu on 48th Street, and that is truly excellent. Having said that, I try to eat at this Wu once a week, because there are some dishes there that are wonderful and unusual. The cold sesame noodles are among the best anywhere. The hot and sour soup is excellent. The brown rice is delicious - flavors that hint of flowers, great texture - But here's what brings me back: They make a dish called General Tso's Tofu that is out of this world. I need it at least once a week. It is the sauce from General Tso's chicken (which is a dish I don't care for), on a pan-seared tofu that has the most wonderful texture and consistency you ever ate. Two people can share cold sesame noodles and General Tso's Tofu and get out for $18 and change. It is wonderful. My favorite server wears a badge that says, "King," which presumably is his name, but he is very quick and helpful, self-deprecating and entertaining. It's not La Cote Basque, but neither does it carry the high price or the snobbish attitude. For a quick lunch, this is definitely worth a try.
Pros: General Tso' s Tofu to die for (only place I've seen it), friendly, entertaining service, quick in and out
Cons: the installation is a bit run down
