I've been here 2x. When I heard there was a good congee place in Flushing, I was pretty excited. Flushing pretty much has every type of Chinese food except for really good congee like Big Wong in Chinatown. So the first time I went, I ordered the mince meat congee, seafood pan fried noodles, roast pork & chicken over rice. The congee was luke warm. It's very bad sign because congee is something that is suppose to be piping hot. A big pot of rice gruel is simmered all day, and it's made to order depending on what type you order. The seafood pan fried noodle was a bit on the salty side, and oily - but this is usually a problem for most Chinese food. Overall, it was eatable and cheap. The second time I went, I only ordered the mince meat, squid, salted pork and peanut congee. It was just plain awful. OMG. They didn't bother to salt the pork - it was just a bunch of flavorless diced pork cubes. The congee had absolutely no flavor at all. I had to ask for salt and pepper. Worst is that there was a fishy smell to the squid. Not enough to kill you, but not exactly fresh. I was so disappointed, I never finished the bowl and left some behind. Anyone who knows me knows that I rarely leave uneaten food behind. So, it was really bad. Flushing has so much competition that if this place does not improve, and soon, it will not last long. When I walked out, I noticed that the congee chef was like a teenage girl who was suppose to be serving the 4 dish 1 soup take out. She obviously didn't know what she was doing and the restaurant simply does not care. Not to be a sexist, but the best Chinese chefs are mostly old men in their 50s with big pot bellies, chain smokers and got a bad gambling habit. You have to be a bit crazy and desperate to stand on your feet all day at an underpaid job supervising a big pot of rice gruel. Pros: cheap Cons: Dirty. I saw roaches crawling on bathroom wall more

Good food, nice atmosphere... but unreasonable price. 1/31/2009

The food here is actually pretty good; very nice plating too! However, the portions are small... and you should expect to pay a lot for it. Pros: Good food, atmosphere, service Cons: small portions; unreasonable prices more

Alternative to Dim Sum. 11/7/2008

The wait staff can be quick at times and other times no where to be seen. This is a good alternative to dim sum but a lot of times the crowd here is just a runoff from the crowd tired of waiting at Joe's Shanghai restaurant. Try the congee and various dumplings. Don't expect too much help from the staff when ordering. The menu does not describe in detail all the dishes. Parking even at the municipal lot on weekends and evenings can be a real hassle. Pros: Food is delightful and quick. Cons: Parking can be tricky at times. Wait staff is at times all over the place. more
