If you're expecting to grab a plate, stand in line at the buffet, and pick and choose your favorite "Chinese" dish, think again. This is a family-style restaurant sporting food of quite a different flavor than every other Asian restaurant I have had the pleasure to dine in. You will sit, and the food will be brought to you. Think fogo without the loss of $50 from your wallet. The staff is amazingly accommodating and you will find yourself having a hard time saying no to a second or third helping of pork chops or sweet and sour chicken! This place screams small town diner. The ambiance is quite nominalistic, but in the end, isn't it the food and service that keep people coming back? Bring your friends and enjoy yourselves as you need not worry over a menu or constantly getting up to refill your plate.
The service is great, even with just two waitresses, who know us well. I stopped at the sixth chamber bookstore first, while my husband went in. My coke was brought out without him ordering it. I got my usual, garlic chicken. I have never seen anything like this on other menus. It's loaded with onions, shredded carrots, bamboo shoots, sliced chicken, and what seems to be jarred garlic, gently tossed in a light sauce.It's not a saucy dish. I love it so much I don't add rice. I only eat a few onions, and they are so tasty that I take them home to use in other dishes. My husband got his usual, kung pao shrimp, always good. One note, they have some of the best egg foo young, served in a delicious gravy.
This is seriously the best Chinese take-out place in the cities. Great quality and quantity for the price. The owners are super friendly and it's always a great idea to eat here. I've actually recommended this place to so many friends that I once walked in to order and spotted two friends in line in front of me! The only thing is that they don't have noodles on their menu that I am aware of. But what is a tiny flaw like that when compared to awesome food, pricing, and service? HIGHLY recommend you check it out. Like now. No, I really mean it.
