I'm guessing there are better dishes than what I ordered for lunch
I stopped in for the lunch special, and had been meaning to eat there for a while because I have heard great things about them. I ordered a chicken dish, which was served with bamboo shoots and onions, with the appetizer plate preceding. I loved the crispy noodles with sweet sauce, the noodles with peanutty sause was passable, not remarkable, and there was a fried wonton/pancake item that was nice, but again nothing worth writing much more about. The chicken dish I was very dissapointed in. It seemed to be flavored only with soy sauce and red chilli oil, and basically ""missing something"" as they say. I don't send food back a lot, but did in this case. Unfortunately, I was told that most of the dishes on the lunch special menu have the same sauce, so opted for a beef soup with noodles. Again, the soup flavor seemed to be missing something, not a full flavor, not rich, just sort of a weak flavored bone broth with chunks of short-rib beef that were tough, dry, and a challenge to chew and swallow. I was very unsatisfied, which is a shame because I have heard great things about the place. I will have to listen to specifically what people recommend to eat there, because what I had I was very disappointed in. The waitress was attentive and satisfactory. The ambience is a place that I would go for lunch, but not for a romantic or professional dinner.
