Try China Tea Garden in Gentilly instead

Cheap enough, but heavy and sooo greasy - definitely no return trip planned. The place was packed and doing a thriving take-out business - my best guess is that folks appreciated the extremely homey quality of the food. The service was much better than other reviews on this page described, and the location was not as poor a neighborhood as expected. Inside, could either be hole in the wall or an authentic experience depending upon the kind of person you are. The food was the real problem: My fried boneless chicken with vegetables while all white meat, had too many ""parts and pieces"", not my favorite, and the vegetables were totally saturated with the heavy oil that marked both mine and my guest's meal. Soda came in a very tall red plastic cup, but no refill was offered. My guest's Kung Bo Chicken was ""a little gloppy"" and not traditional in KP flavor or veggies. And so heavily oiled. The eggrolls looked downright succulent and were stuffed with shrimp, but by now we were looking a little more carefully at our food - each shrimp was badly in need of deveining, glaringly so - a sad conclusion to a sad meal.
