We went at nearly 2pm and the restaurant was busy, but not impossible. The servers were difficult to flag down, but not because they were standing around - those people were BUSY, moving every second. We split the steamed vegetable dumplings, I had the garlic eggplant, and the other diner had a whole fried fish. The dumplings came out last (when we had already given up on trying to finish our main dishes). They were HUGE. I found them a bit bland and added a bit of soy sauce. The other diner liked them plain. Portions here are huge! We had the leftovers for two more meals. The leftovers don't hold up quite as well as one would hope. Maybe it's because all of that oil separates out, but I found the leftovers heavy and a bit bland. So...
open all day, no 3 - 5 shut down, like so many places
HUGE portions at reasonable prices
reasonable food, freshly cooked and steaming hot
cuts of meat you don't find in "Americanized" Chinese restaurants
very crowded, even off peak times
just reasonable food
It gets added to the very short list of places we can go for lunch on Sunday at 3:15, but not to the top of that list. If the other diner didn't hate getting takeout, I would consider that the best option.
