Love this place. Their spicy beef szechuan noodles are so good especially during winter and their dpible cooked dry intestines are the best! A must try for some spicy food!

Quick courteous service. Good spot for time sensitive lunch during work week. Reasonably priced. Food is fresh, a bit spicy, but good.

Average rating not based on food- that is actually excellent and authentic. However, there is ZERO customer service here. Cold , unwelcoming front desk and brusque service. I have no doubt this may be the way it is in China- DOES NOT PLAY WELL HERE...More
