I have been twice in as many weeks. The place is classic, old school "Fine Dining" Chinese, but without the super potent all liquor drinks. The menu is massive. I have to assume that everything is great given the volume of people this place pumps...More

The food was outstanding! There were ten of us and we ordered five mail courses to share and we had food left over! Hot, fresh, delicious! Get a reservation ahead of time because it was packed at 7pm on a Saturday night.

A few of us remember the original China Chili on Central many many years ago. The owner and chef is Chinese, but he created an exciting menu for mainstream crowds. He sold the restaurant long ago, but my favorite Spicy Szechuan Prawns are still there....More

Lunch is inexpensive and portions are good. They are busy at lunch. If you want authentic Chinese food, skip this. Service is prompt and friendly. Lunches are served quickly.

I am not really sure since I don't drink alcohol of any kind. I can imagine they would serve alcohol as there is probably some demand for rice wine and oriental beer.
hi , this is a cool communication, being from n.y.c, and dining mostly in Chinatown, favorite was HUNG FAT, they have retired, and from Brooklyn, I am aware that n.y. style is different from az., questions. shrimp in lobster sauce, n.y. style, or az with black beans egg rolls, love greasy, filled with pork, or other proteins fried rice, dark, moist, egg pieces, bean sprouts baby chunks of Chinese pork spare ribs, (I use ah so sauce to replicate that n.y. style wor wonton soup, hate it when the wontons are mushy, have no pork or veggies inside. lo mein,, again greasy is the word I grew up with, lots of meats, and saucy. thank youfor the opportunity to share, I know you are known for spicy, but I am confident that would be an easy fix for you, I for medical reasons cannot tolerate spicy food. HOWEVER MANY FRIENDS RATE YOU AS THIER NUMBER 1 RESTURANT. I ENJOY DIAMONDS, silver dragon hope to hear back from you elly marder i

I think the menu has a lot of dishes that could qualify as greasy, but I think they are actually oily, as a number of items are prepared in a wok in oil and not fatty grease. Perhaps a bit healthier, but certainly tasty... More
