The last time I ate here was maybe five years ago. I'm in Chinatown frequently, at least 3-5 days a week. I tried the sweet and sour "mock" chicken which is made of yams that is breaded and fried. The food is average, the atmosphere...More

Close your eyes upon entering, as this place makes you glad that you can't eat atmosphere. The service was terrific and fast. As a non-vegatarian, however, I felt hungry, even less than thirty minutes after I ate there. Usually, I find vegetarian offerings very satisfying,...More

This place is bare bones and nothing special to look at but everything on the menu is fantastic. Try anything and you'll like it and you won't even know it's meatless. The mock meats are as good as the real thing. The bad english translations...More

I have been eating here for years and return on every visit. Everything is excellent, but make sure to order the "roastduck".

Interesting range of completely vegetarian Chinese food. It's not high end fine dining .. It's everyday well prepared food in a simple local restaurant. A tasty selection. Top tip.. If you order too much they can get you a doggy bag!

My daughter and I have been coming here for years. One of our favorites is the "lemon chicken" made with yams. Even if you are not vegetarian, you will find something on the extensive menu that interests you. Good service.

My daughter raved about this place - told me that while she was in college she and her friends would come here all the time. On our recent day trip to NYC she talked me into coming here to eat. The food was surprisingly good....More

We were interested in veggie chinese. We had eaten here several years ago, enjoyed it and figured we would give it a try again. It was OK. The food was tasty but nothing out of the ordinary.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
