    If your thinking about ordering the tofu&pulled pork.. Make sure you get some extra soy sauce. (A little dry)

    Get a few orders of soup dumplings immediately upon getting seated--they take 10 minutes to come out

    Yummy food. Great service. Opinion about the restaurant deco was a bit overrated in NY Times review. It's definitely not a typical Chinese restaurant atmosphere. But not that memorable ether.

    Ma po tofu is like eating potpourri, way too much Szechuan peppercorns. Spiced cumin lamb was good. Vegetable pot stickers arrived lukewarm.

    Every thing is slow, kitchen, lunch but can't wait that long. And I'm not very impressed by their dishes, other Chinese restaurants deserve Michelin's star unless judge only know spice

    Good kungpow chicken but have them hold on the Pepercorns! It ruins the dish. Super intense and small and hard to avoid.

    The Mabo tofu is awesome! Chungking chicken is ridiculously spicy only for the true lovers of spicy fiery food beware!

    It's straightforward. Have the rabbit. Have the kung pao. Have the eggplant. Have the Mapo tofu. Smile.

    Pass on Chungking chicken: oddly salty w/ no other flavor (certainly can’t taste chicken) & not that spicy (it has the highest spice rating). Place is probably overhyped; I’ll give it 1 more chance.
