    Grab a couple of friends and head here to split the pork pancakes and the big tray of chicken. It's the perfect combination!

    Lots of visitors, but food lives up to hype. Da pan ji - get two portions of noodle

    For all the great reviews, I was disappointed by the spicy brisket. NOT spicy in the least. The noodles were excellent though. The soup dumplings were pretty good.

    Highly recommended is the hui mei with spicy brisket sauce, which might almost remind you of a European stew. Read more

    Better than Xi-an's - more flavor, more spice. Spicy beef stew noodle was yum, with a PBR from the corner Asian store for $1.50.

    The noodle soup is similar to xi'an famous foods but the environment feels more authentic, which leads to a more enjoyable experience.

    Pork pancakes are cheap and tasty! Overall though I wasn't as wowed by this place as others. Had lots of more exciting Chinese food.

    The most shareable dish is “spicy big tray chicken,” a humongous pile of poultry enriched with mouth-numbing Sichuan peppercorns. Read more

    Pork pancake + chili oil tastes like heaven (for only $2.50, and it is filling). Eat it at the park across the street.

    The Da Pan Ji (big plate of chicken) with an order of knife-cut noodles is the way to go here.

    Yes the big tray chicken is why you come, but don't miss the super oniony dumplings.

    Quaint spicy food place in Chinatown - if you like cumin-esque foods, this is good. Very limited seating; plan ahead. Also, I think they should not use plastic Asian soup spoons, low LOS from these.

    Big tray chicken is no brainer, but pancake with pork is also awesome

    They tell you 30 min but it ends up being an hr. Nothing is actually spicy. The chicken in the "chicken tray" is unrecognizable. Stick with the dumplings & noodle based dishes, if anything. Cash only!

    Grilled pepper chicken was really good. However, the vegetable dumplings had too much ginger we couldn’t eat it.
