My BD Party

We had a private room and 28 guests for a food orgy, with my relatives, friends and guests; most of them loved “mild” Chinese food and Tony Hu’s kitchen is noted for true Szechwan cooking (spicy), the compromise was a little of each and some slight change in the amount of “heat” added to the great food served. There was a selection of appetizers followed by the main courses. Egg drop soup started the meal, followed by seafood, shrimp and beef dishes and Tony’s special chicken was a huge hit. My family hired a magician, for his grand finally he called me up and as I stood, I almost passed out… the end was at the emergency room… too much heat and a drop in blood pressure ended my 80th BD party

Questionable service, excellent food!

Chinese Private Parties Lunch
  • The lot in front on Archer is always busy and fills up quickly. Either allow time to prowl or try your luck up one of the side streets.
  • Try family-style hot pot specials available each day for $14.95; bubbling broth cooks fresh meat and vegetable ingredients along with noodles in an experience akin to fondue. You can also host a private party in the upstairs dining room. Call for details.
