Really good Chinese, great service, great value

I don’t really feel qualified to post too heavy a review of a Chinese restaurant or food as I’m not really a huge Chinese diner. However, of the places I’ve eaten Chinese this one was very good.

I had the General Tso’s Chicken -a nice safe dish for the casual Chinese diner like me- and found it to be very good. Not extremely better than any other General’s Chicken but something I would definitely go back for when in the mood for Chinese and something that gives me confidence to try some other things.

The Hot and Spicy soup was excellent. Again, my typical order to help evaluate new restaurants and this was memorably the best Hot and Spicy soup I’ve had to date. Can’t say why it was so memorable specifically, but the consistency seemed just right, the flavor was balanced, and the temperature was perfect when delivered to the table. I’d actually consider having just a bowl of it on cold snowy days.

We went in with a group of six and were seated immediately. Mikky was our server and he was very polite and communicated well. Our food was delivered to the table in a timely manner and our glasses were never wanting for being topped off. All the staff was very cordial and we had a genuine sense they were interested in us as customers.

Perhaps the most pleasant surprise was when the check came. My wife and I ate the same thing and we got out for under $15 (pre-tip). Excellent for lunch on Sunday afternoon when we came away filled, with a dragon bag (right? instead of a doggie bag?) of leftovers for the next day’s lunch. For $5.95 the portions were amazing. We had soup, Genearl Tso’s Chicken which came with our choice of rice and some grilled veggies.

General Tso's Chicken

Not remarkable compared to other General’s Chicken dishes I’ve had over the years, but that’s a good thing. It was not over cooked, the flavors were mixed well with the sauce and veggies. I think it may have been a little heavy on the sauce compared to others I’ve had, but definitely not a horrific thing. The pork fried rice was great and went very well with the meal.
