    It's confusing when you first arrive, but you order at the very back. They have a lot of tofu options, and the sesame tofu was amazing! I only had to wait 10 minutes.

    Spicy dishes were barely spicy (spicy fish filet and mapo doufu.) if you're white, you may have to make extra clear that you actually want it spicy.

    Authentic Chinese food, mostly szechuan. Pretty much all of it is good! Ambiance lacking though.

    Wonderful fresh Chinese food. Healthy comfort dish- Jade Chicken. Lot's of bang for the buck and I always have yummy leftovers to take home, a big plus. Jade Chicken is GF, a white sauce, no soy.

    Love this little place. Hidden in a strip mall, if you blink you'll be missing some of Austin's best Chinese goodness. Everyone talks about the Spicy Fish which is great but my fave is General Tso's!!

    Ridiculously authentic Sichuan cuisine. Favorites include the spicy fish and chicken in XO sauce, and we love the happy chaos of the perpetually packed dining room. Read more

    Cumin beef is VERY spicy, but excellent if you can handle it. Easily Austin's best Chinese restaurant, btw.

    Pan fired dumplings are amazing. Huge portions for around $10 each, enough to share. Don't expect a relaxing experience though, it's always quite loud and family friendly.

    Lots of vegetarian options, large portions for ALL dishes. Stir fried pea leaves are awesome, but best as a side. Since the portion is large, split it with a friend and get another entree too.
