    Try the chicken in XO sauce. It has plenty of veggies and strips of grilled chicken.

    The food here is legit. Authentic Szechuan cuisine from Southwest China. This isn't your traditional Chinese sit-down restaurant. You head to the front order your food then they call your order number

    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.

    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!!

    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.
