    Hipster central. Get there before 7 and the line is reasonable. Kung Pow pastrami and Szechuan wings are great

    Kung pao pastrami seems like a really weird idea until you take your first bite, and then it suddenly seems so obvious you'll wonder why nobody else is doing it

    This is the grossest place I've ever been to and in the scariest location I've ever seen. As soon as I stepped off the 33 bus, I just wanted to get back on and leave the area.

    Their selling point is being tacky. Food is solid, but that atmosphere is not so appetizing... Would probably order take out from now on

    Servings are huge, mapo tofu and the bacon noodle dish are quite spicy. Rice is $1 extra but they brought out enough to feed the four of us. Waitress was cute.

    Not just overrated, but downright bland. The fried rice fish dish everyone raves about is basically a huge plate of flavorless carbs. So overpriced, little flavor.
