Good Chinese food in Williamsburg – I love this place! It's really clean, the food is never greasy, and their delivery is really fast. The sesame chicken is delicious, as is the chicken with garlic sauce. The portions are large, though I wish it was a little bit cheaper. I order from here at least once a week, and I will continue to in the future.
A sexy Chinese restaurant settles down on funky Bedford Avenue. – The Scene
A Chinese restaurant with a Williamsburg twist? Actually, with sleek black furniture, glowing light boxes and romancing couples, it's more like a Soho twist. The small restaurant's friendly service and reasonable prices, however, are pure Brooklyn.
Head chef Mark Cheng, formerly of Mr. Chow, has created a lengthy menu that occasionally overreaches with its specials but is otherwise well-executed. The dragon rolls rule the appetizer menu with thick clumps of fresh shrimp wound around a strip of soft crab meat. Some entrees tend toward the cloyingly sweet side, including the pineapple crispy steak and none-too-tender honey baby back ribs. The basics fare much better, such as the thick and chewy chow fun noodles, as do seafood dishes like the Red Bowl, a massive pot of spicy broth bathing a tangle of glass noodles, giant tender scallops, shrimp and calamari. Despite fancier options, plain old green tea ice cream is the best bet for desert.
Hits: The decor might be hip, but the atmosphere is fairly relaxed with an extremely accommodating staff and casually dressed patrons.
Misses: If it's described as sweet, it's way too sweet; if it's described as spicy, it's not spicy at all.
Worst Chinese Ever – Dull, fat, heavy, and burnt. Everything we tasted was awful.
On the plus side, service is friendly.
Bottom line: run away.
