This place is just on the outskirts of the UT campus so I definitely made my rounds to this place several times. Sometimes for some take out, to dine-in, or just for a cup of tapioca (because it's slightly closer to campus than the two boba places a little further up the road or I'm in a hurry).
I have to agree with most of the other reviews. The place isn't the best when it comes to cleanliness, but then again, it's not the most unhygienic place I've been to. Their food's not bad, though I did take my grandparents there once and my grandpa kept on commenting on how he could make it and even better. If you haven't been before, just stick with the recommended favorites and you're good to go. Otherwise, if you're planning on making several trips, then feel free to explore a bit. I have to say outside of the recommended dishes, there aren't many favorites (perhaps two or so) and most of them can get pretty mediocre. However, I do like the option of brown rice that you get, so props to that. As for the staff, they're not the friendly kind but they do their job and I honestly can't blame them. As long as my food comes to my table in a timely fashion, it's pleasant on the taste buds, and edible (I'm not very picky nor am I a difficult customer), then they've earned themselves a repeat customer. Especially when it's so conveniently located and the prices are just right. After all, there aren't that many vegetarian Chinese places out there, right?
If all else fails, just get a t-shirt to put a smile back on your face. :)Pros: convenient, reliable favorites, t-shirts
Cons: not the cleanest, not the friendliest
