Nice separate Veggie Menu, Nice Ambiance

Posted on 05 / 06 / 2013

Chinese veggie fare with special focus on noodle soups.
They literally have two menus - not a single menu divided into a veggie side and a non-veg side. I liked that. I tried their standby General Tao's chicken, and it was acceptable, bear in mind I'm very picky. I have tried their noodle soup before, that might be a better choice. Lovely people, great ambiance, busy, lots of well-to-do New Yorkers eating in there. I paid $17 for one dish.

Pros: General Tao Sauce, Vibe, Staff
Cons: Expensive for what it is, Unoriginal

This is a great find on the West Side. We were looking for a place close to a improv theatre. It's near Fashion Institute of Technology and Penn Station. Very convenient. The food is good. They have vege and non-vege fare.There is a nice sized vege menu. The basic mock chicken is mouth watering. The staff is helpful. The decor is cool.

Pros: near mass transit, good selection, tasty
Cons: small bathroom, has non-veg menu

Not Bad

There is a variety of selection in the vegetarian menu. The food is a bit oily and come with a good one person portion. Attentive service, it is a none pure vege place that i would go again.

Pros: Service, Ambient
