I have been going to Andy's for a decade now because it's one of the few sit-down Chinese places in Brownstone Brooklyn. It's usually fine for basic Chinese dishes and even some special menu items. We never go here expecting anything more than a lowbrow, neighborhood place when a Chinese craving strikes. The past few times the food has been very greasy and not tasty but we decided to give it another go for dinner last night. We were served strange, almost inedible versions of the dishes we ordered (Sesame Chicken and Bean Curd with Broccoli). The bean curd was fried into tough little cubes- not the lightly fried, soft tofu you would expect in this dish, the Sesame Chicken was basically a flat, beige chicken cutlet, sliced up and drizzled with sauce at the very end. Even the rice was not satisfactory- overcooked. The service left much to be desired, our waiter hardly said two words to us and was nowhere to be found when we needed a check. To be fair, he was running around while the other two employees were staring into space by the counter. Even though there are not many other options for Chinese and this place is around the corner from our house, we are done with it.

Had a great meal here today, and can highly recommend the beef with broccoli and the shrimp in garlic sauce. One of my dinner companions lives in Flushing where Asian food abounds, and said this meal was a 9.5, with 10 being the best. As one of the previous reviewers said ... "the staff was friendly, and the restaurant is cozy. The prices are reasonable."

PLEASE DON'T EAT HERE!!!!!! UNSANITARY FOOD.

I always order from here, tipped the guys good too and ate here until today. I ordered beef with broccoli and I found a HAIR wrapped around the beef and it looked like a pubic hair. I was so disgusted I nearly threw up and washed my mouth out with listerine really good. I then reported them to the health department. I will NEVER order from here again. This experience is detering me from ever ordering chinese food again, even ordering out again too. I'm posting this because I don't want people to go through what I went through today. Check the food before you eat out or don't eat out. PLEASE! PLEASE! DON'T EAT HERE!! Obviously the kitchen is unsanitary.

Yet Another Asian Greasy Spoon on Montague Street

Andy's is one of SEVEN nasty Asian take-out joints that line a two block stretch of Montague St. It's the same greasy Chinese take-out you can expect from any hole in the wall. You have two flavors to choose from at Andy's: deep-fried grease or stir-fried grease. It doesn't matter whether you order a chicken, beef, pork, seafood or veggie dish because they will taste the same depending on which flavor you selected. If you're looking for delivery, might as well dial-up Joya on Court Street for some decent Thai food. If you're dining out, spend the extra $10 on a cab over the Manhattan bridge to Oriental Garden, just two blocks over the bridge on Elizabeth and Canal.

The food is presented well and you could definitely taste the difference from take out. It's very different from Chinese take out, from the taste to the setting. I've gone here plenty of times and have tried almost everything on the menu, nothing strange with this kind of Asian cuisine menu. My personal favorites are the steamed happy dumplings and thin pancakes! Those along with many others are not normally found in on take out menus!!! So it's different and delicious. I recommend this place for a date too, if there are lovers of Chinese food but don't want that greasy cheap take out, this is the place for that. Very clean cut and guilt free. thumbs up!!!

i had to write this review. i actually just came back from Andy's. It's a personal favorite, the food is non greasy even if you do order the spare ribs. If your thinking healthy, go with the sauteed veges, they have a great Asian flavor to them and they are worth the try.

Greasy Nasty Meal

I was jones'n bad for Chinese food. I searched Urban Spoon's votes in Brooklyn Heights and decided on Andy's because of another review on New York Magazine's site describing 'non greasy foods and healthy Asian sauteed vegetables.' The place looked nice, the lady at the front desk was only moderately disinterested in taking my order. I expected some grease in the pu pu platter, but not in the tofu and veg. A pool of oil floated above in the sugary liquid drowning the ingredients. American broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, snow peas and a few strips of bok choy comprised what the other reviewer might have considered asian vegetables. Sad. The pu pu platter's spring role was greasy and chewy, the dumpling seemed mostly uncooked as the casing was thick, raw and gummy. The ribs were very tough. Chicken wings weren't too bad and only one of two beef skewers weren't tough like the ribs. I feel poisoned by the little bit of this nasty meal I ate. This was def not worth the calories.

Brooklyn heights' most excellent Chinese Cuisine. A usual take out on rainy days or during the winter. The resturant is a wonderful comfort zone with asian designs. A new call for Chinese Cuisine all over again with a menu of non greasy foods and healthy asian sauteed vegetables. This wonderful cuisine is true to the ethnic asian food. RECOMMENDED VERY HIGHLY
