Extremely delicious, savory and spicy. They use a special spicy pepper from the Sichuan province of China which I've been searching for everywhere in Manhattan but never found. The pepper numbs your mouth and is super spicy. A little piece of authentic southern Chinese food in Manhattan. Things to order are the lamb burger, spicy tingly beef and the tofu.

so, nymag raves about this place, tony bourdain loves it, and a friend of mine rec'd it to the fullest. that said, i went, very eager and excited--- much to my surprise, the food was deeply disgusting. i had the hand-pulled noodles w cumin spice lamb (their specialty). now, while the noodles themselves were remarkably delicious and as fresh as could be, the sauce (calling it that is perhaps too generous) was a two pronged mixture of: 1) a CRAZY amount of oil and 2) a proportionately CRAZY amount of cumin powder. no dynamic deliciousness, no real culinary effort. honestly, so repulsive. there was about 1/2" of grease filth in the bottom of my to-go container. i thought about washing the noodles and repurposing them somehow, but couldn't do it. i had to throw the whole damn thing out. SO SAD! the decor and service ratings are N/A for this place. all they've got is their food, and it's awful. such high hopes, such a sub-par experience.
