Took our family of five there last night. Went mainly to try the potstickers and dumplings, but they were out of both only an hour after opening. The service was inconsistent and the food was bland; the Chinese food at the Hawthorne Safeway is more enjoyable. I got the sense that this was once a great find that has suffered... More

We've been looking for authentic Chinese food locally, and this place tops the list so far. Since it serves Szechuan cuisine, some of the dishes, like the "hot chicken pepper bath", are not for the faint of heart. That particular dish even had the mouth numbing szechuan peppers rarely found here. Still, all the dishes we had were excellent. The... More

I really want to give Lucky Strike more stars because their food is good, unique, and interesting; their bartenders make terrific drinks; and their Servers are all so nice. Unfortunately the greasy dining room floors, and smelly, urine stained mens room without hot running water, doesn't allow that. Pros: flavorful Asian food that rarely disappoints; excellent use of spices (they... More

We came for dinner around 6pm. When we got there, there were only couple of tables with people. We ordered out appetizer and food at the same time. Our server was Evan. He brought our egg rolls after 20min. Then we waited another 20 minutes for our entrees. People that came after us, were seated, served and left before we... More

As a preamble, I mentioned to a friend of mine that I thought Lucky Strike was the worst Chinese restaurant ever and he immediately chimed in "It's actually THE WORST RESTAURANT, EVER". He's a chef at "bamboo", an Asian restaurant. For starters, the atmosphere is dreary and the table set up strange. And the first thing you notice upon entering... More

The Dan Dan noodles are so addictive. I also love the baby short ribs and the beans and beans. Always a couple great microbrews on tap and a rad vintage martial film on the big screen. Such a fun place to eat. Best Asian happy hour in town, by far!!!

This place has the best Chinese food I've had, outside of San Francisco. The service and atmosphere are not quite up to the food, so I can't give it an excellent. The service wasn't awful by any means just not quite as attentive as they could have been. The atmosphere also isn't bad, just a little bit funky. That said,... More

The best Szechaun food in Portland without a doubt!!! They have a menu that everyone and anyone will find satisfaction in. The staff are fantastic and so is the atmosphere. Stop... More

Lucky Strike is next to a music club. You wade through a passle of bizarre hair, tattos, and burnt out roadies to get into the restaurant, which features a flat screen showing non-stop kung foo movies to a backdrop of 70s/80s era rock. The food is straight-ahead traditional Sichuan with spicy dishes that have attracted a steady stream of tv... More
