After a LONG, LONG time, central CT finally has a truly authentic Chinese restaurant worth going to. The food is spectacular, the service is stellar, and the ambiance is nice.
I waited to review this place until I ate there five times, because I wanted to make sure it was consistently amazing...believe me...it's consistently amazing! My family and I, along with several friends I've taken, have tried several different items on their large menu offering. There are a couple of items I probably wouldn't order again, not because they were bad, but because they just weren't quite my taste. Everything else is just beyond incredible!
After the third visit, I learned from the server that they can make almost any dish vegetarian-friendly, which was awesome given that we had two people in our party who don't eat meat or fish. Every server I've had has been incredibly friendly and very attentive.
Dishes I LOVE:
-Dan Dan Mein (noodles)
-Stir Fried Snow Pea Leaves
-Sauteed String Beans
-Twice Cooked Pork
-Veg Lo Mein
-Chicken Lo Mein
-Beef Lo Mein
-Hot & Sour Fish Soup
Dishes I thought were OK:
-Scallion Pancakes (a little oily for me, and not quite enough scallions)
-Mongolian Beef (a little too sweet for my taste)
-Eggplant in Garlic Sauce (a little too sweet for my taste)
-Lobster Sauteed in Dry Hot Chili Pepper (the flavor was delicious, but I didn't realize the whole lobster body was going to be served...I'm a wimp when it comes to cracking the legs and claws and all that. My brother-in-law who shared it with me, however, is not a wimp, so he did the dirty work and I got to enjoy the lobster!).
