It is OK... Service was satisfying, but we were at the end of an evening and things got quieter. The beancurd dish did not do it for me... It said marinated, but they just came straight from the wrap with some spices sprinkled on them....More

Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
