This Chinese restaurant was the talk of the Hawthorne when it first opened its doors in 1990. The savory tastes of Asia had not yet found their way into this area of coffeehouses and boutiques. Now, the restaurant is a landmark and continues serving Chinese fare. The copious menu selections, most of which are MSG-free, range from daily specials to vegetarian lo-mein noodles. The Crispy Eggplant is sour, spicy and somehow creamy. As the servers fly by with overflowing plates, sit back and enjoy a cold domestic or import beer.
Do not waste your time. I have my culinary degree and have been in industry for years. I wanted some good chinese food and thought i would try this out because of the reviews. When I picked up my food and inquired about the overcharge, the Owner informed me that there was a 50 cent charge per To Go box (& that I should have known that) and that rice was extra per serving. The beef in the brocolli&beef looked like pork, its color was so light that it scared me and the General Tso s had a weird aftertaste like the oil was tainted that it was cooked in.
All in all, I will not go back and wasted $$$
