I ordered #26 Kale with dry bean curd to go While the dish I got was OK, it was made with Gai Lan.(Chinese broccoli). I love Gai Lan, but I expect to get what I order. Furthermore, you cannot tell me it was a mistake - what kind of a cook does not know Gai Lan from Kale? They are nothing alike. This is a case of someone banking that the client is too ignorant to know which green the are eating. Sorry Charlie - I know my produce - You lose!!

Highly recommended vegetarian fare- hard to get now a days. We ordered the Schechuan- Tofu to share- as main course, vegetable rolls and dumpliings- and hot and sour soup as starters: we wanted to taste as many dishes as possible. The soup was excellent- piping hot but could have been spicier.... The dumplings and sauce were excellent The main course was a let down. Too much tofu- thrown into the sauce- very little by way of zing/scallions could have been doubled in portion while the tofu could have been reduced by more than 50 percent. Out choice- I certainly would have liked the tofu- fried a bit before being thrown into the tofu (notice the word thrown) that is how it tasted- sort of raw and uncooked- right out of its packaging. Service was excellent- and they load you up on a delightful tea (and keep the water glass filled)- service- service service- excellent- spice up the food - with onions, garlic and scallion and also bamboo shoots in the main course you ahve it made. I must admit- the hot sauce (chille oil we asked for was still sort of tepid)

We enjoyed a variety of tasty, freshly prepped appetizers. Glutinous Rice wrap main course was also yummy, though I had been hoping for more veggies (my friend's tofu dish had a wonderful mix of the latter). They'd run out of tapioca and crushed ice, so I just had a plain coconut shake --still delicious. We especially appreciated the chance to linger and chat over the check--the friendly still plied us with wonderful hot green tea and water.

This was one of the first places I tried when I moved to Philly and I'm kind of obsessed. Their sesame tofu is the best I have ever had. Their other dishes are very good too and the value is really good. One take out container of lo mein is enough to make several meals, if you want. The food is less greasy than other Chinese restaurants, which is also very nice. The service is good, the lunch special is incredible, and if you dine in you get green tea with your dinner.

I highly recommend the tofu vegetable soup and the fried mushroom strips. I've never had a problem ordering here, they always understand me and give me just what I've asked for (with the exception of getting brown rice once instead of white, but it was equally as good, if not better). One of my favorite things about this restaurant is how they don't call everything faux "chicken" or "pork." As a Vegetarian, even ordering something called beef grosses me out so I'm glad they don't do that. In conclusion, I love this place!
