We stopped by a second dinner on the way home. We ordered the spicy cumin lamb noodles. They had a good kick and was very tasty but really oily.

I came here after reading the many reviews and after watching Andrew Zimmerman on Bizarre Foods rave about this place being his favorite Chinese restaurant in all of Manhattan, we decided we had to try this place. What a mistake! After asking for and ordering the four most popular dishes we were astounded to find that not one of the dishes we tried warranted any positive reviews. I was absolutely shocked at how horrible and disgusting these dishes were. The dishes were nothing more than a variation on the same theme. Flat, long noodles which were cooked in chili oil and some with meat but, overall, a complete disappointment. Didn't take more than three bites of each dish before we left knowing we had tasted enough of this crap. I can't begin to understand what the hype is all about! Don't even bother unless you want a disappointing experience.

We ate at the branch opposite MOMA and highly recommended. Good choice of dishes and they do take away as well.

This place is the best!
The food is very tasty and the noodles are amazing!
We took the pork soup which was delicious! I asked for a non-spicy meal, and it was spicy (but still very good), so be careful with your order.
We also took the burger, which was good but small and we regretted not taking a noodle dish.
Enjoy!!! :-)

Lots of locations so you have no excuse not to try this. Authentic Chinese street food. Loved that vegetarian options were clearly marked. Mixed reviews on the 3 items we tried: I liked the cauliflower and tofu dishes while my husband lined what they are known for: the noodles. All a bit spicy.
