Like pickup trucks in a BBQ joint you know you are in the right spot when you have to talk slow and point to the picture menu of items to order. Authentic
Avoided the monster lamb dish ( go hungry for that ) but enjoyed every bite of sweet, sliced fish and sizzling ( careful, it really comes out hot and sizzling to the table ) beef and vegetable dish. Meat was tender and delish. Side of pork fried rice had nice pork included. Slightly overlooked but good.
Food and service is FAST. very casual, just off Main Street and good spot when you are stuck at LaGuardia and have to stay at Sheraton east in Flushing. Or, the Beijing of NYC.
Wine by the bottle only. A few common beer choices.

The restaurant specializes in the cuisine of Northwestern China, with meaty dishes and spicy noodles. It is a comfortable sit down place with great menu items and about right prices. The foods are authentic, tasty, and the portion is about right. The chef’s recommendation is pretty much to the point so they are a great starting point. We ordered green bean sheet jelly with red chili oil and it was wonderful. A popular dish is the beef bone with meat and marrow and it is wonderful for those are in for an adventure.

Second visit to Great Neck location. First was during 'soft opening', most recent after several weeks in business.
Similar impression each time: staff were eager, yet very uncoordinated. Inconsistent service, even by 'Flushing Chinese' standards.
Several dishes (both visits) had similar issues: good quality ingredients with little flavor and little integration of various flavors within a dish. Case in point: hot & sour soup was nicely presented in a small 2-3 portion tureen ($7.95). Mild black or white pepper note, no 'sour' [vinegar] tones at all. Almost no other taste or seasoning notes (no scallions noted, bean curd and mushrooms minimal flavor) in dish.
Special chicken casserole nicely presented in it's own crockpot; cubes of solid chicken in a generic brown/soy sauce liquid. Main flavor note was mild saltiness, not complex melange one would expect. Ingredients didn't seem to merge.
Another vegetable dish (Potato's and peppers) billed as spicy consisted of filly julienne potato strips with strips of hot pepper mixed in. Potatos were oily with slightly underdone texture. Only flavor note was individual strips of crispy pepper (almost raw/barely sautéed). Flavors remained as two separate ingredients which happened to share a plate, not as a unified dish.
Pork dish was another exercise of several ingredients which veggies were undercooked (pork well cooked) in such a way that there was no melding of flavors. It seemed that all ingredients were left to fend for themselves, not being allowed to join into a greater presence as a unified dish.
Overall impression is that good quality ingredients were thrown together in dishes which never got the chance to reach their potential. Seasoning was too understated to be noticed, and many expected flavor notes were lacking. Underwhelming food coupled with scattershot service in a nice setting. Prices high side of reasonable, hard to justify for underwhelming presentation.

The crispy fish with cumin and the lamb with cumin were exactly like the Uighur food I had in Beijing. Very authentic. I hate regular Chinese food but this is delicious. Not gloppy. If you want a totally different dining experience from American "Chinese" I fully recommend this place.

Had the pork fried rice, fried pork with salt & pepper, and the chicken & mushroom vermicelli noodles......which was quite tasty.
