Houston Press' Description

Open since 1971, this old-school Hunan and Szechuan restaurant serves up classic dishes in a casual atmosphere. The dining room is elegant, the dishes simple and the servers considerate. The pictures of Marvin Zindler tell you that the kitchen is clean; Mr. Zindler even has a special dish named after him. The lunch specials range from $6.95 to $8.50 and include an eggroll or soup with standards like chicken and peanut fried rice or twice-cooked pork. Dinner gets a little more upscale with items like Peking duck and Szechuan lobster.

    Food is great, service is awesome. Haven't had a bad dish here yet & we've eaten here for years. Kid-friendly, group friendly - just friendly.

    Dine-in and take-out are both delicious. Excellent food that includes diet-friendly options listed on the menu. Friendly and prompt service. You won't be disappointed!

    Еда ужасная, начиная с закусок и кончая десертом, к тому же дорого и воняет пережженным маслом! Больше сюда не ногой
