My boyfriend and I had a Groupon of $30 worth of fare. We ordered the Lobster which was about 2.5-3lbs, appetizer duck and the Chongqing beef with one bowl of rice. Firstly, they didn't tell us how much the lobster weighed and I firmly believe they added at least .5lb to the bill as it came out to $76. Regardless the lobster was great. The duck barely had any meat on it. It was simply fat and skin overcooked to make the fat seem like it was actual meat. It literally came out black. We were tempted to send it back. They brought us two bowls of rice when we requested one which wasn't great for my gluten count and as far as the service went. The older gent with the long finger nails kept making these crude sex jokes that we kinda rolled with we're a pretty easy going couple that embrace all cultures. He wasn't too bad but at the end of our meal when we were discussing our bill and noticed they overcharged us for the lobster I looked back and the waitress and smaller waiter who has a disdain for serving... wagged his tongue at me!!! I quickly looked away in shock. I just wanted to get out of there. My partner paid the bill and I thanked him for a wonderful dinner. I didn't tell him about the tongue wagging incident because that would have resulted badly but I feel that the general public should know. On a positive note...All the servers pitched in to change our plates very frequently taking away the lobster shells as we ate... in hindsight we should have confirmed how much the lobster weighed.

Make sure you ask for Chef's Special if you want to try genuine Chinese Szechuan food. It's easy access and service is quick and friendly.

Groupon coupon holder beware- you will get very small portion of food and you end up buying more food at higher price. They simply try to fool customers, with Groupon coupon you get appetizer size food, not enough even one person. Poor food quality, Dim sums were frozen inside. Very disappointing place, wastage of money and time.

My girlfriend purchased a Red Pocket Groupon-like discount coupon, as she likes trying different restaurants. Those that are great, we certainly return to. This restaurant, however, will not be one. We made a reservation for Dim Sum around 12:30. We arrived, were seated promptly, and placed our order, handing over our printed Red Pocket sheet. The waitress wrote our table number on the sheet, and took it away to be automatically applied to our bill. The place had decor that was reasonable - we don't generally care about this, as we're really there for the food. We ordered somewhere around 10 dishes for our table of 3. The food arrived, and most of it was reasonably good. It wasn't the best that I've had overall, with some being great, and some being alright. I found many of them to be too oily, but could overlook that due to the overall slightly above-average quality of the food. They were fairly pushy with the Dim Sum that came by, especially considering that it all looked cold, and we had ordered a sufficient number of items to stuff us all. We requested our bill, which came after a couple of short minutes. The bill was full price, without the deducted Red Pocket, so we waved a waiter over to adjust it. Somewhere around 5 minutes later, the waiter said that he could not find the Red Pocket sheet, at which point we showed him the unique code on the sheet. A full 15 minutes later, we had to request our bill again, during which time, he was simply taking orders from other tables (keep in mind perhaps 20 tables and 5-6 front staff, which is enough for one to step away). We then received our adjusted bill quickly, after which we had cut our tip down to half of the original amount (~6%) due to the ridiculous incompetence that caused us to need to wait an additional 20 minutes. Upon seeing this lower tip, the waiter (manager?) informed us that we were to tip on the full bill. We informed him that the wait was unacceptable, and he proceeded to blame us for the wait. He then told us that we needed to tip 15%. I told that I can tip nothing if I want to. I have NEVER had a business demand that I tip them a certain percentage, particularly after their error, ignoring me, and then finally trying to blame me for their error. Although the food was reasonable, and I don't expect amazing service from Asian restaurants due to cultural differences, I will not be coming back to this place.

Everything was very good. The decor is dated but appropriate.
