Good maybe starting the night but not at all where I'd want to spend it. Only went up the second floor for a closed event so I can't really comment on the restaurant food. They did serve free appetizers of chicken fingers, fried wantons, and what I can only describe as fried shrimp sticks. All there were just awful and lacked any redeeming qualities to them. Flavorless and questionable of origin, though the chicken fingers were definitely the best of the worst. The bar/club area is on the smaller side though is not without a plethora of surfaces and seating. I'm going to guess that they normally move tables out of the way for dancing but they didn't when I went there. Also, a friend and I weren't officially on the guest list and the bouncer asked us to pay fifteen dollars each for unlimited PBR until 9pm. Even the bouncer seemed a big ashamed to be asking for so much and ultimately let us each in for just a $1. I think the only saving grace of the night was the scorpion bowls. Strong and delicious. I'd split one with friends anytime.

Honestly the food isn't as good as real chinese food, but it's a great place to chill with friends and prices are very good considering it's in an urban area.

Oh, my. There are many other brilliant restaurants in this neighborhood, so there is no need to eat here. The jaozi is the worst I have had in my life: the skin was thick and doughy and green for some reason. My Szechwan broccoli and fried tofu was greasy and sweetish; the broccoli was undercooked. Our table and those around us were visibly greasy and unwashed, and the service was quite "meh." I recommend eating elsewhere.

This is definitely a place to come late at night. The Pu Pu Platter is great drunk food, although. There are also Scorpion Bowls if you feel like getting more alcohol.

Do people ever come here not drunk? Just wondering...anyway, $12 to go to the 3rd floor. Such a random amount. We didn't go because we just needed food. The crab rangoon seemed like they were 90% cream cheese, which I don't have a problem with. Delicious. We saw the container moving down the table and clawed it back. Also got the spring rolls, which could have had their filling chopped more, and the shrimp fried rice which was great.

The service is good, and the environment is good compared with other Chinese restaurant. It is one of my frequently visited restaurants when I was studying in Cambridge. BTW, it is the oldest Chinese restaurant around Harvard Square, established in 1950s.

Decent Americanized Chinese food is served on the first floor. It's pretty good, so if it's convenient, that's great; but if not, it's worth going somewhere better. Upstairs is a loud, bro-y bar, with mediocre drinks. On the plus side, after one Scorpion Bowl, you probably won't care.

I'm not sure what previous low reviews were on about. The spicy bean curd and vegetables was a cut above average Chinese-American food, full of black beans and garlic. I'd definitely eat here again.
