My wife and I decided to try this nearby eatery recently. We did takeout, as we normally do for Chinese. We ordered pretty standard fare: Kung Po chicken, beef lo mein, a couple egg rolls, and crab rangoons. The food was ready promptly and we got everything we ordered, but that is where the positive aspects of this experience end. The meat in the entrees seemed to be of very poor quality, and the entire meal was extraordinarily greasy and rather tasteless. The outside of the egg rolls and rangoons was not the light and crispy texture I am accustomed to. I usually relish eating Chinese leftovers the next day, but in this case, I just threw away most of the meal. Overall, it was a very disappointing culinary venture, and I would not order from this place again.
First Wok gets 1st Place.
Small but comfy little spot nestled in Hyde Park Square. I thought it was another personal lunchtime discovery about two years ago--but it's become the standard Chinese spot for my entire office. General Tsao's chicken is an all time favorite along with the chicken or shrimp egg foo yong. Really reasonable prices and friendly faces. Offers lunch buffet and quick carryout.
