Chinese food with an edge.
Not your standard Chinese food. The hot and sour soup is spicy and the dishes tend to have a welcome edge to them that sets it apart from the rest. Youll find yourself craving it and holding all other Chinese food to that standard. Its located in a less-than-exciting corner of Dobie mall and can be packed with shuffling students during lunchtime, but the food makes up for the lack of atmosphere. The owners are always there and the food is always consistent.
Go ahead and pick anything, its all GREAT. Except for the full size fish, which can be a bit over cooked (if its available) It'd be good for a casual date, but the decor isn't...well, you know. Overall, it's my favorite Chinese/Vietnamese place in Austin.
