Foursquare Tips

  • Their take on the classic Beef & Broccoli dish is a braised short rib served alongside Chinese broccoli and thick udon noodles. Get at it.
  • If the Hunger Games' Capitol were a restaurant....
  • If you want your tastebuds to fornicate, order the green tea doughnut for dessert.
  • The miso bourbon glazed bass is on point. Melt in your mouth good.
  • New. Ambiance? Dim lighting, gold-and-red-brocaded wallpaper, candlelit lamps Size? 300-seat Menu? include grilled lobster, & pepper-steak sticky buns, green-tea donut
  • Tons of small portions, we ordered the lamb skewers which were packed with flavor and super tender. The chicken meatballs were also wonderful and I'd suggest getting the green tea doughnut.
  • The liquid Klondike bar ice cream dessert that splits apart when you hit it with a fork: it's everything!
  • Really enjoyed this emm spot. Loud, vibrant atmosphere. Pow roll and sticky pork buns were my favorite of the night but leave room for the green tea donut and chocolate trifle... So good !
  • Food was great. First place I've been to that does Sushi & Chinese food the right way!
  • Wayyyyyy overpriced. Way way way way overpriced
  • Trendy Chinese food by Top Chef Winner Hung Huynh. Get Cinderella Rice, Chinese chicken tacos, Boneless Spare Ribs, and the sushi. Dessert: Coconut cake with Coconut Water Sorbet, and Green Tea Donut
  • MOST of the fish dishes have oyster sauce so be sure to ask your server. GENERALly speaking, the dessert was better than the rest of the meal.
  • The General? This place should be renamed "The Private". Hyped up, under delivering madness.
  • Order the sorbet for dessert. You won't regret it
  • Overly fancy but the food is very good. Part of the EMM group.
  • Considering that this is an Asian restaurant I was disappointed to be eating with disposable chopsticks... And then the food came. Amazing!
  • Order the yellow tail tuna's delicious :)
  • So incredibly yummy... Get the tacos, general tso's lollipop chicken and for desert no question the donut... Possibly the best restaurant in nyc!
  • overpriced
  • Crispy beef, you will thank me. Schezwan chicken pretty good too.
