  1. The best in Park Slope but that's not saying much. I think a real authentic Chinese restaurant of any style would do well in this area.

    1. The portions are small but that's Ok since the food is meh. Not cheap either. Better than any other Chinese place in the slope but that's not saying much. Too bad. I had high hopes.

      1. I have ordered from there a few times.
        It's a "notch above" other take out places in Park Slope, food is packaged nicely; quality is good.
        I will continue to order from there.

        1. Based on one take out order, food is definitely fresher, higher quality ingredients, and made to order vs. the usual suspects in Park Slope.

          1. I had a Groupon for this place. Everything seemed really fresh, not the greatest, but good and tasty. I went there with my husband and mother-in-law, who happens to be the world's pickiest eater. She loved the beef with broccoli and moo goo gai pan, although she thought the wonton soup was pretty spicy. I also thought it was on the spicy side, but I enjoyed it. Unlike micki, I didn't think the portions were that small. We had leftovers for the next day.

            BTW: I pass by 4 & 20 Blackbirds everyday and have never seen anyone enter or exit the place. Until I saw a profile on the Cooking Channel, I thought it was another (sigh) bar.
