      Order what you like, it is not a large or extensive menu. Thrice Cooked Bacon, Kung Pao Pastrami, Broccoli Beef Brisket and Mongolian Long Beans are favorites.

        I'll second the Kung Pao Pastrami. Also the Chawanmushi dessert was very good.

        Don't forget the lamb ribs dish. They don't always have it on the menu and when they do have it they often run out early.

          Is there any strategy for getting in that doesn't involve waiting for two hours? What's the wait like at lunch time?

            They take reservations via email.

              No wait at lunch time if you arrive by 12:30.
