Chinese | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

The female server was not very on point, but a fabulous male bartender took over for her and became our waiter and that changed everything. He was so on point! He checked on us, he made great drinks ( HH special, I think it was a Lychee martini?, it had the Lychee Gel cube in it and it was so good. )Ordered 4 between me and my friend. lol. Food was authentic. So authentic sometimes, it was a little unusual for my taste, but overall enjoyable and fun to try new things. You have to be into that sort of cuisine to want to come back, but the drinks were so good, we are likely to come again. Wish I could remember the bartenders name, he made it so warm and fun. If we had been dealing much more with the space cadet waitress, she kept not coming back, seemed dazed, like she was on something....this review would have been much different. The bar had a Xmas party kind of thing happening with a group , but there were open seats in the next room by the fake fireplace, the tv and the Christmas tree. We were overlooking the city with a beautiful view from the 4th floor. It was lovely. More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
