    I have been going for years and I have to say it is one of my favorite Chinese take out places. Closest I get to NY take out. The owner is a wonderful lady who has a sharp memory for who you are and what you order.

    Seriously the best Chinese food ever. Amazing quality and it is always made fresh. Huge portions and very quality ingredients. Walk up window and cash only.

    WOW!WOW!WOW! this review is for the wings(i will never order anything else). This was my first time and was recommended by a coworker to get the Jalapeno Wings and the Shrimp Fried Rice combo. Yes it was $9 but totally worth it. Trust me i've had the claimed "best" chinese wings in both San Francisco and New York, but this place just knocks them out of the ballpark. The wings are amazingly tasty, spicy and addicting. Yes they are greasy but thats whats so good. this is not you every day food maybe not even your weekly, and maybe not even once a month meal. Im sure it packs calories, way too many. But its just comforting to eat this. Its a huge portion of both wings and rice, so you will have leftovers. The rice was quite good, probably in contention for the best fried rice i have ever had. The only thing i didnt like was the .50 cent charge for hot sauce. good thing i have my own at work and didnt have to buy some. P.S - dont be scared of the place. its totally worth it.

  • K J.

    They have the best Jalapeño wings, French fries and shrimp fried rice! Reasonably priced food! The sloppy bags are pretty good too! I often order the jalapeño and hot oil on the side to enjoy with French fries!

  • Doron G.

    Love places like this I always get the A4 A1 or 15 the chicken is on point food is very good despite the look and walk up window but that's what I like about this place. Don't be scared food is worth it

    What I affectionately call "Ghetto Chinese Food" or "Chinese Soul Food" if you prefer. Here are the essential characteristics of Ghetto Chinese Food, in my opinion: cheap; decent (not good or bad) cuts of meat; huge portions; a tad greasy but not so much; questionable neighborhood; suspicious looking customers; served out of a hole in the wall; and lots of chicken wings on the menu (i.e. fried, buffalo, jalapeno, garlic or BBQ). This place has it all; that is why I give Liyuen five stars, because as far as Ghetto Chinese Food goes, this place is as good as it gets! I have had the egg foo young, several chicken dishes, the egg rolls, shrimp fried rice and the chicken wings. I've enjoyed it all. I will be back, especially when I want to eat a ton of food for six bucks. If you like this place try Tam's.

    Tons of food for cheap! Decent taste and not over powering sauce. Please note: cash only.

    This place is straight up hood. I turned down the street and a dog was just running around. my heart broke for that dog for the rest of the night :( I wanted to take him home, clean him up and give him to someone for christmas. I see this graffiti covered building. only, not really a building because there wasn't a door. just a tiny window. not just any window, but a bullet proof one. with prison bars on the outside? ummmm....... the back doubled as a junk yard. vacuum? check. gnome? check. stray dog? random couch? check. check. my friend shouts- this is it!!!! here it is!!! I'm so excited!!! uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh there were a lot of people hanging by this 'window', they were perhaps homeless?? convicts? i don't know. but this place works like this: walk up to the window, place your order, and wait. my friend was like 'im not bringing my whole purse up there, i don't want to get pick pocketed.' so I said, 'ok, i'll bring mine. it doubles as a weapon'. and we made our way up to the window. the food was dirt cheap- we got two eggrolls, chicken fried rice, spicy chicken dinner, and 12 wontons and diet coke. we spent a total of $16. The food was A-OK and while we waited even more people came to the window. this place was hoppin. the fried rice was the best- it was super buttery and i loooovvveee butter. the chicken was plain old breaded and fried w a glossy 'spciy' (not really at all) sauce. the fried wontons were just decent, and the eggrolls were delish. but this is not a place i would come back to. for fear of being robbed. call me angel princess, but i couldn't get over the 'ambiance' to chow down and not think twice about what type of quality meat i was eating at such cheap prices... try it if you're brave because it was definitely tasty for the price....i think....

    Despite feeling like you might get carjacked, stabbed or robbed every second while waiting for your food, this place is excellent! To avoid a wait while outside of their window, I suggest calling ahead, however, you can walk up and order. Usually the gal who answers says it'll be 10 prepared for a 20-25 minute wait at times. I am a fan of the veggie egg fu young, steamed broccoli, sesame chicken, orange chicken, egg drop soup sans chicken, french fries, fried mushrooms (these are huge, like as big as tomatoes)..the list goes on. Their combo plates have fed our family of four when we've also added an appetizer. It's truly some of the best Chinese I've had in downtown Phoenix. I'd equate this place to any dive Chinese joint in a large city like NY, Chicago, etc. It looks totally unappealing but is a treasure! I have never seen anything bad happen here but I always wear closed-toe shoes and have my hair pulled back when going here.......It seems less scary during the daytime and when the guys who work at the car repair shop right across the street are still around which I have seen be as late as 8. Please give this little place a shot and, remember, it's cash only!! And, there's no ATM on site either.

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
