… more pix on Google Maps, Yelp & TA.

So will not return.

Location: cross street from Copacabana Palace hotel, and half block from the famous prestige beach. However, the neighborhood feels crappy, like New York 23rd street.
Air conditioning: lacking
Decor: a little overdone but tolerable
Service: ok
Food: subpar
Tableware: plastic and some are chipped
Utensils: fast food or school cafeteria

They opened late on this Sunday. One waitress serving the small room, who looks shaky when serving the wine. They don’t have tea, the hot steaming yummy tea.

Food: we’ve wanton, mapo tofu and garlic charsui (pork).
Fried Wanton: so so. Only because I wanted dumplings during the Chinese lunar new year. The filling isn’t too bad
Mapo tofu 麻婆豆腐: is 家常豆腐. No spicy at all. I asked for some spicy sauce, it came sweet.
Garlic charsiu: what’s the hell is this one? Where is my garlic?!? Both tofu and this one use the same dark sauce, which is, so $5.99 Flushing.

Bathroom has no ac, on a 92 degrees day.
