Seems authentic, atmosphere no bells and whistles, food seemed really authentic and the restaurant gave off a vibe like there was some little old asian lady in the back cooking her homemade recipes...and that goes far with an inner loop crowd! We enjoyed the fish the most, I did like the mapo tofu, but seeing all the oil rise to the top after the tofu was gone brought on some remorseful feelings. The green beans good! The beef dish was ok. It's odd, you think they're everywhere, but I feel like everyone is always looking for a good Chinese place and I really hadn't found that, but I think this place might be a good place!
