We are so spoiled from eating at the original Great China on a nearby side street. It burned to the ground and the owners reopened in a beautiful space at Bancroft and Fulton St. Unlike the cramped, dingy hole in the wall the new place...More

This place has a satisfying lunch offering a nice variety of soup, egg roll, rice, salad, fruit and a main course for $9-11. You can still order regular dinners if you wish. Service is fast and professional.
