Chinese restaurants don't get much more ‘revolutionary’ than this. By revolutionary, I mean the decor which looks like a room in a Northern Chinese village pasted with red lanterns, propaganda music and newspaper cut-outs.
In fact, not even in Beijing you will find a restaurant that transforms you 50 years back. The main review is only half right about the food. Most of the dishes, like the Baozi meal deal and porridge （小米粥） are Northern Chinese dishes.
Because of the cold climate in the north, the staple food is rice, porridge and lots of Baozi (usually eaten for breakfast).
The quality of the noodle dishes can vary, such as the Bamboo Beef noodles. On a good day, the beef is spiced just right and the broth should be hearty. Although, because it can get very busy, they probably don't have enough time to let the beef soak.
Still, most of the dishes are easily better than Leong's legend (the food is getting consistently worse there).
