Guo’s restaurant is like one of those new Chinese restaurants (and there are many) which sells every single trending food item among Chinese people right now. That means hot pot and mala tang, hand pulled noodles, skewers and a bunch of wok fried dishes. I think this place markets itself as a north eastern Chinese restaurant.

We came here and ordered the bean paste noodles and a mala tang. The noodles was seven dollars and the mala tang was over ten I think. The mala tang was okay. The noodles were great and were the exact style of zha jiang noodles that I prefer; they were drier and less saucy than other varieties.

The interior looked like it was redecorated relatively recently. It’s nice.

Service was about as bad as you’d expect from your average Chinese restaurant. If your a fan of authentic Chinese food, you’re just going to have to get used to bad service and dirty restaurants.

Overall, this place was okay. I’d come back to try other stuff on the menu… if it was convenient. You need to keep in mind that there are a ton of new Chinese restaurant with skewers, noodles, hot pot and a few wok-stir fried dishes. If it’s convenient to go somewhere else, I will, because the food here is common and everywhere.
