Where to begin with this place? “The many drug dealers in wheel chairs (they at times walked down the street on their own so don’t feel bad for them) sitting 3 feet from us on the other side of the glass lent an air of the degenerate life to our meal,” wrote one Yelp reviewer (you can’t make this stuff up), and many more complained of a waitstaff that speaks very limited English and treated non-Spanish-speaking customers poorly.  As for the food? “I took a bite into the chicken and felt something scratch the top of my mouth. I took the piece out of my mouth and realized it was a metal piece the size of a staple,” wrote one reviewer. “They will be hearing from my attorney soon since I ended up in the hospital and received a tetanus vaccine and 3 medications for this problem.” “The meat seemed to have been boiled till it was a horrible stringy tasteless mash and what should be crispy skin was like a piece of rubber WTH,” wrote another. In 2012 it was ranked one of the dirtiest restaurants in New York by Business Insider, which cited “live mice” and “inadequate personal cleanliness.”
