Great Eastern, Chinatown -- thumbs up, thx!

Thanks for this and many other suggestions, fellow hounds. Another hit.

Checked it out for lunch today. Got the beef and tofu. Asked for it with less oil, as I usually do. The beef was tender and juicy. The tofu could have been added to the sauce a bit earlier to absorb more of the sauce, which was incredibly succulent, juicy, and smooth. I felt drinking this sauce, but there was only a teaspoon or two to drink up. And I'm not a sauce drinker! So, if the tofu had been added a bit earlier, and possibly even quickly deep-fried first for a split second, the dish would have been heaven. Also, there was a lot of tofu, about 4 oz and only about 1-2 oz of beef. But in any case, it was well above average, and for only $6 for lunch, a steal. Just made a reservation for 10 after that.

Also, the ambiance was a big plus. Clean, obviously recently renovated with new carpet and new glossy black banquet chairs, linens, pleasant decor, and above average service.

Thanks again for this and other tips!
