Wow. Can I just say --I've been a fan of this place for chinese takeout for years and it never disappoints.
I was craving my favorite stand-by for lunch, Kung-Pao much that I did the drive from south of the city to the Powderhouse Sq. Somerville location. Resisted the urge to open the bag and devour the feast right in my car, it smelled so good. And it was -- Tender strips of quality white meat chicken in a sweet/spicy sauce, mixed w/mushrooms, water chestnuts, red and green peppers, onions and peanuts. Fresh, piping hot, absolutely delicious.
I had two plentiful servings for lunch and I've got at LEAST 2 meals more meals left. Just over $9 with an order of rice.
Of course now I'm totally stuffed. But that's alright :)

Anyway, if you're anywhere North or West of the city (or even in the city) this place is definitely worth the trip for incredible takeout. You can eat there but there's not much atmosphere, just a few small tables.
Wish I lived closer, I'd be there at least once a week (and I'd probably sample a few more dishes and not always fall back on my favorite dish...)
