Went to this place last night on the strength of a Globe writeup a few weeks back (see link), and had a great meal.

Started with a top-notch hot and sour soup which was thick, smokey, and appropriately spicy and vinegary. The normal menu is pretty run-of-the mill, so I asked for the "Chinese" menu (mentioned in the Globe article), which is totally in English, but contains items which might be a little too native for some tastes. I ordered spicy wontons which came in a thick sesame-based sauce, and then moved on to pork with dried tofu and leeks, which is similar to the Shangri La dish but IMO better at Peking Cuisine. I didn't partake, but the beer and wine selection looked pretty good. Service was attentive and the decor is classy and comfortable, a notch or two above your average suburban Chinese place. Definitely will be going back.

Location is on Bigelow Ave, right around the corner from Sepal, in the former Le Bocage space.
