In the heart of Flushing"s Chinatown, food doesn"t come spiced for timid palates. If you"re sensitive to heat, speak up before you chow down--or eat like a local and dig into authentically fiery dishes such as tender lamb with hot-pepper sauce and peppery ma-la shrimp. Withstanding the spice is your only hardship; otherwise, the dining room is pleasant, the staff is proficient in English, and the dishes are more than reasonably priced. The best deal going: a $17 three-entrée special, which includes soup, rice and dessert.
