Chop-Shop II is the Flatiron branch of Chop-Shop in West Chelsea. Not having been to the original, I can’t compare them, but we have enjoyed our two meals here very much. My only complaint is that, as with many Asian restaurants, the food comes out a little too fast. You can easily be in and out in forty-five minutes.
The food is a mixture of Chinese, Thai and other styles. Dishes are well spiced without being mouth-burning. We loved the lamb dumplings, chicken lollipops, coconut curry risotto, spare ribs, and flank steak. Szechuan orange beef and drunken noodles with shrimp were good but could have been spicier. I love that they serve Beer Lao.
Service was cordial and attentive.
