A view of the restaurant storefront from out in the parking lot - they are just behind the White Castle on St Rt 42 just North of I-275 interchange
Bombay Grocers is at the other end of this small strip shopping center - they are the largest Indian/Pakistani grocery store I have seen in the Greater Cinci area - their stock is unbelievably immense - only problem is the language barrier - they speak English somewhat but it it is hard to communicate at times - you could spend hours in their store if you appreciate their cuisines - I was in there before and after our lunch, with my lunch mates.
This is the website for this restaurant - it includes all their menus I believe: http://houseofsuncincy.com/default.aspx
Overall we found the food to be very good - the sliced pig's ears really started things off on the right foot - for myself and our duck lover - the ladies went for the deep fried bean curd and possibly tasted the ears but were gunshy of the dish to say the least.
My beef noodle soup was excellent as was the duck and General Tao's chicken and the Seafood Bird's Nest.
The only fault we found with the food was that the deep fried noodles in the Seafood Bird's Nest had a bad taste about them - they were fried in rancid vegetable oil it appeared.
Our duck man took home another appetizer, Marinated Duck and is still raving about it!!
We will definitely be returning to this restaurant - their menu is so extensive it will always be an adventure to choose your dishes.
They do a very good business - they were really packed for the lunch hours we were there (11- 1)
