Full Kee has been serving authentic Cantonese family style meals long before Chinatown was gentrified. I used to come here for midnight meals when I was in college, which was 20 years ago, and I was glad to see they were serving the same food...More

Went here between lunch and dinner hours so very few people in the restaurant. For a major city their lunch special prices were very reasonable and under $10 per meal. Have 'true' Chinese dishes as well as typical Americanized versions. Good food. Prompt, friendly service.

Went there after a long day of sightseeing. Stopped in a bar for a drink and the bartender told me this is whee he goes for Chinese. It is nothing fancy inside but the food is amazing!

Food was pretty good. I did enjoy the Chow Fun. I also order Hong Kong Soup and Sazchewan Chicken with Pork Fried Rice.

I eat wonton noodle soup. Personally, compared with ordinary foods in US, that soup was light taste.

We visited this restaurant with great anticipation after reading all the positive reviews here. How disappointed to be served with mediocre Chinese BBQ (must be days old - chewy with dark ring inside the cut meat) and the wonton noodle is also not that great...More

Walking back and forth to the convention center during rainy weather and this little spot has these glorious smells. I had to stop. Dumplings, soup and tea = warm enough to go back into the elements.

No. Stairs to go to the down stairs dining room are difficult; only a few stairs (1-2) to enter building.
