We used to come here and have dinner because they had a promotion where if you spend at least $25, you will receive a Peking duck with buns for half the price. The food is tasty but also a little bit pricey. The restaurant also...More

It's so nice to be able to order Peking duck off the menu, rather than ordering several days in advance (and never doing that). Their Peking duck is first rate. It comes on a large platter with bao buns placed around the beautifully cut-up duck....More
