Had a birthday dinner there with 3 tables! The food was very tasteful and portions were large! Seafood is fresh and the salt and pepper Dungeness crab was so yummy. They serve dim sum daily🙏🙏🙏 Parking lot is small but ample street parking.

Excellent place for fresh seafood dinner. Good food and service. We come here often to eat fresh King Crab or King Lobster which are kept alive in tanks. excellently cooked, Chinese style. Extremely tender and tasty. Pricey but worth it for special occasions. Must try.
