The restaurant reminds me of San Francisco. Not much on atmosphere but their food and the service exceeds most restaurants. I have had them make a custom dish for me and they happily comply. That is eggplant with black bean sauce. Just perfect like Hong Kong not too salty. The hot pepper in oil is available sometimes you have to... More

This small restaurant did not look good from outside and inside. I already placed my orders and paid for it when I noticed a man was sleeping at a sofa at the corner close to the tables. I told them to go. It did not take 10 minutes and I was given already my orders. I think they cooked already... More

Would have walked past if not recommended. Looks shabby without the chic but food was stunning. Service was great and helpful. Food portions huge and very tasty, with some great local specials. Cant believe how empty it was but they obviously have a big take-out trade. Some of the best chinese food we have had anywhere in America.

I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happily surprised and even considered going back the next day! I was the only person eating in the restaurant but there was a lot of traffic for take-out - lots of traffic!! The food was quickly prepared. I had mongolian beef and it was incredible! You won't go wrong here for great... More

With a name like this, I had to check this place out. The food was very good and the people were nice. We ordered carry out, and you can do so online, making it easier. They sometimes had an online special if you spent a certain amount of money, you could get free appetizers like spring rolls (yum).

When you stay in Miami you spend a fortune most places, however I have to say we found a great place for Chinese, fairly priced and great food and service. It looks pretty shabby when you walk in but don't be fooled, it grows on you and is very clean at the least. The staff are very lovely and the... More

But it was a god choice and I would happily eat here again. The restaurant had a steady flow of customers, locals and tourists. The service was welcomng and efficient, food was delivered quickly....

Don't be put off by the nondescript exterior and grungy inside. The food may not be not top class Chinese cuisine but it is pretty good, plentiful and excellent value for money. The wines on offer are very good and the least expensive I have come across on Miami Beach. Best of all is the great friendly service and once... More
