Good food and great service. Had the pan fried chow mien with the works. Sauce was delicious and the honey ribs were great as well. Traditional Chinese food the way I remembered it in China Town 40 years ago!

Good food and prompt service. The food is reasonably priced and is highly recommended by the bus tour companies. Enjoy!

When not sure where to go even after consulting Trip Advisor, ask a local. Recommendation was R&G and now understand why. A little off the main drag, the menu was extensive, food delicious, and service friendly. The vibe had a throw back feel but what...More

This place is a stand by for me. The food is very good and reasonable. All very flavorful and fresh. However the decor is anything but fresh, looks the same as it did the day they opened, well not as fresh as you might guess....More

The place was recommended by our hotel. We have really seen better... we were disappointed. Nothing was bad. But nothing was particularly good either. Chow mein was more than flat and tasteless. The special beef ... had nothing special. Well...

Chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor; sometimes TA gets it wrong! Ordered roast duck and ribs with rice. Duck arrived and it looked great, however when the skin was pulled back there was literally no meat - all bones and fat. Apparently that's the kind...More

There are so many different teas they serve...most popular is Poo Nee which is a dark leaf tea that is strong and goes well with rich Chinese food because it helps digest the oil in the food. There is also Jasmine tea if you... More
