Dying for Chinese between flights on way back to UK. Very genuine Chinese that you will find all over the world. Efficient service, decor won't set the world on fire but one is here for the food.

Stopped at the bakery to get a watermelon smoothie, coffee roll, coffee mousse and fruit custard tart. All were delicious and the bakery items come in a beautiful box.

Can't wait to try again, as we were sat family style with 2 others, and whatever they ordered looked fabulous! We had 2 different noodle dishes, 1 with shrimp, 1 with chicken. Took home leftovers and had 2 more meals!

Decided to give this a try while walking through Boston's Chinatown one evening. We agreed on sharing 2 starters and 2 mains between us both. First off came the Crab Rangoon & Peking Ravioli. To be honest, I didn't touch the ravioli as my colleague...More
