we have dined in this restaurant several times during the past 10 years. The quality is still the same: good food and good service. Would recommend the pan fried noodle with fish filet and the seabass filket with black beans and hot peppers.

We absolutely love this restaurant. Our faves: steamed or fried pork dumplings, salt fried squid, any of the noodle soups, seafood pan fried noodles, triple delight hot pot and any of the fried rices. Their food is so above and beyond. Cannot get enough.

Food here is very good. I will definitely go back. Large and varied menu. Simple little restaurant, with simple wood lined walls. Service is helpful and friendly, although a little slow. It is just what you would expect a Chinatown restaurant to be. I liked...More

I'm at a loss for words when it comes to this restaurant. All I can say is that this restaurant feeds you well! By the time you're finished, you'll be pleasantly stuffed that leaves a grin on you face. It's a BYOB which is fantastic...More
