I've been going here for the past 21 years and have ever been disappointed. Is it the best Chinese food in the world, no, but it's not bad either. They have lunch specials to choose from which are pretty varied so you have plenty of...More

This is by far the best American style Chinese food in Brooklyn. The crab rangoon actually have crab, the dumplings are huge and the house tea is wonderful!

Stopped in while exploring the Heights. Had a great lunch. Ordered from the regular rather than the lunch menu. The cold noodles in sesame peanut sauce were outstanding. Very friendly waiter.

It's worth the steps down to enjoy their food. Generous portions. Always served hot even for take-out. Especially like their cashew chicken. When we want Chinese food that's are destination even though there are a number of Chinese restaurants in the area of Brooklyn Heights
