It is always a pleasurable dining experience. we are always warmly greeted and promptly seated. the service staff is attentive, the food is consistently delicious and well presented. I highly recommend best restaurants for delicious take out, a romantic evening, or a small event.

Overall good food. On the expensive side as are most Kosher Chinese restaurants. Usually crowded so go during off-peak hours, if possible to get a table quickly.

Great, old fashioned service. Delicious food. We ordered way too much. We couldn't restrain ourselves. Well, we took half of the food home, untouched because the portions were very generous. Just like childhood...tea...Chinese noodles with sauce, even fortune cookies with sliced oranges.
