This is my second visit, and the waitress disappoints me! I order a dish of beef, but there is a hair in the dish, beef combined with hair! The waitress said there is no women in the kitchen, and looked at me! She meant the hair is from me! What a funny thing! I don't recommend this restaurant!!! So bad... More

You should skip the meal unless you just die for hungry. The pork was terrible and disgusting, while the seafood noodle taste like instant noolde cup in supermaket. Do not ever never go again.

We went to this restaurant for hot chinese tea and dinner. The location was near to our hotel, and the food quality was ok though not quite authentic. We chose the Chinese dishes but not the Japanese dishes (as we knew that the chef was probably Chinese). In terms of price and services, it was ok. The tofu was quite... More

Worst dining experience in years of travel. The food was horrendous: 'crispy beef' the texture of old jellyfish, 'Szechuan' fish in a goopy, flavorless gel, roast duck made 2 days ago and microwaved into dry leather. The waiters are beyond rude (one adjoining table resorted to both people waving their arms... in vain), and the waiters are as likely turn... More

Had a good meal here, better than other Chineese restaurant visited. Reasonably priced and good value. Service was strange, little if no english spoken but got through. No frills with ordering greeted and asked for order wit the words OK.

Don't make my mistake of going here ... It used to be your typical lower budget but nice Chinese restaurant. What happened? This time, too much vinegar in the soup made it nearly inedible, & the "buddhist mixed vegetables" included canned peas, some gummy not-quite-cooked noodles, & only few mushrooms & carrot slices. There were no greens, bamboo shoots or... More

This was my strangest dining experience ever. When we got there we were given a table by a man & woman, who barely spoke two words. Of course my 3 year old had to use the bathroom immediately so I got up to look for one. The dynamic duo was just standing there pointing to the basement. I was a... More

We found this place by chance. We came here three times it was so good! Lunch, dinner and next day dinner again. The food is great Chinese! Would recommend the chicken noodle soup! The staff are very friendly all except one, I think she is the boss lady, she was quite rude to us.. Also, if you order one pot... More
