Slippery Shrimp!

If you love Chinese food and you are in the area of China Town this is one of the must have places to eat. Their menu is full of great items but one all time favorite is their slippery shrimp. It is so good that you'll want to have some to take home. The place is not that big but... read more

Terrific Chinese food both eat-in and takeout. I never get past the signature dish, slippery shrimp. Which are really not slippery at all, but mildly spicy and absolutely delicious. Well, I do eat other stuff, and it is all great: the usual Chinese staples, but done in high style. Totally recommended. In fact, I bring containers of the slippery shrimp... More

Took two friends to finally try the world famous Slippery Shrimp. IMHO, it's OK, but wondered why it's so famous. The spicy chicken dish was better. Then we got the bill, and it's also a bit pricey. No egg rolls or soups, but still expensive. I won't be going back.

It was a rather late dinner so I was extremely hungry. Even so, I was able to appreciate all our tasty dishes. The staff was quick in taking the order, serving the drinks and the appetizers. Everything fell w/in its proper timing that made the evening very enjoyable.

Service was very good, portions big enough ... but food quality was a disappointment. Our chicken, pork dishes had no personality, nothing special, heavily deep-fried, too sweet or too salty. Our noodles were also tasteless ... Nothing felt fresh ... Definitely NOT worth the visit.

In terms of volume, each dish is a Big one. But in terms of quality, not so good. There is way too much soy sauce in each dish, salty food~
