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~

Very fresh food nd the best garlic chicken I have ever eaten. Both beef and chicken were butter-tender.

We come here for the amazing authentic chinese food, but the Slippery Shrimp is a show stealer. We have tried many items, all of them good, but slippery shrimp is one of the single best dishes of any restaurant ever. It's not even debatable!

If you are looking for a place to eat Chinese food, this is it!! Two words..Slippery Shrimp. The name throws off some, "what do you mean by slippery..?" but I assure you, if you like shrimp even just a little bit, you will not regret ordering this dish. It's on nearly every table for a reason! This place used to... More

My dad use to take me here when I was growing up, so naturally I come here with my husband & kids whenever I can. It's right in downtown Chinatown in Los Angeles, so you can walk down Broadway before or after you eat & look at all the shops. Usually there is no wait but still busy. There are... More

This is probably the best Chinese food I've had around here. It's always a good thing when most of the people in a Chinese restaurant are Asian and we usually seem to be one of the few non-Asians there. They have 3 places around town, the one in Chinatown and the one in Pasadena/Arcadia are great. The one in the... More

We were in Chinatown in LA and I googled "best hot and sour soup in los angeles", and this was one of the restaurants that popped up. Since we were a block away, we stopped in. It was crowded, but we got a seat and had a large soup and a couple of ice teas. I think the large soup... More
