Went to this restaurant for lunch with my family on 17 May 2015. This restaurant has a history of having been selected in a scene in Rush Hour (starring Jacky Chan). Overall as a Chinese Malaysian having eaten better tasting Chinese dishes, the food served in this restaurant only get an average score from me. The only place in the... More

Nice to see a place in the movies. They have signed pictures of the Rush Hour cast on the wall. It's not very big inside but you do get your moneys worth. The food is good but the service wasn't that great. Server was not very friendly. Seemed ittritated with people taking pictures. In my opinion, if you don't like... More

Restaurant was on rush hour. They have very good weekday lunch specials. We ate sesame chicken, chicken fried rice, egg drop soup, and fried crab wontons. Everything was fresh, good, and service was quick. It's exactly as it was in the movie...(slightly outdated..) but very good nonetheless. We will be back again.

I can't give this restaurant an excellent rating only because I haven't eaten at what I would consider to be top-notch Chinese restaurants with which to compare it to. But it is worthy of very good due to the quality, proportions, and value of the food. You also can't beat saying you dined at the restaurant where a portion of... More

Just missed the early bird dinner special (ended at 5.30pm) but got the $11.95 special which included rice, mixed entree and wonton soup (see photos). The food was plentiful (see photos) but too much oil used and the beef wasn't exactly prime. The wonton soup was nice though and the spring roll and fried prawns also lovely. Rush Hour starring...

Excellent luncheon deals. $4.50 or $5.50 or $6.50 lunches include soup and steamed rice. It is a complete meal--and very tasty. Located right in Chinatown, the sign begs you to see what's inside. "Jackie Chan's Best Seller Movie Was Shot Here". Food is very good, and table service was very gracious. The $5.50 lunches include chicken with assorted vegetables. Plenty... More

The only thing that impressed is Jackie Chan's signature on the wall. The food was not good enough, the atmosphere is less then OK. Wouldn't recommend

I am quite surprised that this restaurant had few reviews considering they serve authentic and delicious Chinese food. The chicken wings and stir-fried beef are their best sellers and yes, oh so flavorly yummy. It is also good to mention that a scene from Rush Hour 2 was shot here. They even have framed photos to prove it. So when... More

Delicious, Affordable, Well decorated restaurant. After 1st visit to Chinatown, L.A. we had to go back here to eat lunch. It was recommended by a shop keeper across the street. Good food and the lunch specials were well priced. Nice atmosphere. We will be back again. I am not aware of cocktails being offered or not.
