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.

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.

The price was very reasonable and I was expecting much higher price as the restaurant is situated in a tourist area. Really value for money! Highly recommend to anyone who visit China Town. BTW - Jackie... More
