Different, but good.

Very accommodating service. Seated at a table for eight,no small tables. Ordered Wor won ton soup and walnut prawns. Both were excellent. Always wanted to try this place when staying at the El Rancho Inn. Short walk, half block. I will be going back again.

We were the only English people in the restaurant. They put us in the center of the restaurant and after a long wait took our order. Brought each dish out separate with long waits in between. The restaurant was not busy but the bus boys actually waited on us. Would never go back.

My friend suggested me to go this restaurant after I told him that I like to go eat Dim Sum to the "Hong Kong Flower Lounge". I gave it a try and it was really good. It has the atmosphere of most of the chinese restaurants around Millbrae... fresh fish, lobster, crabs, etc. The food is really tasty and good.... More

We traveled to Asia a lot in the 80's and this restaurant is like a trip back in time. Big, loud, gruff service, not too clean, but very good authentic Chinese food. The dinner menu was reasonable, and all our entrees very tasty.

The food was very plentiful and good. The prices were very reasonable. The service could have been a little better but all in all, we liked it enough to go back a second time!
