Enjoyed food and service

My wife and I went there for Xmas dinner (Jews traditionally eat Chinese on Xmas day). We ordered sizzling rice soup,which didn't sizzle, and was okay but a bit bland. We next had the pu-pu platter for two which was lots of food but was kind of hit-and-miss. The spareribs were delicious, the spring rolls were ordinary and not very... More

Hands down, the best Chinese food in the area. Closed temporarily due to fire in September, but I can't wait for the grand re-opening.
