Was invited to this restaurant by my cousin when I visited LA. It is not a huge restaurant but cozy with a very pleasant owner and staff. Since I came from Hong Kong where there are plenty of excellent Chinese restaurants, I did not have high hope for authentic Chinese cuisine as experience tells that many are of the chop-suey...

Been enjoying their food for 20+ years. They never disappoint. Authentic flavor, large portion size, fresh local ingredients.

This is a wonderful chinese restaurant - the food is delicious and the service is outstanding. I've not had any dish there that I did not like. I go both for their luncheon specials or for for dinner (which is significantly more expensive) - but the portions are huge and I feel the prices are reasonable.

This is a simple restaurant with a huge menu and excellent food. Team is always very attentive. I especially recommend the crispy orange beef. Note that the dishes served are very large. Prices are very acceptable.

Celebrated our annual Chinese New Year's family and friends dinner outside of San Gabriel/Alhambra area and was pleasantly surprised at authenticity of the food. Peking Duck, Lobster Cantonese, Walnut Shrimp, Steamed Rock Cod, Pepper Beef, Chinese Long Beans, Leaves of Pea Pods - yum! Service much better than expected. Many other Asian and Asian-American families also celebrating CNY dinner so... More

Have been coming here for years. Fantastic food and good iced tea. Love the Banjo Tofu, Peking Duck, Scallion and Ginger Crab, Sweet and Sour Fish fillet and Vegetarian Chow Mein. A great place for family celebration. Staff is friendly, attentive and helpful.

We needed everything non-spicy for my mother's 92nd birthday, so they made all our favorite dishes heat-free. They were still scrumptious! Everyone attending to us a kind, patient and in all ways helpful. I have a theory that the same big truck backs up to the the service entrance of every Chinese restaurants in American and delivers frozen packages of... More

We just went there for Christmas dinner and we were very impressed. We had prawns (boiled), crab with Oak Tree Special Sauce, and snow leaf pea. The meal was fantastic. The servers were no-nonsense and did an excellent job continually clearing plates and keeping the table clean. I highly recommend this place for seafood.
