This little Chinese restaurant is in the shopping center at the corner of PCH and Crenshaw just down from Trader Joe's. We figured the food must be good cause there were only Chinese people eating in there. The menu is basic and the service is good for a Mom and Pop sort of place. Just basic, solid Chinese food.

Nicely appointed, small intimate space, convenient to PCH and Crenshaw. Excellent service. The name of the restaurant is quite apt.

Very tasty authentic chinese food. All the food taste very fresh. Everything we have had on the menu has been very good so far and we have been there five or six times so far. Appears to be small family owned restaurant. Prices are very reasonable.

No MSG! Definitely the place for me. I usually order the beef stew with flat rice noodle soup. Every dishes I have ordered there taste great! except... the roast duck. It used to have really great roast duck, the best around Torrance; however, it changed its quality and the duck no longer look roasted; it looks deep-fried.
